The Role

Are you our new Values in Practice Coordinator (PSHCE)?  The post is full time and permanent and is available from 1 September 2018.

The School

We are a successful and heavily oversubscribed 11-18 co-educational, Church of England, comprehensive school of over 1700 students, serving families from the whole of greater Bristol and beyond. We are located at the heart of the city and have a diverse student community with considerable parental support. Our diversity is a strength and something we celebrate. The Redcliffe Sixth Form Centre currently houses more than 600 students taken from our own school and from many other schools across the City.

The School is proud of its academic record, and 84% of grades were at grade C/Level 4 or above (up from 78%) last summer.  87% achieved a Level 4 or above (equivalent to a C) in English and Maths.  Sixth Form results are also outstanding with a 99% pass rate and 81% at grade C or above.  32% got A* and A grades (up 5%).  Most Sixth Form students continue on to Higher Education, including 9 taking up Oxbridge places this year.

Inspection Reports

The School was judged in January 2012 and again in April 2015 to be outstanding by Ofsted, and outstanding in our church school (SIAMS) inspection, in each and every category. Ofsted judged Leadership and Management, Behaviour and Safety of Pupils, Quality of Teaching, Achievement of Pupils, and Sixth Form Provision, all as Outstanding.

The Department

Values in Practice (ViP) is the name we give to our PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education) lessons. The aim is to help students think about how to use the values from our ‘Alive’ model to respond to the challenging decisions they will need to make in life. The ViP team will consist of 8 teachers (subject to completion of next year’s timetable), some of whom are citizenship trained and most are experienced in this area.

You will work in partnership with the Progression Coordinator (KS3 and KS4), and your line manager will be the Assistant Headteacher (Community). You will have administrative support.

What we're looking for

We are looking for an outstanding teacher who shares our vision for educating students as ‘whole people’. We want an innovative curriculum thinker who is able to coordinate a team and resources.

The successful candidate will need to offer a second teaching subject which can be accommodated within our timetabling. At this stage we can accommodate a wide range of subjects. Please make what you can offer clear on your Teaching Experience Sheet.
