Opportunity to become a Lead Practitioner and/or Specialist Leader of Education
‘This is an outstanding school. Teachers have high expectations of their students, who respond by producing excellent work.’ (OFSTED, June 2015)
High aspirations? Looking for an exciting new challenge? Our Academy is a vibrant and exciting place to work and was graded as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in June 2015. In 2016, Magna achieved a Progress 8 score of 0.52, placing us well within the top 5% of highest performing schools nationally.
Our systems ensure you can really focus on your core purpose – teaching, in a sustainable way, reducing your workload through:
- tight, robust and no-nonsense behaviour systems
- all detentions are centralised, including homework detentions
- a feedback policy focused on whole class feedback, eliminating the need for hours and hours of marking
- highly visible and supportive senior leaders
‘The behaviour of students is outstanding. They are exceptionally keen to learn, and show real enthusiasm in lessons.’ (OFSTED, June 2015)
We are looking for an exceptional individual to play an important role in our unique and growing Academy. The successful candidate will be an excellent teacher of Geography and will also play an important pastoral role in leading a tutor group.
It is an excellent opportunity for either an NQT or someone wishing to further develop their career, with development opportunities to become a Specialist Leader of Education (SLE) or Aspirant Lead Practitioner/Lead Practitioner (paid on the Lead Practitioner pay scale). You may already be a Lead Practitioner – this position would allow you further development opportunities.
With great students who behave impeccably, an outstanding team of staff, state of the art facilities, and a very pleasant location in beautiful Dorset, Magna Academy offers an excellent opportunity for an ambitious, talented individual looking to develop their career. Ofsted highlighted our very effective staff training and support and outstanding CPD. We have a very comprehensive, and
effective, development programme, bringing all subject areas together every week to share best practice. We teach a challenging academic curriculum for all students. We are driven by a desire, at the core of our mission, to get the best possible results for all of our students, no matter what their starting points or circumstances.
‘Students make exceptional progress.’ (OFSTED, June 2015)
As a rapidly growing academy, that will be at full capacity in 2019, and as a newly designated NCTL Teaching School, you would be joining us at a very exciting time and become part of a vibrant learning community that will offer you fantastic opportunities for CPD, career development, future promotions and for you to be able to make your mark.
We would be delighted to show you around our Academy in order to fully appreciate our excellent learning environment.
