English Teacher Bobby Moore Academy, London

Job description

Our vision is for every student to succeed in English. All students will leave Bobby Moore Academy with high levels of literacy and able to apply their skills in the world beyond school. Students will have an appreciation of a range of literature to inspire them academically and in their own lives.

We’re looking for an enthusiastic, highly skilled teacher to play a significant role in shaping our growing team. We believe that all students can succeed in English, and that the best way to ensure that this happens is through world-class teaching of both reading and writing. As a school, we have high expectations of students both in terms of academic achievement and conduct, and we have developed rigorous systems to ensure that students meet these expectations.

As a department and as a school, we place great emphasis on supporting teachers in developing their practice through mentoring, departmental co-planning and developing awareness of research and best practice. This has supported us in developing a mastery-based curriculum which also draws on research on memory and retention from cognitive science.

We have a fully-staffed and highly qualified team, with great subject expertise. We are committed to staff development, with co-planning timetabled weekly. As the team and the school grows, there will be plentiful opportunities for additional responsibility as well to develop your own practice.

We place a high value on teacher development and well-being. In addition to making staff development a cornerstone of our practice, we have a sensible and realistic approach to workload, particularly written feedback and data collection. We understand the importance of providing students with effective feedback, but we also recognise that there are many ways to do this; consequently, we give departments and staff freedom as to how they provide students with regular and effective feedback.

This is an exciting time to join us and help shape what we want t
