John Ruskin SchoolCumbria

Teacher of French (maternity cover) 0.67FTE, 12 months fixed term contract, for February 2022 start.

The Fells Federation is made up of two small, forward-thinking schools in the heart of the Lake District, John Ruskin Secondary school and Coniston CofE Primary School.  We are wishing to appoint an ambitious, enthusiastic and multi-skilled colleague to a twelve month fixed term position in our French department as maternity leave cover. As well as teaching in John Ruskin School, the successful applicant will deliver French to primary students, KS3 and KS4.

We are looking for someone who is:

● An inspirational and passionate teacher

● Visionary with the energy and interpersonal skills to inspire and motivate

● Committed to ensuring the best possible outcome for all students

Both schools have been rated as good by Ofsted, describing the secondary in 2019 as a place where, ‘Staff and students are highly motivated to do their best and everyone thrives’. We have two French teachers who work closely together to deliver an engaging and fully accessible curriculum in KS3 and KS4. Every student at John Ruskin School takes French at KS3 - our lessons are tailored to a full range of ability. We also collaborate with colleagues in France to give our students opportunities to communicate with French pupils to make the language come alive.

Further details including a person specification, job description, information about the department, a covering letter from the Head Teacher and application form are attached, and will be posted on our website

Closing date: Tuesday 14 December 2021

Interviews: Week commencing 10 January 2022

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults, and expects all staff to share this commitment. Successful applicants will be required to undertake an enhanced check for regulated activity via the Disclosure and Barring Service and any other pre-employment checks in relation to the safeguarding of our students as necessary.
