Job overview

 Mayfield is a very successful and heavily oversubscribed school in the north of Portsmouth City. We are one of the first state, single-site, ‘all through’ schools in the country. We operate an “Outstanding” Pre-School and Nursery on site with reduced fees and preferential access for Mayfield staff. We have been successful in our bid to receive ‘priority school building’ funding which will result in the construction of a £20+ million, ‘state of the art’ new build on the current school site which is due to open in summer 2020. In September 2016, OfSTED conducted a section 5 inspection and found all areas to be ‘good’ and in summer 2017 the school secured it’s best ever results across all key stages. All staff members have the opportunity to work across all sections of the school depending on their interest, skills and experience. During this period of growth, we have a number of vacancies in all sections and truly believe “our only limitation is our ambition”.

School Ethos

Supporting and actively promoting the ethos of the school is the principle role of EVERY member of staff.
ALL members of our community are expected to work hard, be disciplined and show others respect.
Our ethos is summarised in our mission statement “Your only limitation is your ambition”.
In summary, we expect everyone to;

1. Be on time, well presented and properly equipped.
2. Show good manners and consider themselves as role models.
3. Challenge behaviours which fall short of our high expectations.

ALL staff should recognise that teaching goes on both inside and outside of lesson time,
and that throughout their working day staff should actively find opportunities to reinforce the schools ethos with students,
whether they are students you teach or not.

To this end ALL staff are encouraged to;

1. Greet students in corridors frequently, encouraging respectful responses from students.
2. Politely ask students to pick up litter.
3. Comment on “good behaviours” e.g. “You look very smart, well done”
4. Actively take an interest in a student who looks injured or in some other way distressed.
5. Ask students to stand up right when they talk to you and encourage eye contact.

Staff should note that duties are a particularly useful way of reinforcing the school’s ethos. Therefore, staff undertaking a duty are encouraged to actively engage with students, not “guard space”; whilst maintaining high levels of vigilance.

Please note that you are wholly responsible for fact checking in respect of the information provided by schools. Please also check for the latest visa and work permit requirements that may apply.
