This is an incredible opportunity for an outstanding teacher who would like to lead East Crompton St. George’s into the next stage of its development. The school was judged by Ofsted in March 2013 to be ‘good’, and received an ‘outstanding’ judgement in the SIAMS inspection of December 2016.
The role will suit an inspirational Deputy or Assistant Headtecher, or a Headteacher who is looking for a new challenge - to take a school onwards and upwards to realise its full potential, with the full support of a leading, well-regarded, local Multi-Academy Trust.
Above all, we are looking for someone who knows what quality teaching looks like in the primary context and is committed to the interests and future of the children in their care.

We are a school in a lovely setting, recently expanded to two-form entry, with all the opportunities that will bring. The building programme is complete and the school is an attractive environment for teaching."
"We have a strong ethos and a warm, nurturing environment for children."
"New houses are being built at a rapid rate in the area. There is every opportunity now for the school to expand and grow."
"The school is working with the Cranmer Education Trust to improve pupil outcomes and progress. New tracking systems are being embedded, pedagogy is being developed, and leadership capacity is being improved. Progress to date has been promising.
The new Headteacher will be in the happy situation of taking over the leadership of a school that is on the up, in a Trust offering its full support, amd that has a realistic understanding of the current position."
St George’s is a Church of England converter academy which joined the Cranmer Education Trust (CET) in September 2015.. In an area of current housebuilding, the school has been expanded to two-form entry,
Our OfSTED report is currently Grade 2 'Good', but we believe that this does not necessarily reflect current pupil outcomes and progress. The goal must be to re-consolidate the school as good before progressing through to OfSTED 'Outstanding'.
We have prepared a comprehensive information pack which includes a letter from the Trust, a Job Description, a Person Specification, the Application Form, and other documents with the information you'll need.
"All pupils feel accepted, loved and value.."
SIAMS Report 2016
"Pupils understand that they have a right to the friendship of others and know that in turn they should ensure that no one is left without friends. Parents feel welcome in the school and talk of the support given by the school as being above and beyond what might be expected of them. They talk of the time staff give to listening to concerns or worries and of the care taken to resolve any areas of concern. Pupils are respectful of difference and are excited to learn from their peers of other cultures and faiths."

The School is located to the north of Oldham in the area known locally as Shaw, on the fringe of beautiful Pennine towns and countryside, but still within Greater Manchester and its many cosmopolitan towns and transport links into the city.
The School is commutable from all of the main towns in the region including Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Bury and Bolton, and further afield from Merseyside, Lancashire, Cheshire, North West Derbyshire and South West Yorkshire.
The School is near to the culture and bustle of city life, but lies close to some of the North West's finest countryside.
