Trust Description

Join a supportive and collaborative network of staff at The Stour Academy Trust.

The Stour Academy Trust recognises that our education system needs to quickly and more radically shift to close equity gaps and to better prepare our young people for the 21st century. We are transforming our schools from passive forms of learning focused on direct instruction and memorisation, by moving towards interactive methods that promote the critical and individual thinking needed in today’s innovation-driven economy.

Our pedagogical model combined with the intentional deployment of technology will help us deliver personalised learning in an enabling environment. Technology will accelerate our progress but will not be the driver of our vision.

We aim to nurture a community of learners that challenge thinking, where our staff are empowered to take risks and develop their practice to meet the needs of an evolving school system, which is not held back by traditional restrictions and ideologies.

By limiting routine or unnecessary tasks we allow professionals to focus on learning behaviours and interactions which will promote emotional intelligence and the development of children as life-long, curious learners.

There will be no barriers to achievement within our learning community and our teachers will build strong relationships that facilitate the learning of others. Collaboration will open doors, minds and possibilities and enable individuals to meet their personal goals. .

We are looking for people that:

•Recognise that our current education system needs to radically change to better prepare our young people for the 21st century

•Want to move away from passive forms of learning and move towards interactive teaching methods that promote critical and individual thinking

•Are able to take advantage of the latest technology to deliver personalised learning that is accessible for all children, irrespective of their language skills, reading ability or any other factors that may present learning challenges

•Want to work with other staff as a community of learners that challenge traditional thinking

•Want to develop their own practice to meet the needs of an evolving school system

•Want to develop children as life-long, curious learners

•Want to build strong relationships with children that facilitate their learning

•Want to teach in enabling environments that promote flexibility, collaboration and independence
