Required for January 2020
United Learning Salary Scale Applies – up to £41,528 depending on experience plus TLR 1a (£8066)
This is a rare opportunity as a Deputy Leader of English in a large department, leading on improving the quality of teaching and learning that impacts positively on student outcomes.
Do you love inspiring young people to recognise the real value of English to their lives now, and for the future?
Are you looking for a post that offers you real input and opportunity into where your career goes next?
Are you looking for a school where you’ll have the opportunity to develop and flourish in your own practice and directly impact on the practice of others?
We want to offer you the opportunity to “grow your own” career move as we look to strengthen our English team with an experienced, dedicated and passionate teacher.
We’d like you to have a proven record of excellence in your own teaching, indicative of creative, challenging and engaging teaching (using Rosenshine’s principles of direct instruction as desirable) that gets the very best progress from students. In addition, you need to be ready to lead and develop others, using a range of strategies that help to grow and sustain excellence in others’ teaching.
We believe that every child has the right to an education and that all children deserve to have their personalities, talents and skills developed to the full. We’re a Rights Respecting ‘Gold’ School, one of only 12 in England. The positive relationships and atmosphere this creates at The Regis permeate through daily school life, is described in our most recent inspection as the ‘heartbeat’ of the school. It is what focuses us all on why we went into teaching.
We offer staff the opportunity to work in a school that has a robust behaviour and rewards policy that enables ‘trouble free’ teaching, and being part of a large team on an exciting journey from good to outstanding. As a school and through the academy trust we offer excellent CPD and progression opportunities, enhanced salaries compared to national, and many other rewards such as childcare discounts in our nursey, half price gym membership and car leasing schemes to name a few.
We are a big school. About 1600 students and nearly 200 staff. You would be joining a large team of English staff, supported by a HLTA and a TA. With a suite of modern teaching rooms, an intervention room, our own team room and great resources, English are well equipped to contribute to the school’s ambition to offer an outstanding education to the students we serve.
We are looking for:
• QTS (or equivalent) and a relevant undergraduate degree
• An enthusiasm for education and desire to make a real difference to the lives of children
• Strong student outcomes at GCSE through effective teaching pedagogy
• The ability to teach English to A-Level (desirable)
• Leadership or coaching experience focusing on improving teaching (desirable)
There is an open invite for you to come and see us because we appreciate that, in teaching, moving to a new school is a significant decision and you may have questions to ask prior to applying. We are convinced our young people will sell this opportunity better than anything you can read on a website, so we encourage you to come and meet us all. Mike Garlick (Principal) is happy to discuss the post and the school with you either in person or by phone. Our recruiter, Richard, is happy to arrange this for you. firstname.lastname@example.org / 01273 729465.
