The Role

Richard Barnes Academy are looking to appoint a RHSE/Citizenship teacher who wants to make a difference to join our enthusiastic, hard-working and committed team. 

Following an Inadequate Ofsted judgement in May 2019, the Peterborough Pupil Referral Unit decided to join a multi-academy trust and secured the sponsorship of Thomas Deacon Education Trust.

In May 2020, the PPRU was rebranded and relaunched as the Richard Barnes Academy, specialising in alternative provision for children and young people for whom traditional teaching methods have not worked. The Academy was named after TDET's Chair of the Board of Trustees, Richard Barnes. TDET, as the sponsor, is keen to create an Academy that offers enriching experiences for young people struggling to succeed with their education, using highly creative ways of teaching which will encourage pupils to develop the confidence, skill and knowledge to believe that they can lead successful lives and make a positive contribution to society. 

The Richard Barnes Academy provides specialist primary and secondary education for pupils, aged between 4-16, who have been permanently excluded from school, or who are at risk of permanent exclusion. The aim of the service is to successfully integrate as many of these pupils as possible back into mainstream education. Most pupils who use the service have behavioural, social and emotional difficulties and the PRU works closely with pupils, parents, schools and other support services to help them return to school.

Joining the Richard Barnes Academy is an exciting opportunity to teach highly challenging children in small classes with a clear focus on the quality of education. The curriculum offered will have to be creative and innovative if we are to transform lives. TDET want to create an Academy that offers enriching experiences for young people struggling to succeed with their education, using highly creative ways of teaching that will encourage pupils to develop the confidence, skill and knowledge to believe they can lead successful lives and make a positive contribution to society

The Trust offers:

• Excellent salary package.

• Fantastic training/CPD opportunities in a friendly supportive environment.

• Opportunity for progression across Thomas Deacon Education Trust.

• Use of Academy facilities (including a gym and onsite car parking).

• Teachers’ pension scheme.

• An engaging, creative and welcoming environment to learners who take pride in their school.

• An inclusive and collaborative approach.

• A talented, highly motivated, committed and professional team of colleagues, both within the school and across the trust.

• An actively supportive Local Governing Body and Trust leadership.

Thomas Deacon Education Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The Academy will require the successful candidate to provide satisfactory references and undertake an Enhanced Check with the Disclosure and Barring Service.
