Blackfen School is a progressive and vibrant learning community that focuses on raising the aspirations and releasing the potential of every young person in our care. In 2019, 60% of students in year 11 achieved five or more GCSE 9-4 grades, including at least a 4 in English and a 4 in Mathematics. Our Progress 8 score was 0.018. At A level in 2019, 96% of the grades were A*-E with 30% at A*-B and 63% at A*-C. Similarly high levels were achieved in Level 3 BTEC qualifications.
Our Governors wish to appoint an ambitious, talented, innovative temporary teacher who is committed to raising achievement and who has the capacity to make a real contribution to the work of a supportive and continually improving school. This role is available due to the substantive post holder taking maternity leave.
The successful candidate will have the ability to teach Maths up to and including Key Stage 5. There is the possibility of a Key Stage Responsibility for experienced Teachers.
Ambition for excellence, a passion for student achievement and the desire to develop professional skills within a supportive learning community will characterise applications for this post.
Visits to the school are warmly welcomed.
The successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service Check.
This post is considered to be a customer-facing position; as such it falls within scope of the Code of Practice on English language requirement for public sector workers. The school therefore has a statutory duty under Part 7 of the Immigration Act 2016 to ensure that the post holders have a command of spoken English sufficient for the effective performance of the job requirements. The appropriate standards are set out in the person specification. These will be applied during the recruitment/selection and probationary stages.
