Science Teacher (Maternity Cover)
 Teachers’ Main Pay Range/Upper Pay Range

We have a vacancy for a Science Teacher to cover Maternity Leave, January to end July 2020. 

We will offer our successful candidate a school which:

  • Exists to serve its students and both support and challenge its staff
  • Focuses relentlessly on improving teaching and learning in order to raise standards
  • Enjoys positive relationships between staff and students
  • Knows every individual student well because of its size
  • Is on an upward trajectory and excited about its future

In March 2019, Ofsted graded the school as good once again.  The HMI Lead Inspector confirmed ‘The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.’  The report also described the Headteacher as ‘…an outward-looking, dynamic and thoughtful leader’ who has ‘instigated a number of far-reaching and successful changes over the last few years.’   We believe that our Ofsted report describes our school accurately and are pleased with the comments in it.

This is a successful Science department, consistently attaining results above the national average.  In 2018/19, the double 4 pass rate for combined science was 70%.  In triple Science, the 9-7 pass rates for Chemistry, Biology and Physics were 89%, 63% and 63% respectively. The department is fully resourced and this is a fantastic opportunity to join a dynamic, supportive and forward thinking team. 

Icknield Community College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment.  All staff must have a full DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Enhanced Certificate before commencing employment which the school will process on appointment.

Applications close on Monday 9 December 2019
