Key Stage 2 Specialist English Teacher and 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
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 English teachers to join our team. 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.
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 subject 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 English. We are more than happy to consider an NQT as well as more experienced candidates who are ready to take on middle leadership responsibility which could be as a Head of Year or as a foundation subject leader.
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.
