Subject Leader for Religious Education
TLR 2.2 (£4531)
We are looking for an excellent Subject Leader for Religious Education to lead the subject and to help to move the school on to the next stage in its development.
As a Church of England High School, RE occupies a central role in our curriculum, allowing students to engage with and grow in their understanding of the Christian faith, as well as of the other faiths which our students will encounter in modern Britain. Academic standards are good, and the department’s work was praised in our last SIAMS inspection in March 2017.
Our new Subject Leader for RE will be a committed Christian who is able to maintain and develop RE as an academic subject, inspiring staff and students within the department. S/he will also have an important role to play in further developing our Christian ethos, for example in supporting the work of our Chaplain / Christian Youth Worker, participating in the worshipping life of the school and enhancing links beyond the school to build students’ understanding of different traditions within the Christian faith and of other faiths.
RE is part of the Humanities Faculty, and the new Subject Leader can count on excellent support from our Director of Humanities and Lead Practitioner, David Eccles, as well as from colleagues across the faculty and the school.
Saint Aidan's has an excellent reputation in the local community and across the Wyre and Fylde coast.
