Temporary Teacher of History (Maternity Cover)

Required from February half term a well-qualified and successful classroom practitioner to teach History in our Humanities Faculty.  The take up of History at GCSE and A Level is very strong.  It would be expected that the successful candidate would be able to teach up to GCSE Level and the ability to teach A Level is preferred.

This is a great time to join our school as we consolidate links with the three feeder primary schools which form part of our Multi-Academy Trust (The Minerva Learning Trust). We work closely with colleagues across the MLT, sharing ideas about assessment, literacy, numeracy and other areas of pedagogy.  We are members of the Jurassic Coast Teaching Alliance, which enables us to participate in a diverse range of initiatives, including the Women in Leadership programme and CPD seminars from notable speakers such as Deborah Myhill and Daisy Christodoulou. We are an outwardly facing school in a beautiful part of the country and have strong links with our local community as a Rights Respecting School.  We are committed to managing staff workload and have a Staff Wellbeing and Stress Reduction Working Group.

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment.  We accept applications from all potential candidates including NQT, main scale and UPS colleagues.  Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the Subject Leader of History, Mrs Lucy Cleak, cleakl@colfox.dorset.sch.uk or 01308 422291.  Visits to the school are also warmly accepted.

An application form and details can also be downloaded from either the school website: www.colfox.org or you can apply online at: www.dorsetforyou.com/jobs.  Completed application forms should be emailed to the Headteacher’s PA, Amanda Tuck a.tuck@colfox.dorset.sch.uk
