Outwood Academy Portland places students at the centre of everything it does, with a focus on creating a culture of success, a positive climate for learning, and increased student attainment, achievement and social and emotional development.
Starting as soon as possible, we are seeking to appoint a committed individual to work as part of a dedicated team of staff. We seek colleagues who can effectively supervise students across the age range 11 to 18 covering lessons for absent colleagues. The post will offer the opportunity to work in a wide range of subject areas across the curriculum. The position is an ideal opportunity for someone wishing to pursue a career in education. The successful candidate will need to be flexible as they will be expected to cover at any of our Worksop sites.
Our staff are dedicated to securing the best possible outcomes for every student and are enormously proud of Ofsted’s Outstanding rating awarded in 2014. The hard work of both students and staff culminated in student progress placing the academy well within the top 5% of schools nationally and in 2016 88% of our students achieved A*-C grades in both English and Maths, helping place us in the top 10 schools nationally on pupil progress.
We are a warm and welcoming academy, where students are placed at the heart of everything. Behaviour across the academy is impeccable. There is an innovative focus on the development of learning and teaching, along with a wealth of exciting curriculum opportunities to ensure that students reach their full potential.
The Academy benefits from being part of the Outwood Family of Schools, which affords opportunities for staff to work and progress across several schools if desired. We will guarantee every member of staff CPD and a further comprehensive programme of professional development is provided through the teaching school at Outwood Grange Academy.
Visits to the Academy are encouraged and warmly welcomed.
