Start date: September 2019
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: MPS/UPS
Contract term: Maternity Cover

Outwood Academy Danum became part of the Outwood family of schools in September 2016. In a recent Ofsted inspection we were graded good and we are still improving to become outstanding. This is an opportunity for you to join us on this journey.

The Academy is extremely proud of its well-established, vibrant music department, and we are determined to sustain and nurture the area whilst the lead teacher is on maternity leave. As well as maintaining the outstanding teaching and learning that takes place within this well-resourced department, we are also dedicated to safeguarding the excellent results the department achieves at all key stages. 

For the right candidate this post could lead to further opportunities within our Trust, where the Arts are highly valued and celebrated. As well as support within the Academy, the post will be supported by the Senior Director of the Arts for the Trust, Jonathan Morgan, who is a Music specialist.

An excellent knowledge and understanding of the subject is essential at all key stages as we currently deliver Eduqas GCSE and A Level. You must possess the skills and determination to make a significant difference to the lives of our students and share our single goal of ‘students first’. Applications are invited from experienced professionals.

The Outwood Grange Family of Schools offers: 

• The opportunity to work and progress across the Family of Schools. 

• The chance to apply for leadership roles in the Deeps working across the whole Academy. 

• A full and detailed programme of support and development for all, including specialist Music support from a Senior Subject Director. 

• A further comprehensive programme of professional development provided through the Outwood Institute of Education (formerly the Teaching School), as well as specialist Arts CPD and support provided through the Trust. 

We believe that all teaching and support staff posts within our Family of Schools are key posts in terms of supporting student success and achievement across a broad range of subjects and experiences. 

As such we are keen to recruit dedicated and ambitious professionals who will add value to our Academy in both academic terms and through involvement in the fabric of learning and success beyond the classroom.
