General Description

St Thomas More Catholic School  Health and Social Care Department is a dynamic and enthusiastic department with a collaborative approach to teaching and learning. Our approach to our curriculum is underpinned by engaging our students in their understanding of the wider world by ensuring a varied, engaging and challenging curriculum  which supports all pupils in preparing for Key Stage 4 and beyond. Interleaved learning is at the core of our planning and how we can effectively develop thinking.

The department is committed to continually reviewing and updating units of learning and teaching and learning styles, in order to engage students and facilitate achievement. We adopt a range of strategies in the classroom to allow pupils to develop communication skills and become autonomous learners.

Alongside Health and Social Care, at Key Stage 4 and 5, the successful applicant would be expected to contribute towards the delivery of Key Stage 3 Food and Nutrition, and our Child Development qualifications.  We are very proud to be one of the few schools already involved in the delivery of the T Level in Education and Child Care, and we are planning to complement this with the offer of the T Level in Health from September 2021. It is an exciting time for the development of true vocational qualifications, and we are looking for someone who is proactive and shares our vision for the future development of the department. If you have a passion for this subject area and the drive to lead our students towards their potential then we would really welcome your application.
