Principal Upton Heath C of E Primary School

The Samara Trust is a multi-academy trust founded in March 2019 by Clutton C of E Primary School, Little Sutton C of E Primary School and Upton Heath Church of England Primary School. The Samara Trust brings together a variety of schools to work together, support each other and provide the best outcomes for young people. The Samara Trust is child focused, celebrates the individuality of its schools and emphasises collaboration and opportunities for schools, staff and pupils.

 We are now at a point of developing the leadership structure across The Samara Trust. We are seeking to appoint a principal for Upton Heath Church of England Primary School from January 2020. Upton Heath C of E Primary School is a two-form entry, co-educational primary school of just under 420 children with 58 staff serving a diverse community including children whose families serve in the armed forces. The school is proud to be an inclusive school. Upton Heath was judged as a good school in 2013 by Ofsted and SIAMS.

At The Samara Trust, you would have a chance to be part of a bigger family of schools working together. The Trust schools also benefit from working with schools within the Chester Diocesan Board of Education, ‘Upton for Inclusion’ Educational Improvement Partnership, Ignite Teaching School Alliance and Cheshire Learning and Teaching School Alliance. Supported by the trustees, we try and make the ever growing demands upon schools somewhat easier.
