For the Wardle Trust to produce good results it is important to us that we recruit and retain the best staff. As a Trust we are our own employer, subscribing to all local and national terms and conditions of employment for all staff. As a consequence, the school employs its own HR Manager; the school governors are committed to paying the ‘living wage’ as a minimum for associate staff; training and continued professional development are at the centre of our staff appraisal systems.

  • Exclusive after-school use of a new fitness gym
  • Assistance with personal and legal issues
  • Family orientated leave of absence policy
  • Social Events
  • Free Flu jabs
  • Great opportunities for musicians

Staff have the benefit of exclusive after-school use to a new fitness gym, Social events, free flu jabs, assistance with personal and legal issues are examples of the benefits available to support colleagues. The Trust’s leave of absence policy is ‘family orientated’ recognising the importance to staff with their own children to attend their children’s special events such as final primary school assemblies, or graduation days. For musicians, there are many opportunities both to play and to support musical events.

Opportunities and Development
The Trust likes to encourage all staff to consider development opportunities.
The Trust is welcoming of all new staff with its induction processes constantly under review. Staff turnover is low. As we continue to grow, however, employment opportunities continue to appear. The Trust likes to encourage all staff to consider development opportunities. For example, over the last few years, several associate colleagues have been supported to become both teachers and heads of department. Senior staff have been supported to become deputy headteachers, and in two cases, headteachers, thereby creating additional employment openings within the school.

Extended Support Network

We work closely with external groups such as the Rochdale Education and Learning (REAL) Trust, the Northern Alliance training network, Great – Teaching Recruitment and the Rochdale Pioneers Trust to support and meet the training needs of all colleagues regardless of role.
