About Foley Park Primary Academy
Foley Park Primary Academy is a one form primary school; between Stourport and Kidderminster with its history dating back to 1894. Foley Park Primary Academy is a popular, friendly school where everyone feels safe, secure and valued. We want our pupils to explore and develop their talents and abilities within and beyond the classroom. We aim to prepare them well for the transition to secondary education and for life as citizens in an ever changing world.
We expect children to give their best in everything they do; we encourage them to develop positive, caring attitudes towards themselves, each other and their wider community
We are now seeking a new Headteacher who must ensure the school continues to move forwards. The successful candidate will have an exciting opportunity to lead the school in the next stage of its development. We welcome applications from serving Headteachers and Deputy Heads.
Our aim is "To become the school most know across Kidderminster that embraces academic excellence, creates a love of lifelong learning and nurtures family."
We believe in:
A place to feel safe, secure, happy and valued. A community working together as a team to promote skills for lifelong learning; making a difference to all. A place where children achieve through an exciting, inclusive, challenging and skills based curriculum. A school where respect is at the heart of what we say and do.
We believe that Victoria Academies should be values-driven where leadership at all levels has a strong moral purpose. Taking inspiration from the Latin word Fides (‘To Trust’) we believe in five simple core values that underpin all that we do:
Focus on family
Insist on excellence
Do good as you go
About the Trust
As the Headteacher of Foley Park Primary Academy, you will be part of Victoria Academies Trust. Victoria Academies Trust is an established multi-academy trust (MAT) in the West Midlands that consists of 9 local schools that all share a passion for excellence, innovation and social change.
As a values-led trust, our purpose is to make all our people become the best they can be. This is our reason for being and is why we created the MAT in 2014. Everything that we do is designed to serve the needs of our young people and their communities through social change. We do this by creating ‘standout’ schools that have flipped the concept of ‘outstanding’ and re-defined excellence in a way that is purposeful, wholesome and empowering to our communities.
Quite simply, we want our family of schools to become the best in the world.
