Full time / Permanent

Start Date – 1st September 2024

Salary: MPS/UPS (£30,000 - £46,525) + TLR 1E (£11,409) – This will mean that for an experienced candidate, there is an opportunity to earn up to £57,934 (with a pay award pending for 2024)

About the role:

We regard science as being one of our ‘flagship’ faculties, delivering strong outcomes and having an excellent reputation locally. The faculty delivers GCSE combined science, GCSE triple science, as well as psychology and health & social care, with a range of lead teachers who are remunerated with TLRs, providing leadership for each subject offered. Following the promotion of the current curriculum leader to our senior team, we are seeking to appoint an associate curriculum leader who can lead our science faculty, supported where required by the former curriculum leader who is keen for someone to implement their own vision for the department.

This role is ideal for those with existing leadership experience in science perhaps as a leader of biology, chemistry or physics or as a second in department. Whilst leadership qualifications are useful, they are not essential as we will invest in the successful candidate.

Managing the well-being and workload of staff is something taken extremely seriously by the Principal, having already taken steps to reduce unnecessary burdens and bureaucracy. These actions were rated highly in the most recent staff survey, which takes place on annual basis.
