18th January & 19th January – Ofsted Monitoring Inspection noted;
Pupils’ behaviour has improved significantly since the previous inspection. You have introduced a behaviour policy and systems that are simple, clear and understood by pupils and their parents and staff. Pupils who spoke with inspectors said that they fully understand the behaviour policy and the school’s expectations. They were clear that pupils’ behaviour has improved as a result and that pupils’ inappropriate behaviour disrupts fewer lessons.
Having considered all the evidence, I am of the opinion that the school may appoint four newly qualified teachers, one each to the English, mathematics, science and humanities departments’.
Leaders expect teachers to have higher expectations and greater ambition for individual pupils and groups of pupils, for example disadvantaged pupils and the most able disadvantaged pupils. The vast majority of staff are rising to this challenge, and leaders are supporting the very few teachers who are struggling to make sure that pupils do well. The majority of staff, including those new to teaching, who spoke to inspectors, value the useful and focused training they receive that they say is improving their practice. They also recognise that pupils’ positive attitudes to learning and improved behaviour are enabling pupils to make better progress.
We are now looking to recruit a talented and enthusiastic Humanities teacher. You’ll be responsible for planning and delivering high quality lessons and achieving excellent results for your students, instilling in them a love for the subject and a desire to learn. We are looking for someone who will inspire and enthuse our students, delivering an outstanding and enriched curriculum.
The ideal candidate will:
· be a well-qualified teacher with a record of delivering good and outstanding lessons.
· have evidence of supporting students to make beyond expected progress
· have an excellent record of forging positive relationships with students to encourage great learning.
· have a resilient character and a strong personal drive
· understand the difference that a great education can make to pupils especially to those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Closing date: 12pm Wednesday 28th June 2017
Salary: MPS as stated above.
We value diversity and are committed to safeguarding and promoting child welfare. The successful candidate will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and any other relevant employment checks.
