“To have another language is to possess a second soul.” - Charlemagne

We need a talented German specialist who has the passion to provide our children with the best possible experience of this fascinating subject. Could it be you?

Whether you’re new to the profession or you have been teaching German for decades, you need an environment in which pupils genuinely want to learn. An environment in which your colleagues are as geeky about your subject as you are. 

Our teachers work very hard but they only ever do work which is going to make a difference for our pupils.  Quite simply, we believe in common sense approaches to everything.  That means:

  • Our teachers do minimal marking. Why spend ages with a red pen when there are much better ways to give pupils the feedback they need? 
  • We never ask for lesson plans.  Of any kind.  Ever.
  • Although schemes of work and resources are provided, they are not prescriptive – we cherish individual approaches to delivery.
  • There is no pressure to ‘put on a show’ in lessons: A culture of typicality is reinforced by no lesson gradings (outstanding, good, etc).
  • Everyone has the highest expectations of behaviour, with all staff (not just teaching staff) reinforcing those expectations.
  • A clear system of sanctions is applied consistently so staff don’t have to battle with pupils.
  • Senior Leadership are very visible and all staff ‘own’ their corridors.
  • CPD is tailored specifically to staff needs, based off their feedback.  This includes a fully funded Masters programme available to everyone.
  • There are no prizes for looking busy or staying late – we work in a way that suits us we make sure you make time for ourselves and our families.

That’s just 9 of the things we do to secure our teachers’ well-being.  There are many more here: http://www.barrbeaconschool.co.uk/47-things-we-do-staff-well-being/
