Teacher of English
Main Scale MPS/UPS
Closing Date: Tuesday 16th October 9am
Interview Date: Thursday 18th October
Start Date: January 2019
We are looking for an enthusiastic and passionate Teacher of English, who is keen to join a close knit team, who actively support each other to ensure that we all thrive, staff and students alike.
Burscough Priory Academy is undergoing a transformation, having joined Endeavour Learning Trust on September 1st 2018. Already we have found Burscough Priory students to be hard working, willing and enthusiastic and keen to work with their teachers and support staff to get the very best out of their school days. In addition the team of staff currently in place are optimistic and completely committed to the rapid and sustainable improvements currently taking place, firmly rooted in the existing good practice already evident. This is a school that is going places.
For our staff, we are firmly committed to ensuring this is a job that can be enjoyed, where everyone can flourish. We pay close attention to work/life balance and, across the trust; we are developing strategies that take a common sense approach to those aspects of the role that could become an unnecessary burden on workload.
Our Teaching School is the beating heart of our Trust and our teachers learn together across the Trust, sharing their practice and encouraging and supporting each other to get the best out of our working day.
In our schools we have a relentless focus on excellence, but with the pragmatic emphasis on the balance between challenge and support, high expectation and nurture. And this counts for students and staff, teaching and non-teaching, so that our schools develop a family ethos, where everyone wants the best for everyone else.
In our team, therefore, our teachers are committed to continuously improving the classroom experience of our students with a genuine desire to improve the life chances of our young people.
