The Cooperative Academy of Leeds is a popular and genuinely comprehensive 11-18 school located just outside the
city centre of Leeds, with easy access from major motorways and good transport links. The Academy is part of the Cooperative Academies Trust, which currently comprises seven secondary Academies in Leeds, Manchester, Oldham and Stoke-on-Trent and five primary Academies based in Leeds, although there are plans for significant expansion across both phases in the coming years.

Since our last Ofsted inspection, when the Academy was judged to Require Improvement, we have made significant advances in the quality of teaching and learning and the progress of our students is rapidly improving. We are fully committed to working towards our ambition of becoming a Good and then Outstanding Academy and wish to welcome an inspiring and driven colleague who will share this goal. Our most recent monitoring visit determined that the academy is taking “effective action” towards being good in the next full inspection.

We are seeking to recruit an additional Attendance Improvement Officer. This is a key role in providing liaison between home and the Academy. The successful candidate will be working as part of a team under the direction of a Vice Principal. We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who has the ability to forge excellent relationships with families and also has a meticulous approach to record keeping. A clean and full driving licence is an essential requirement for the post.

You can expect:

Outstanding professional support

  • Opportunities for career development
  • An Academy with a burgeoning reputation for improvement
  • The support of a forward-looking and values-driven Academies Trust
  • A vibrant and dynamic student body which deserves the very best in teaching and support

The successful candidate will be joining us at our most exciting time and will play a substantial role in building on our vision for continued future success. An enhanced DBS disclosure will be required for this position. A conviction may not exclude candidates from appointment but will be considered as part of the recruitment process. The Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Further details and application forms can be found on the Academy’s website or by contacting Dianne Singleton at This is also the email address to which completed applications should be submitted.
