TEACHER OF DANCE
Location: Charlton School (Part of the Learning Community Trust)
Contract type: Fixed term (Maternity Cover)
FTE: 1.0 (0.7 dance teacher /0.3 general cover)
Charlton is a popular 11-16 academy. We believe in progress through partnership with learning at the heart of all we do. We are a school who have a caring and disciplined environment, combining a degree of formality with good relationships between adults and students
Wellington is a busy market town, rapidly improving facilities and new housing being built nearby the school. From its central position, Wellington is easily reached by rail and has a large train station in the town. It is close to Shrewsbury and the famous Ironbridge, which is an area of local beauty and historical interest and one of the best in Shropshire!
To support us with our future development, we converted to an academy on 1st December 2018 and joined a Multi Academy Trust. We are now part of the Learning Community Trust. We believe this will be ideal for us, as we have similar vision and values. We are working in partnership towards a shared vision that places students’ learning, environments and local communities at the centre of our approach.
We are offering an exciting opportunity primarily for a dance teacher to join our Expressive Arts department, supporting the further development of an innovative curriculum for all, with purposeful, contextual learning and high expectations for students forming a major part of our passion for learning.
As a member of the Expressive Arts department and within teaching teams across the school, you will focus on ensuring the progress of every child by developing their dance skills, knowledge and understanding within an exciting and relevant curriculum.
Our Expressive Arts department has an excellent team spirit where collaboration, cooperation and the sharing of best practice are key, as is hard work within a supportive team. Learning is at the heart of all we do and we aim to provide students with outstanding opportunities, especially since we moved into our brand new, purpose-built school in 2016.
We are looking for a teacher who is enthusiastic about their subject, and can inspire the children to be passionate about their learning across the curriculum.
