We seek to appoint an exciting an inspirational tutor, with ambition to achieve the very best possible outcomes for educationally disadvantaged students. This is an exciting opportunity to teach in a school where staff are supported and encouraged to thrive and develop. Blatchington Mill School is a superb place to work.
We are an ambitious school and we believe that every child can succeed. Some students face more barriers in their learning, and receive additional funding in order to ensure they make good progress and learn securely. Too often this money is spent on tutoring of a low standard, or via agencies, where the quality of provision is variable and the agency fee means the resource isn’t targeted to the student in need. We wish to ensure this resource is used to employ a tutor with high standards who will ensure students thrive. If this challenge sounds like one you would relish, then please apply to join us in creating an ‘ethic of excellence’ for all our students.
Blatchington Mill is a ‘Good’ school, with ‘Outstanding’ behaviour and safety. We achieve positive value-added in our exam results, stretch our most able, and support our most vulnerable. We innovate in the classroom, placing huge value on evidence-informed professional development. We work in partnership with schools locally and nationally and believe in collaboration and school-led improvement. We are also a designated Stonewall Training School.
Our most recent reviews of the school have commented that:
“The energy, enthusiasm and personal interest shown by leaders are highly motivational, creating a culture of initiative, innovation and success.”
“Staff work collaboratively to learn from each other, strong teams are built and so teachers guide and support each other. This has developed a culture in which staff are confident and eager to improve; where they view challenges positively.”
“There is a high level of mutual respect and trust between teachers and students and between students themselves; contributing successfully to students’ moral and social development. It is rare to see students not engaged with their learning.”
“Students are well behaved, courteous and polite. They show positive attitudes to the teacher, their learning and each other. This makes a strong contribution to the friendly and welcoming atmosphere that pervades the school.”
“The school is very inclusive, and students show respect and consideration for one another in their behaviour in classrooms and around the school.”
