Firstly, thank you for your interest in becoming part of the Armfield Academy staff team. This is a very exciting and unique opportunity in helping establish our brand new school; developing policy and procedures and putting these into operation so that we become “an Academy to be proud of”.

We opened in September 2018 on Lytham Road, South Shore with children joining the school in Reception and Year 7 only. This will then be repeated in the following years which enables the school to grow. Our nursery provision opened in January 2019.  Staffing numbers will increase year on year until the school is at full capacity.  The Academy, named after Jimmy Armfield, has the strapline “an Academy to be proud of”. It therefore relates very much to traditional British values and supports the core values of our Trust; pride, ambition, respect, resilience, integrity and excellence.

Armfield Academy is part of the Fylde Coast Academy Trust (FCAT) and is our second “all-through” school. FCAT is a Multi Academy Trust with 9 primary and secondary schools across the Fylde Coast and Lancashire with a proven track record of delivering rapid improvement in progress and outcomes. Armfield is now our 10th school. Our aim is to ensure first class learning opportunities for all young people. Learners are at the heart of what we do and their outcomes and successes are what drive us to be the “best we can be”!

We are seeking to appoint someone with appropriate experience for this role who is enthusiastic, committed and flexible, who works well on their own initiative, as well as part of a team. Within your application you should state clearly why you are the ideal candidate for this role stating examples of where you have been involved in the daily operation of a facility. The successful candidate will ensure our high standards of cleanliness around school and will have a good team working ethos in ensuring the highest standards for our pupils at all times.

The Job Description is attached with this advertisement.

Shortlisting to take place on or after the afternoon of Monday 10th August 2020.
