What is it like working for the
Learning in Harmony Trust?
Senior Teacher @ Greenways Primary School
I love Greenways for our community feel – everyone is always welcoming and wants others to do well too. The school enables all staff and children to succeed in every way, and it has enabled me to develop my career beyond my expectations. My role allows me to work closely with a range of children and teachers, which allows me to further develop my skills and practices from many different viewpoints. This is further encouraged by the Trust through the support and challenge across different schools, and by the external partners who work with us on school improvement. I feel encouraged to comfortably progress without feeling too pressured and in an environment where I am happy to ask questions. The Trust has also allowed me to take part in the Evolve leadership course which opened a network of like-minded colleagues and changed my outlook on myself as a leader, leading me to apply for a more senior role. Additionally, with staff perks such as Perkbox, the Trust is a great organisation to work for.
Head of SEND @ Blenheim Primary School
I have been part of Blenheim for the past 18 years, and thanks to the energetic and enthusiastic children there is never a dull day. I feel very lucky to have a varied and evolving role that allows me to work with a range of our talented staff across the whole school and oversee the provision to many children. Within this nurturing environment, there is a strong culture of improvement for both staff and pupils and everyone is encouraged to push and challenge themselves on a daily basis to develop and grow – we are all very supported to expect to reach our full potential. Being part of the Trust has given me the opportunity to liaise with other schools to extend my thinking. It also gives me an opportunity to question what I am doing within the school and working alongside others who are doing similar roles allows us to ensure our practice is good. The trust-wide inclusion team meetings and the support from JFK Special school have been very beneficial to me as a professional and to Blenheim as an inclusive school.
