Trust Description

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

Supporting NQTs - The first year of teaching is a considerable significance in the professional development of a new teacher. Our induction process ensures that the appropriate guidance, support, training, expectations and observations are provided through a structured but flexible individualised programme.

"Newly qualified teachers are supported to a high standard. For example, they are provided with regular support from an experienced mentor, and frequent opportunities to observe best practice from other teachers within the trust. Clearly focused training schedules ensure that newly qualified teachers gain rapidly the necessary skills to develop into effective practitioners." Ofsted 2017 Lansdowne Primary School

Opportunities for career progression - Looking for more responsibility or greater professional development? The Stour Academy Trust can offer experienced teachers the opportunity to take on leadership responsibilities with rapid career progression in our successful and growing Trust.

Supported by a network of teachers, the Trusts collaborative model of working in Hubs allows Teachers access to resources, experience and opportunities that are just not available to those working in stand alone schools.

Our staffing structure places teachers on a clear career pathway, presenting numerous opportunities for further leadership or curriculum responsibilities.

Individualised support from Lead Practioners - The Stour Academy Trust utilises Lead Practioners to support its teachers to be outstanding.

As experienced coaches and mentors, Lead Practioners support individual teachers by planning lessons together, modelling teaching, sharing best practise in developmental marking, demonstrating the effective use of TA’s, observing teaching and providing constructive feedback in a positive environment.

Teachers working with our Lead Practioners have shown significant improvements in their teaching, leaving them feeling more confident and secure in their ability to deliver a positive impact on pupil learning.
