Job overview

Do you have what it takes to work in one of the top 10% of schools nationally?

If so, we want you!

We are seeking to appoint a well-motivated, resourceful person who will take on the responsibility of supervising students in a variety of situations, including when teachers are absent, facilitating learning and assessing their progress. 

A stone’s throw from the heart of the UK’s City of Culture for 2017, overlooking one of the 20th Century’s most impressive construction projects and located at the heart of the burgeoning UK centre for renewables, Baysgarth School is now in the most exciting phase of its history. In November 2016 we moved into our brand new state-of-the-art campus, which comprises Baysgarth School, the Humber Skills Centre and Baysgarth Sports Village. The school has risen quickly to become one of the top performing schools in the region, consistently producing good outcomes for our students. Our Year 7 cohort is full for new intake students and will be full for every year group from now on, which reflects the first class facilities we have on site as well as our fantastic students and staff who make the school a great place to learn.

Ofsted visited Baysgarth in October 2017 and concluded that we are a Good school which ‘has gone from strength to strength’ and is making ‘good progress on the journey to outstanding’. In terms of student achievement, Ofsted reported that ‘Overall progress was in the top 10% nationally … [and] current pupils are making strong progress in all year groups.’ The DfE have concluded that ‘there is no better performing similar school within 75 miles of Baysgarth’ and it is our mission to recruit the most talented staff to continue this progress. 

The Head Teacher has many years’ experience of transforming outcomes in a number of secondary schools and at the heart of his vision is creating and developing close-knit teams, focused on collaboration, mutual support and risk-taking. The successful candidate will need to demonstrate their commitment to the core principles and values of ambition, fairness, consistency, rigour and putting students first. 

The role of Learning Supervisor is key in providing high quality learning experiences at all times for our students.

The successful candidate will be responsible for:

  • Providing lesson cover for absent colleagues
  • Leading tutorial sessions including registration
  • Team teaching and providing support to teaching colleagues
  • Developing a bank of work for curriculum areas to use in supervised lessons and      activities
  • Providing 1-1 and small group academic support

The following qualifications and experience are essential:

  • GCSE Maths and English (or equivalent) Grade C or above
  • Experience of working with students within a secondary school
  • Experience of responding to and adjusting supervised activities to meet the needs of      students 
  • Using ICT to support students’ learning
  • Using a range of behaviour management strategies effectively

Baysgarth School is an 11-18 comprehensive with approximately 770 pupils on roll. The successful candidate will be expected to have pride, passion, positivity and vision and a desire to ensure the school has the highest possible reputation in the local community and beyond. 

Baysgarth School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to apply for enhanced disclosure from the DBS.

If you are inspired by the challenge and responsibility of this opportunity, we would like to hear from you. Further details and an application form can be downloaded from the school’s website or requested from the school. If you would like to discuss any aspect of the post, please feel free to contact Assistant Head Teacher, Sue White, at the school.

Baysgarth is part of the Riverview Family of Schools which comprises of one secondary school, a primary school, an alternative provision and a teacher training provider.  Find out more about us here!

Over the past decade, Baysgarth has undergone a complete transformation. In summer 2014 our results were the second worst in the Local Authority and were on a three-year downward trend. Since then we have made significant and sustained improvements; in 2015 we were named the most improved school in North Lincolnshire and in 2016 we were in the top five schools in the Humber region, in the top two schools in North Lincolnshire and among the top 10% of schools nationally!  In 2019 our results propelled us into the top 4% of the country for the progress we make with our students.  Our aim to provide the highest quality education for local young people is always our top priority and we continue to strive to improve our offer. 

This transformation has come about for a number of reasons. Firstly, we raised our expectations of what our students can achieve and insisted on high standards of behaviour and appearance. Secondly, we focused our staff on the quality of learning taking place in the classroom. We came up with our own Baysgarth Learning Model that underpins our lessons and focused on promoting collaborative learning and Kagan techniques in the classroom. Thirdly, we focused on changing the culture of the school to ensure that we promoted strong teams, encouraged creativity and risk-taking, and praised success.

As a result our classrooms have become vibrant and creative places that are enjoyable for staff and students. We have a very strong teaching staff in all departments which means that any new colleague will be well supported and have the opportunity to continue to grow and develop professionally. 

Baysgarth continues to be a Good school that is ‘making good progress on the journey to outstanding’ according to Ofsted, who visited most recently in January 2023.  Inspectors described the school to “have created an inclusive community” where “pupils are well cared for”, “have access to a wide range of enrichment opportunities”, “benefit from high-quality teaching”, along with having access to “a range of experiences that go beyond the national curriculum…experiences that they may not otherwise have had”.  Leadership and governance is strong, with “a clear vision” and “high expectations”.  Baysgarth is consistently one of the top performing schools in the Humber region and it is our mission to recruit the most talented staff to cement our excellent reputation.

Baysgarth is ideally placed at the meeting point of four authorities – North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire, Hull and East Riding. Half of our teaching staff live on the North Bank and travel across the Humber Bridge every day, all of them commenting on the speed and ease of travel with Baysgarth being within 15 minutes of all the West Hull villages and only 20 minutes from Hull city centre. With the area having lower property prices and higher average wages than surrounding areas we are an ideal spot to live and work.

We’re looking for brilliant people to help us build a truly great school, so if this is you we look forward to your application! Feel free to contact us if you want more information or to arrange for a visit.
