Act wisely and make the most of every opportunity
Rawlins is a good school with an outstanding sixth form
Teacher of Religious Studies (suitable for NQTs)
From: August 2021 (1 year fixed term initially with the potential to become permanent)
Rawlins Academy is seeking to appoint an innovative and enthusiastic Teacher of Religious Studies to join our fantastic team and flourishing Academy. Our ideal candidate will have a love for the subject and a passion for teaching so that our pupils thrive.
The Society in Action Faculty (which includes the RS Department) is a vibrant mix of experienced and new teachers. We have excellent support packages for NQTs and RQTs through mentoring and developmental support from our ITT and SCITT programme leaders. The faculty has a number of outstanding individuals who regularly share their expertise and work collaboratively, which will contribute to your own personal development. This combination of teamwork, an outward looking approach and a willingness to reflect internally upon best practice, has resulted in the faculty achieving outstanding results across a range of subjects. All staff are encouraged to participate fully within the faculty, contributing their ideas in order to ensure we continue to move forward. We therefore welcome applications from experienced teachers and NQTs.
This is an excellent opportunity to join one of Leicestershire’s largest schools with currently over 1500 on role including more than 300 in the Sixth Form. We are an inclusive school having an ASD and a Moderate Learning Difficulties specialist unit on site alongside our school’s SEND support base and Success Centre. Pupils who attend these units are an integrated part of our school community and taught within the school by mainstream staff.
There is a strong sense of community in the school, the village of Quorn and the surrounding areas with a committed parent support base. Teamwork is a key feature of school life.
We aim to inspire our pupils to find their talents and their passions through a broad and balanced curriculum; to be curious about learning; to relish a challenge and to have both confidence and resilience. Applications are therefore welcomed from well-qualified and highly motivated individuals who are keen to work with remarkable young people providing an exceptional education for all.
Our core purpose is summed up in our vision and values:
Developing Trust | Inspiring Hope | Building Success | Shaping the Future
Through: Compassion, Wisdom and Endurance
And in our motto: Act wisely and make the most of every opportunity
We do hope you will take the time to apply. This is a marvellous place to work and it is a very exciting opportunity. We look forward to meeting you in the near future.
