Welcome

Thank you for your interest in this exciting position at Yewdale Primary School.

It’s important that whoever takes on this role shares the absolute commitment to pupils that's at the heart of Cumbria Education Trust. We continually challenge ourselves to ensure that we are doing the very best we can by every pupil in our schools. That means a relentless pursuit of improvement, a real appetite for innovation and a commitment to being on the front foot in terms of best practice in education.

As a member of the Trust’s leadership team, the successful candidate will find a highly collaborative working environment, where school leaders draw on one another’s expertise, and where constructive challenge is welcomed. It’s a genuine opportunity to contribute across CET, as well as making a direct difference to individual schools. And as a relatively recent arrival to the Trust (with just under a year in post) I am well placed to assure you that what you see really is what you get: high-quality colleagues, a clear professional vision and the support you need to help you achieve it.

The Trust has engaged Navigate NDC to support the recruitment of this key role. I encourage you to contact them to find out more about the opportunity and to support you in making the best application possible. David Gooda and Raymond Kelly can be contacted on 01625 800862.

I look forward to receiving your application.

I am very proud of what the Trust has achieved during our first five years. We continue to step forward to support schools in challenging contexts and every one of our academies is in a better place today than when they first joined CET. We want to build on the good work to date, increase the momentum of improvement, and establish even closer relationships with our schools’ communities. It’s an opportunity to firmly establish your credentials in school leadership; and as our Trust evolves and grows you can be certain of continued professional challenge, support and development.
