Application Form


In December 2018, Roseacre achieved the Inclusion Quality Mark and were invited to become a Centre of Excellence for Inclusion. This could not have happened without the skills, experience, competence and commitment of a very special team.  Due to the retirement of a long-standing member of our Safeguarding and Inclusion Team, Roseacre Primary Academy is looking to appoint a Safeguarding Officer who will contribute to, and expand upon, our existing inclusive practices.

Trustees, governors and staff are inordinately proud of Roseacre’s reputation, its standing in the community it serves and the children who attend; they know that it is a special place to work and to learn. We are looking to appoint someone who demonstrates a true desire to work at Roseacre and be part of this exceptional team.

At our Ofsted inspection in March 2018, Roseacre continued to be a ‘Good Provider’.

Our Academy offers:

  • A strong ethos, where the school values of: excellence, determination, respect, tolerance, courage and honesty, underpin all that we do.
  • Confident, polite, hard-working children who enjoy coming to school and have great attendance.
  • A nurturing environment that is supportive of children’s and adults’ mental health and wellbeing.
  • The opportunity to work in a large, friendly team where communication is high priority.
  • An established induction process and ongoing Professional Development that supports teachers’ development and progression.
