The governors seek to appoint an outstanding practitioner to join this highly motivated and hardworking department as Lead Practitioner.  

St Matthew’s RC High School is seeking to appoint an outstanding practitioner to assist in raising standards in Teaching and Learning in the English department. This is a new role and has arisen due to the expansion of the current management structure within English after the recent appointment of our Director of Learning. Working as the Lead Practitioner – English, you will be able to quickly ascertain strengths and areas for development, in teaching and learning, across the department and be equipped to lead and support other members of staff to enable them to grow as practitioners. You will also be an outstanding practitioner who favours pedagogical innovation and takes meticulous risks, within the classroom, to ensure rapid progress for students. Although this role is primarily to lead on aspects of Teaching and Learning improvement, there will also be an opportunity for successful candidates to work alongside the Director of Learning in other key aspects of departmental leadership such as: data management; intervention coordination; quality assurance and lesson observations to provide the successful candidate with the pragmatic experience required for departmental leadership.

If you are intrigued by the prospect of the role and would excel within a thriving environment such as St. Matthew’s RC High School, please do not hesitate to contact Mr M Hewitt, Director of Learning, to discuss the role in more specific detail.

St Matthew’s RC High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  This post is subject to Enhanced Disclosure procedures.
