About Kingfisher Schools Trust

Kingfisher is a new trust providing direction, support and challenge to seven schools in Suffolk and Norfolk. We have a mission to provide exceptional education for our pupils. We seek to have a deep understanding of our local communities but to have ambitions for young people equal to those of the very best schools and academy trusts anywhere in England.

At Kingfisher, we value our staff and aim to be an employer colleagues will recommend to others.

Our focus on Community is seen in our collaborative approach, with an open-door policy to leaders, constructive relationships with trade unions and annual surveys of our staff. We act on the feedback colleagues give to us.

77% of colleagues took part in our recent annual survey, a reflection of how well engaged our colleagues are.

The benefits we offer include:

  • Generous pension schemes (whether TPS or LGPS)
  • National pay scales and policies
  • Family friendly policies
  • Employee assistance scheme including access to counselling
  • Employee Benefits scheme (Vivup), including salary sacrifice schemes for cycle to work and car lease


The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check will be part of the pre-employment screening process for this role. An application form must be completed in full; CVs alone cannot be accepted.

Kingfisher Schools Trust is the name of our trust as of 1st January 2024. Where policies and other statutory documents refer to our previous name, Waveney Valley Academies Trust, these remain valid until they are reviewed next by the Board or are updated with our new name and logo.
