What skills and experience we're looking for

Please see attached infopack for further details about the position.

We are seeking an outstanding individual with drive, passion, enthusiasm and ambition to lead our MFL Department. This is an opportunity for an excellent classroom practitioner with strong subject knowledge and experience at teaching across KS3 to KS5 to take our MFL department and outcomes to the next level.

You will have excellent organisational, planning and communication skills and have high expectations of all students to secure the best outcomes. You believe that all students are capable of success and recognise that success comes in different forms. Driving forward strategic priorities, you will ensure there is a robust curriculum and assessment framework in place.

As a leader you are inspirational, forward thinking and put students at the heart of everything you do. You are creative, dynamic, empathetic and have a natural ability to lead and empower both students and staff. You hold the highest expectations of yourself, your staff and your students and recognise the importance of the curriculum both inside and outside the classroom, and are innovative in your commitment to both, ensuring that MFL always has a high profile within the school.

Everything that we do here at Teignmouth Community School is driven by our belief that we are all capable of being a slightly better version of ourselves tomorrow than we are today. This is underpinned by the values that, we believe, will ensure that we are all always working to be the best version of ourselves.

By working hard and never giving up we remain open to limitless opportunities for progress. We firmly believe that you have not failed until you stop trying.

As a community we have a responsibility to be kind and care for each other. We don’t need to agree with everyone, we don’t even need to understand everyone but there is absolutely nothing, other than our own fear, that stops us from accepting everyone.

And only by joining in can we develop and grow. Our characters are like muscles: if we don’t exercise them, if we never push ourselves beyond that which is comfortable then we will never grow.

Our unwavering commitment at Teignmouth Community School is to challenge and support every member of our community to be the best version of themselves.

If this sounds like the kind of community you would like to belong to and you are confident you can lead our MFL team, then please apply.

If you have any questions about the role, then please email Samantha Atkinson, Deputy Headteacher Samantha.Atkinson@teignmouthschool.co.uk
