‘Staff morale is strong. Staff are unified and motivated’
‘Staff say the headteacher and other leaders are ‘genuine’ in their attempts to lessen workload and improve well-being’ Ofsted January 2020
Northfield School is a large 11-16 school and specialist sports college. We are an ambitious and inclusive school with state of the art facilities and interactive technology in a well-resourced newly refurbished main building and a separate new Year 7 school.
Following an inspection in January 2020, Ofsted judged that the school continues to be good and acknowledged all the positive work being undertaken to improve it further. This is a great time to join the school.
We are looking to appoint four Academic Mentors (Maths, Science, MFL, SEND) to support a range of pupils to achieve their full academic potential. Working closely with subject teachers and other staff, they will deliver effective support in order to raise achievement.
The successful candidates will have recent experience of working with young people, and will be highly organised with a methodical approach to work, as well as the ability to manage their own workload.
We can offer you:
• an enthusiastic, talented and supportive team
• a newly built and superbly resourced teaching and learning environment
• excellent opportunities for CPD
• a staff health and well being programme
• a warm, friendly and positive working environment where everyone is valued
