If you are passionate about encouraging students of all abilities to attain the highest standards in reading and writing this opportunity with Heron Hall Academy is the role you are looking for. We are looking for a dedicated and talented Literacy Teacher to help us deliver an outstanding school that is recognised for producing students who can be successful in any social sphere.
Heron Hall has undergone an exciting £40m refurbishment project, giving us state of the art facilities, which are second to none in the borough. We have one of the biggest and most modern science ‘mega labs’ in the country, a large new purpose built sports hall and an all-weather outdoor 3G pitch is being built. We enjoy light teaching areas with our new building complementing the existing listed building which has been fully renovated to an exceptionally high standard. The most recent Ofsted inspection graded the school as ‘good’ in every category.
We offer all pupils, regardless of their abilities, a rounded education in all major subjects, but with special emphasis on English and literacy to equip them for their lives ahead in the workplace. That is where you come in.
Join us and you will provide support across the teaching community and key stages to raise standards of Literacy at Heron Hall. You will liaise with external educational networks to develop best practice in school as well as set up and manage sessions of sharing excellent practice. You will also use suitable classroom practice to deliver courses and create a pleasurable and stimulating learning environment for students. You will present subject content using a variety of teaching approaches, as well as set appropriate home and course work. We will look to you to motivate students and sustain their interest. Important too will be the ability to maintain an awareness of local and national contexts and changes affecting the subject.
You must possess a relevant degree and a recognised teaching qualification as well as be able to demonstrate knowledge of national initiatives being implemented in the subject. You will have experience of teaching and be comfortable planning, implementing and evaluating the subject curriculum including appropriate assessment methods. You must be able to work collaboratively within both the curriculum team and across other curriculum areas too. Good at meeting deadlines and building relationships you will possess strong organisational and classroom management skills also.
