Vacancies at SAND Academies Trust

SAND Academies Trust. The name SAND encompasses the core values of the Trust – Supporting Achievement and Nurturing Development.

1 October 2021


SAND Academies Trust was formed in June 2019 to enable and develop
partnerships working across a group of academies. Academy Trusts are created
by a number of academies working together. Academies are independent,
self-governing schools that are funded directly by the Government and not via
the Local Authority.

SAND Academies Trust now consists of five schools:-

Battledown Centre for Children & Families
Belmont School
Paternoster School
The Milestone School
Willow Primary Academy

Each school will maintain its own unique ethos, culture and identity that has
been established over many years to ensure the needs of pupils are met.
As a partnership we will achieve more together and therefore:
• Improve outcomes, opportunities and life chances for children and young
• Offer more / wider support for their families
• Share and develop staff expertise

We will continue working to grow our Academy Trust to include converting
schools who share our vision and aims and who wish to be part of a new and
exciting Trust that will respect the individual identity of each academy whilst
providing opportunities for sharing good practice and expertise to benefit our
children, young people and families.
SAND Academies Trust is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare
of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share the
same commitment. All positions are subject to an enhanced DBS check.
