Job summary

Following the relocation of the existing post holder, we are now looking to appoint a well qualified and experienced teacher to join our SLT. The person appointed will lead either our Science or Mathematics Faculty and therefore it is essential that applicants can deliver Science or Mathematics to KS4. The successful candidate will work with a team of committed middle leaders and enthusiastic teachers to further develop standards within one of these faculty areas. Importantly, this role will form part of our Quality Assurance Team who oversee standards across KS1, 2, 3 and 4.

Perspective candidates are very likely to be existing middle leaders or very capable teachers with a strong track record of improving results and developing a team. We are particularly interested in someone who has a keen interest in establishing faculty working within a new build “all through” school environment and is ambitious to take on whole school responsibilities.

• Beyond curriculum responsibilities, all members of the SLT undertake “whole school” work. What areas are you most interested in undertaking, and why? (Max. 500 words).

Applications should be received via email to Mrs Lynne Hollis, PA to the Headteacher, on hollis@mayfield.portsmouth.sch.uk by 4:00pm on Friday 7th May 2021. Shortlisted candidates will be required to undertake a variety of activities including a presentation and interview.

About Mayfield School

Mayfield is a very successful and heavily oversubscribed school in the north of Portsmouth City. We are one of the first state, single-site, ‘all through’ schools in the country. We operate an “Outstanding” Pre-School and Nursery with reduced fees and preferential access for Mayfield staff. We have been successful in our bid to receive ‘Priority School Building’ funding which will result in the construction of a multi-million, ‘state of the art’ new build on the current school site which is due to open in summer 2021. In September 2016, OfSTED conducted a section 5 inspection and found all areas to be ‘good’ and in summer 2018 the school secured it’s best ever results across all key stages. All staff members have the opportunity to work across all sections of the school depending on their interest, skills and experience. During this period of growth, we have a number of vacancies in all sections and truly believe “our only limitation is our ambition”.

Before you apply for a post at Mayfield please ensure you have read and embrace our ways of working and ethos by reading our Staff Handbook.

Mayfield is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to criminal records bureau checks along with other relevant pre-employment checks.
