Role: Second in English
Salary: MPS/UPS + £4400
Start date: September 2018
Hours of work: Full time
Are you passionate about your subject? Do you want to teach A level? Do you want to teach in a small community school that knows each one of its children and their families? Do you want to be involved in shaping a new school and sixth form? Are you a future leader of English? If the answers to these questions are “yes” then you are the person we are looking for to join our school.
“We aim to know every one of our students well, providing an environment that allows them to achieve what they are truly capable of by promoting both academic progress and a ‘can do’ attitude.”
Our all-through Free School opened in September 2013; we are oversubscribed and experiencing rapid growth in both the Primary and Secondary phases. Our fantastic heritage site has been fully refurbished and provides a unique learning environment. Small year groups enable us to know every child well and personalise their learning. We are forward-thinking, with the freedom to shape our school curriculum in response to the needs of the local community and businesses and we are delighted that Ofsted judged us to be a Good school in April 2015.
This is a unique opportunity to share your best practice in English teaching with a highly ambitious learning team. We expect this post holder to become the future Director of English at our school.
We expect you to deliver consistently high quality teaching and we have a ‘no excuses’ culture in taking steps to ensure no child is left behind in their learning. We place value on literacy and oracy as they are key to supporting students succeed across the curriculum and in their future lives.
Most important is your attitude and approach. You will be:
· able to motivate students and inspire a love for your subject
· willingness to use your experience to engage and enthuse students about learning
· keen to use new technologies and develop a vision for learning in the 21st Century
· committed to securing outstanding outcomes for all students in your care
· willing to play an active part in building subject partnerships
As a growing school, we offer outstanding opportunities for development and further promotion. We work closely with the Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance and other professional development partners to ensure your development is a priority. As a member of staff, you will have access to our leisure facilities.
