Welcome to the Diocese of St Albans Multi-Academy Trust recruitment page. We are so pleased that you are interested in working with us and joining our team. We are a growing family of schools, currently with 12 and a mixture of primary and secondary phases, spread across three Local Authority regions of Hertfordshire, Central Bedfordshire and Bedfordshire Borough.
Our Trust has a clear mission at its core, ensuring that all pupils are enabled to flourish, rooted in God’s Love - academically, socially, spiritually, physically and mentally. This is central to our work, and rooted in our Christian foundation (John 10 v 10). Our commitment to mutual flourishing within the school community is built upon our shared belief in Church of England principles. In our Trust, just as in the wider Church of England community, ‘flourish’ refers to prospering, thriving and growing – not shrinking out and dying. It means prayerfully encouraging all within our schools so that they might prove fruitful, successful and contented in the longer term. We seek to provide space generously for all to flourish in life and all of its structures. Equal treatment for all pupils, staff and the wider community is a core part of enabling this long term, holistic flourishing. Our academies are inclusive, welcoming those from all and no faiths, from all abilities and backgrounds.
We have a clear vision about creating successful schools for the benefit of their communities. We expect any school in the Trust to continuously improve, and those graded by OFSTED as RI/Serious Weaknesses/Special Measures to make rapid progress and be able to secure an OFSTED grading of at least “Good” within 3 years post-conversion. All schools provide rich and diverse curricula which evolve to meet the needs of their children and local communities, as well as delivering educational excellence to enable them to continue to flourish in later life.
The way we work and deliver against our mission is critical to our Trust. We have shared, agreed values of:
Hope; Nurture; Equality; Respect; Collaboration
The Trust's vision is underpinned by a Christian values framework which is adopted by all schools. It provides clear expectations for all Trust employees on how we wish our values to impact on all areas of school life. It draws on, and is informed by, the National Church of England Vision for Education and the Diocesan Board of Education Vision.
Each school within the Trust has a personalised vision for education, developed locally to reflect the individual character and needs of the school community. This vision is underpinned by the Trust’s wider vision, and agreed with the Trust, but it is owned and driven by the headteacher and their LGB.
There are many advantages of being a part of our Trust including increased career development prospects and we offer all employees excellent professional development opportunities according to individual need. We are committed to learning from others and best practice is shared, thereby enabling all employees to work more effectively, for the benefit of the children in our schools. We value the contribution our employees make to the on-going success of our schools and we aim to support individuals in achieving a healthy work-life balance.
If you are looking for a meaningful and rewarding role and would like to make a difference, we look forward to hearing from you. We encourage suitably qualified applicants from all backgrounds to apply to join us to help us meet our aspirations of being a fully inclusive workplace where diversity is celebrated.
The Diocese of St Albans Multi-Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all employees and volunteers to share this commitment. An offer of employment will be subject to a number of pre-employment checks including verification of identity, Right to Work in the UK, receipt of written references that are satisfactory to us, medical clearance and a successful Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
