Easthampstead Park Community SchoolBracknell Forest

Applications from NQTs and more experienced teachers welcome

We are seeking to appoint a Teacher of DT Food, who is passionate about sharing their love for food and nutrition with the students that they teach. The successful candidate will teach DT Food and Hospitality and Catering in KS3 and KS4. Applications are welcomed from both NQTs and more experienced teachers. In return for your hard work and dedication we offer students who are keen to learn, excellent DT Food facilities and a department that is housed in purpose-built accommodation and is very well resourced.

Easthampstead Park Community School is a vibrant, cutting edge learning environment. Our school culture marries unswervingly high academic expectations with excellent pastoral care and support. The concept of community is at the very heart of our vision; we believe in a three-way partnership between parents, teachers and students, and are proud of our setting and the local community. Teaching and learning are at the very heart of our school and drives everything we do. An action-research based approach to teaching and learning has been central to our improvement journey in recent years, and we wholeheartedly believe in investing in staff's continued professional development in the same way that we expect our teachers to passionately invest in our students.

This is a very exciting time to join us. In recent years, we have made excellent progress, and at our last OFSTED inspection (June 2016), we were rated as ‘good’ in all areas.

“Since her appointment, the Headteacher has focused on making sure that all pupils feel safe, happy and confident so that they learn well. This did not happen overnight but it is now apparent in pupils’ much-improved behaviour and their positive response to the good teaching they receive.”

We aspire to be rated ‘outstanding’, driven by a core belief that all of our students deserve nothing but the best possible teaching and support in order to be happy, healthy and successful. We aim to deliver the best quality teaching and learning in a school where staff and students have respect for, and pride in themselves, their school and their community.

If you feel you have the necessary skills, mind-set and determination to join us on our journey towards ‘outstanding,’ we would very much like to hear from you.

We offer a comprehensive package of benefits to all teaching staff, including access to Perkbox which provides teaching staff with money off in various High Street stores and with a wide range of online retailers.

Applications will be considered upon receipt, if you wish to apply you are advised to do so at the earliest possible time.

Closing date: 9am, Monday 1 February 2021
