The Great North Wood Education Trust is a Multi Academy Trust (MAT), formed in May 2017 when Rosendale Primary School, The Elmgreen School and Rosendale, Cherry Tree, and Liz Atkins Children’s Centres came together to form the MAT. We have a shared commitment to inclusive, innovative and evidenced based practice in order to provide outstanding outcomes for all pupils from 0 to 19.
Both of the schools hold unique characteristics. Rosendale Primary School is a designated research school, one of only 32 such schools in the country and one of just four in London. Research schools are charged with supporting school leaders to bring evidence based practice into their classrooms and to encourage all education professionals to engage more deeply with research. The Elmgreen School was the first parent promoted school in Britain. Elmgreen also houses the Lambeth Hearing Impairment secondary resource base.
The Trust believes that the key to outstanding outcomes for children is to provide an excellent training and development programme for all staff. We all work together to share best practice, engage in research and participate in local, national and international networks.
The Trust is now looking to appoint two new trustees, one of whom should have financial expertise and preferably experience of sitting on an audit committee. The other might have worked in or been a manager of an educational institution or have experience of property and/ or facilities and estates management, HR purchasing and procurement. Ideally one or both should know the area well and have taken an active part in community life.
The responsibilities of the trustees, the skills and experience looked for and the time commitment involved are set out in the role description.
All Trustees must undertake an Enhanced Disclosure Application from the Disclosure and Barring Service
