‘There is a culture of high expectations and ambition that is shared by staff. Everyone wants the best for the pupils’ Ofsted 2016

Broadlands Academy is an 11-16 learning community and proud to be part of Academies Enterprise Trust family of schools. We are a small, mixed, fully inclusive comprehensive school taking children from ages 11 to 16 and remain one of the best choices for learning in the area.   For every student who attends our Academy, we aim to raise their aspirations, broaden their horizons and promote a life-long love of learning.  We are situated in extensive grounds and ideally located between Bath and Bristol.  We benefit from a number of links with the local community and have an excellent reputation.  Broadlands has started to develop its post 16 learning on site.

As a smaller than average school we are fortunate to be able to really get to know each and every student. Over the last 3 years we have made great strides in school improvement and we believe we are at an exciting stage of our development. Our GCSE results in 2017 were pleasing and we were delighted that a greater number of students than the national average have achieved the new ‘9’ grade (above an A* standard) in both English and Maths. An amazing 10% of students achieved over 8 GCSEs at a grade A or higher.

We are looking to appoint a well-qualified, enthusiastic and highly motivated Teacher of Literacy and Numeracy to join our experienced and effective SEND team with immediate effect. This is a fixed term post until 31 August 2018 pending SEND funding for 2018/19. This role requires the post holder to be responsible for ensuring accelerated progress, high quality curriculum provision and effective teaching and learning for students with SEND and particularly those in the transition phase. 

This post provides an excellent opportunity for a teacher who is prepared to make a difference to the on-going development of the whole child and may be of interest to a primary practitioner wanting to extend their skills in a SEND department within the secondary sector.

We are looking to appoint an individual who has:

  • Achieved Qualified Teacher status. 
  • Excellent knowledge of the Key Stage 1 and 2 Curriculum.
  • Experience in teaching and the ability to motivate a diverse student body.

This is a part time (0.4) post with the proposed working days being Thursday and Friday but applicants who wish to wish to work on different days or hours will also be considered.

The Academy has made rapid progress since that point and has celebrated four consecutive years of results above the national average. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to work within an outstanding SEND team and benefit from a comprehensive professional development programme supported through the sponsor, Academies Enterprise Trust.

 As the sponsor, AET believes that all young people deserve to become world-class learners – to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up-to-date resources available to them. In each of our academies, you will benefit from visionary, inspirational and dynamic leadership and be empowered to develop your own skills with access to world-class CPD and Talent Management programmes. You will also be entitled to the following benefits: a health cash plan, vehicle affinity scheme, childcare vouchers and Westfield rewards.

This position is required to commence as soon as possible.

Closing date: Sunday 29 October 2017

Interviews are scheduled to take place w/c Monday 30 October 2017.
