Vacancy Description





The MAT 

Our MAT is moving into an exciting new phase led by a new leadership strategy since September 2019. Whilst we know there is work to be done following the outcome of our recent Ofsted inspection of Chingford Foundation School, the school has the full support of our parents/carers and staff and remains well over-subscribed for September 2020. We believe we are in a very strong position to reverse this position quickly. Prior to the inspection we had already begun to implement plans to take the school to outstanding in the future: our MAT objectives declare an unequivocal aim to reach outstanding for each of our constituent schools and the MAT itself.  Our vision include plans to grow the Trust with the right partners in the future. South Chingford Foundation School is already an Ofsted Good school. 

Our Vision, Values, Mission and the Trust Charter 

Trustees have recently developed a vision, values and mission for the Trust. 

Our Trust vision is to offer the highest calibre education; a blend of traditional knowledge and contemporary thinking, delivered by dedicated staff with access to an unrivalled professional development model; plans will be focused on the development of existing and future partnerships that contribute strongly to our community of schools; inspiring innovative thinking to prepare our students for the technological, social and environmental challenges of the future in our rapidly changing world. 

Our Trust values will permeate all of our work. We will be forward-thinking in strategy, cohesive in our approach and proud of the achievements that support our vision and mission. 

Our Trust mission is to create a collaborative community of schools within a MAT structure that encourages and supports each school’s strengths and individuality. All schools will adopt the principles of the Trust Charter in their daily work. The Trust Charter is centred on the strong relationships that will ensure that our staff and students engage fully with each other and with their community and take the lead on delivering the Trust’s vision for education. 

Our Trust Charter describes on one page our modus operandi. We believe that strong, warm and caring relationships will be front and centre to facilitate the achievement of our objectives at MAT and school level.

There is an expectation of every employee of the Trust to embrace and to practice these principles. 

The School
