The Rawlett School is a successful and popular 11-16 community school and in recent years we have become the school of choice in our local community. We have maintained our ‘good’ judgement by Ofsted in 2017 and in 2016 we celebrated sustained results.  Our P8 score was one of the top in Staffordshire and the highest locally.  We are proud of our broad and balanced GCSE based curriculum.

Our students are at the heart of all that we do, and we place great importance on not only making sure that they achieve academic success, but also on developing their social skills and emotional maturity.  In recent years 100% of pupils have moved into education, employment or training.

We are:

  • A ‘Good’ school in every area by Ofsted (June 2013 and April 2017).  Outstanding features were noted.
  • A school with a Positive Progress 8 outcome because our students exceed expectations.
  • A leading school in the Midlands hub of AET schools with a real focus on making sure all our staff develop professionally.
  • A school where British values are at the heart of our curriculum – so that all our students leave school knowing how to conduct themselves in the wider world.

We are looking for a Teacher of RE who really cares about helping our students succeed and is willing to support the development of the RE department. You will be joining a team who:

  • put students first – We aim to inspire all our learners through innovative teaching 
  • supports CPD and career development – We support and challenge each other’s teaching through frequent CPD, coaching and mentoring for all new staff
  • value team spirit and positive working relationships – We support each other through team-teaching and collaborative planning, fostering a positive working environment. 

We are looking for a Teacher of RE who:

  • Is passionate and has a creative and flexible approach to teaching both at KS3 and KS4
  • Will model best practice teaching and learning across the department and support the development of quality teaching in the department.  
  • Will support, challenge and engage a diverse cohort of students, enriching their learning experience, maximising their potential and raising attainment

Join our team and build a wonderful career in a school you are passionate about with students you love to help learn.
