English Teacher job summary

To support the continuing growth of the school, the Governors are looking to appoint an English teacher who can teach across the secondary phase of the school.  

As an English teacher at Alderman Knight, you must have an excellent knowledge and understanding of the National Curriculum and a real passion for teaching children with special educational needs. You will also have the ability to differentiate learning experiences to match the needs of the individual and enable all pupils to enjoy their learning and make outstanding progress. You will also be a highly motivated, energetic person with a desire to become involved in all aspects of school life. 

We are looking for candidates who can demonstrate a desire to work within SEND, and, most importantly, SEND at Alderman Knight. Although special school experience is not essential, candidates will need to make it clear why they want to work in this area. In our secondary phase pupils follow a mainstream secondary model and are taught for many subjects by specialist teachers in specialist rooms.  We also welcome applications from ECTs.

This post will involve teaching KS3 English plus Level 1 and 2 English Functional skills at KS4. We are looking for a candidate who can deliver consistently high-quality lessons and a meaningful and carefully structured curriculum. Alderman Knight has a very strong and committed community with staff playing an extended role in the life of the school and contributing in many ways over and above their daily teaching commitment.

All teachers are also form tutors and this pastoral role is a key role for teachers at AKS.
