What skills and experience we're looking for

Thank you for clicking on Mason Moor's advert!

We are looking for a teacher who is hungry and ambitious for leadership. As headteacher, I don't believe in experience dictating your ambition to become a leader. If there's a fire in your belly to make a difference - this is the school to make it happen at!

I would like to appoint somebody who adheres and wants to work in a context where 'no ceiling' limits are placed on children's potential and where opportunity exists for all. We serve one of the biggest council estates in Southampton and our children need teachers and leaders who help them to become the best they can be.

You need to be:

  • A skilled teacher who demonstrates competent practice and is happy and willing to share it.
  • Somebody looking for progression on a steeper learning curve than typically anticipated.
  • A committed practitioner who can apply their teaching skills across the school to benefit teachers and pupils across phases.

What the school offers its staff

  • We have a unique curriculum that is pre-planned in all non-core lessons - enabling teachers to have their Sunday's to themselves! We provide the lesson planning, subject knowledge development and the visuals - they just need to be tweaked as you see appropriate.
  • We operate a supportive and thought-through well being strategy - where teachers are able to take well-being days within the year!
  • We utilise technology - we have VR (virtual reality) headsets for bringing the curriculum alive and utilise Google and Apple software.
  • Every child visits London and has 3 trips/visits per year!
  • We work in partnership with another local school - ensuring that you benefit from the experience of another setting as well as being able to contribute to wider school improvement.
  • We offer well-being that is unrivalled - from a reduced feedback policy (limited marking) to Well-being Days throughout the year.
  • Induction across both of the Executive Headteacher's schools.

Further details about the role

  • In Autumn 2022 we had a redecoration of our entire school.
  • We rebranded with a new logo to bring us into the 21st Century.
  • There are opportunities to work across the Executive Head's schools.

In your application - it would be useful to see mention of:

  • Your approach to pedagogy and it's impact on the classroom.
  • Your assessment data and how you use this to accelerate pupil outcomes.
  • Experience of working in, or with, socio-economically deprived families.

NOTE: Please do not apply from overseas if requiring a visa.

Commitment to safeguarding

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and
expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be
subject to satisfactory references, health checks and DBS clearance.
