Leycroft Academy, based at Tile Cross, Birmingham is an inclusive and vibrant specialist primary school with over 170 pupils on roll. The children all have a diagnosis on the Autism Spectrum. The school has high standards of teaching and learning and is committed to ensuring that all pupils achieve their full potential.
The school became Leycroft Academy in September 2021, following a de-amalgamation from Brays School, which previously operated over two sites. A school has operated on the Tile Cross site in the current guise since February 2015.
This is an exciting time for the school, which has benefitted from significant investment in the last year with further work planned to improve the indoor and outdoor learning spaces. Within the school staff, we are dynamically developing our leadership structure and responsibilities and the introduction of this role is part of that development. You will join our journey of improvement to play a key part in transforming the lives of our pupils.
We are looking for highly effective, creative and inspirational classroom practitioners with the dedication, vision and drive to support the leadership of a Curriculum area within our structure which includes:
- The World Around Me and Technology (Scientific Technologies, Understanding the World and Creative Arts)
- Numeracy & problem solving
- Literacy (Reading, Writing) and Communication
- Personal Development and the Wellbeing Curriculum (Emotional and Physical)
Your professional development will also be a key priority and you will have the support of a network of highly skilled and experienced senior leaders alongside the opportunities that will inevitably present themselves from being part of a developing trust.
Leycroft is part of Forward Education Trust (FET), an established and developing MAT of 6 special schools in Birmingham and Sandwell with plans for future expansion including a new school in Solihull. The trust is committed to ensuring the schools develop individual personalities, recognising their own particular characteristics and celebrating the many good things that happen day-to-day.
The successful applicant will be committed to the Trust’s core values and ethos and ensure the children who we educate are provided with education and opportunities that they deserve, whilst also supporting our wider staff to do the best they can in their roles.
