School, a small, friendly secondary school that lies at the heart of its community.
Students at Carter enjoy coming to school and want to do well. This ethos has been accomplished through a shared belief, by both staff and students, in high expectations, positive relationships, and enthusiasm in teaching and learning. Here at Carter, we believe that all students deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential, regardless of their background. Through constant support and challenge, we achieve this aim.
People often say, after their first visit to Carter Community School, how distinctive the school is, how pioneering we are and yet also how our care and compassion clearly permeates through everything we do. Imagine then, how transformative that environment is for the children who study and grow into adults here.
This is an exciting time to join Carter Community School. You will have the opportunity to work with a staff team that is supportive, friendly and dedicated to providing the best for our students. Alongside this, it is projected that the school will double in size over the next five years, meaning that future opportunities will be presented for staff and students. If you share our ambition of providing the very best teaching and learning and you are seeking an exciting, challenging and rewarding career, we would encourage you to apply for this role.
We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated, well-qualified teacher of Science to join our growing Science department. The candidate will work closely with the Head of Science and other science teachers to deliver a curriculum built on ‘bringing out the best in everyone’.
In particular, candidates should:
- Show the ability to be a and/or become an excellent classroom practitioner
- Have high expectations of students in terms of learning, achievement and behaviour
- Have enthusiasm for developing innovative and creative approaches to learning, teaching and student participation
- Have a sound subject knowledge which they can utilise to challenge all students
- Have a clear understanding of the latest curriculum and pedagogical developments in Science
- Have an ability to engage and motivate students
- Have a commitment to support our enrichment programme by facilitating co-curricular clubs
We would warmly welcome applications from NQT's and experienced teachers.
In return we are offering a highly attractive salary, along with the benefits of being part of United Learning, opportunities to share good practice and collaborate with colleagues across every phase of education.
As part of a cluster you will also benefit from being able to work closely with colleagues across five United Learning secondary academies in Bournemouth and Poole, including exciting opportunities to teach A Level at the United Sixth Form campus in Bournemouth (if desired) and become a Specialist Leader of Education (SLE) or Lead Practitioner.
Carter Community School is part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.
Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.
As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
