Thank you for your interest in the role of Head of RE at Weavers Academy.

Working in partnership, Weavers Academy and the Trust have made much progress in recent years.

Underpinning our vision - ‘striving for success by focusing on learning’ – the school has pursued a rigorous and continuous programme of educational improvement.  As a result, curriculum planning, teaching strategies and assessment techniques have advanced and driven student progress.  Work that the school has done to further improve behaviour and attendance has resulted in students becoming increasingly ambitious for their futures.

Our unique Knowledge Connected approach teaches students to analyse and understand their curriculum of study through the application of six key concepts, encouraging them to identify and solve problems in practical and creative ways that give them a sense that they can have an impact on the world around them.

We were delighted to have been awarded a ‘good’ judgement from Ofsted in May 2017.  However, we are not complacent and want to achieve much more for our students and to build on the school’s strengths.  We seek to appoint an ambitious, creative, committed and energetic colleague to be a key contributor to the achievement of this goal.

To ensure that our staff remain at the leading edge of educational thinking and practice we offer a wide range of professional development opportunities. In addition, in joining a growing group of schools, you will have the opportunity to have an impact on how the wider network develops through school-to-school support.
