Key Stage 2 Specialist English Teacher/Middle Leader
An exciting opportunity to join a pioneering school in north London.
Ark John Keats Academy aims to provide pupils from Nursery to 6th Form with a highly effective and enjoyable education. Our approach is underpinned by our six pillars:
A Mastery Curriculum
High Quality Teaching
Raising Aspirations & Enrichment
Developing Education Leaders
This is an exciting stage in the academy’s development as we continue to grow towards full capacity. We currently have pupils from Nursery to Year 5 and Years 7 to 11.
The academy staff, pupils and parents are incredibly aligned, committed and passionate about our school. We have been graded as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted and pupils make rapid progress in our calm, purposeful and happy environment.
We are looking for outstanding teachers to join our primary team. In this role you will be responsible for delivering consistently engaging, challenging and exciting teaching and learning, thereby helping pupils to achieve the best academic results they can. It is a post that will require intelligence, vision, commitment and the consistent role modelling of best practice for staff and pupils.
We are very excited about the unique teaching model we are developing for our Key Stage 2 phase which came into effect in September 2016 for our founding Year 3 cohort. The model has been developed in line with our pillars and is aimed at providing pupils in the primary phase with high quality specialist subject teaching. Now we are looking to recruit more specialist teachers to join our team. Depending on your specialisms, the role will involve teaching all aspects of English in the mornings and then teaching at least one other subject in the afternoons, for example PE, art or music.
This post offers successful candidates the opportunity to play a leading role in developing our Key Stage 2 specialist provision and providing first class teaching for pupils. It is a wonderful opportunity to be a member of a school that is breaking the mould by giving pupils from relatively disadvantaged backgrounds a type and standard of education previously the preserve of the best fee-paying schools. It also enables our primary and secondary specialists to work together in creating a content-rich, cumulative and coherent curriculum across phases.
Our ideal candidate will be an outstanding teacher with a very strong interest in the relevant subject area. We are more than happy to consider an NQT as well as more experienced candidates who are ready to take on middle leadership responsibility.
We will expect you to work hard; show commitment at all times to our vision; lead by example and achieve our aims. In return you will work with a team that will provide vision and direction and great practical and moral support. You will work in an environment where your opinions are sought and welcomed and a culture in which staff feel appreciated and excited by the journey ahead of us.
Opportunities like this are few and far between in education and we would very much like to hear from you if you share our vision, values and enthusiasm. We are very happy to talk about the post informally if you require more information.
