Head of Performing Arts and Second in Foundation Faculty
Teachers Pay Scale plus TLR £7,853
Performing Arts at The Queen Katherine school is a core component of our curriculum offer. At a time when schools are reducing the opportunities for students to develop their creativity and ability to express themselves, we have protected and invested in Dance, Drama and Music. Our facilities are exceptional with a purpose-built music suite with many practice rooms, a dance studio and two bespoke drama studios.
We seek to appoint a creative and dynamic individual to lead our Performing Arts Department and assist the Head of Foundation Faculty.
The successful applicant will be responsible for maintaining and developing the high profile that Performing Arts currently enjoys within school and the local community. This role also involves responsibility for assisting the Head of Foundation Faculty in monitoring and improving the quality of teaching and learning, assessment and feedback.
Education to degree level with QTS status is essential, as is recent experience of leading, or assisting with leading a department. This job requires an up to date knowledge and understanding of the curriculum and assessment, reporting and recording processes relating to performing arts, plus a clear understanding of the elements of outstanding teaching and learning.
This is a fantastic opportunity to lead a department dedicated to supporting students to realise their creative potential in performing arts. If you have what it takes we would love to hear from you.
The school is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to undertake an enhanced disclosure via the Disclosure & Barring Services (DBS).
