Teacher of Science
The Science Faculty is a well-resourced Department comprising a dedicated team of colleagues of various levels of experience and backgrounds which is committed to ensuring the highest possible learning experience to the students at Moor End Academy. There are 10 Science teachers within the Faculty, including a Curriculum Leader and an Assistant Curriculum Leader and Lead Teacher. TeachFirst and Schools Direct applicants have received excellent training within the Faculty, ensuring that the Faculty benefits from the recruitment of NQTs of excellent potential. The teachers and students are well supported by a team of 3 technicians, administrative assistant and educational teaching assistant. The majority of teachers have their own lab with interactive whiteboard (in total, there are 9 labs within the Faculty). There is a portable suite of laptops and ipad’s available for science lessons.
The Faculty offers a varied enrichment programme to which all colleagues contribute and deliver. Students take part in many of the Excellence Hub activities organised by the University of York. We have a strong relationship with a number of external STEM providers, including the Engineering Development Trust, Leeds University STEMnet, WySTEM, Sheffield Hallam University National Science Learning Network, Tomorrow’s Engineers, National Science Centre at York.
The Faculty organises curriculum ‘drop down’ days (3D Days) to widen students’ experience of science and science-related careers and utilise a number of employer engagement links to support this. Parental engagement forms an important element of our extra-curricular provision. Science is a vital part of Academy life. We need a candidate who can provide our students with the best possible life opportunity that academic scientific excellence brings. Our mission is to provide a rigorous education that prepares our students for success at university and beyond, irrespective of their starting point. We need someone who can bring the rigor essential to further enhance the lives of the students we serve.
