Teacher of RS
Full-time/Part-time considered (to meet the needs of the School)
January 2020 (or as soon as possible)
Do you enjoy working with young people? Are you an inspiring and passionate teacher? Do you want to make a real difference to lives of young people? If so, Spen Valley High School could be school for you.
We are looking for an individual who has a good understanding of the challenges our young people face growing up in today’s world, yet is aspirational for them and will work hard so they can achieve their very best. Someone who is committed and demonstrates grit and resilience and who believes it is a privilege to be a teacher. Someone who can take the initiative but is also a real team player. Someone who understands how difficult personal circumstances can impact on how young people behave and learn and genuinely wants to support them to become successful and happy adults.
This is an exciting opportunity for a passionate and enthusiastic Teacher to join our RS Department (teaching RS, Communication & ethics) in January 2020 (or as soon as possible) someone who will inspire and engage our students. A Teacher who is also able to teach English would be welcomed.
This is an exciting time to join Spen Valley High School as we build upon our many strengths and develop a truly coherent provision for our students. You will work alongside a team of highly professional & dedicated staff who are welcoming, open-minded and supportive. It is a particularly exciting time to join the school as we are undertaking a whole school review of our curriculum to ensure our students will leave us and be able to ’stand shoulder to shoulder’ with any other young person, from any other background.
Our staff are encouraged wherever possible to be involved in the various extra-curricular activities offered to our students and new ideas on these types of activities are welcomed.
We pride ourselves on providing varied and creative CPD opportunities. Being a member of The Red Kite Alliance, we receive support, advice and training from some of the most successful schools in Yorkshire.
As part of our commitment to staff we offer our a range of benefits, including:
- pension schemes
- Employee Healthcare
- Cycle to Work Scheme
- Employee Supervision (we encourage staff to be mindful of their own wellbeing and offer on site counselling sessions with no referral necessary)
