Head of RE
Start September 2021
MPS/UPS TLR 2B £4781

A once in a career opportunity to work in a brand new, state of the art £34 million school.

This is a genuinely unique opportunity to take on a founding role at the first ‘all through’ school in Essex.

The Beaulieu Park School opened the doors to 60 Reception children in September 2018. In September 2019, another cohort was welcomed into the Primary School, together with 180 Year 7 students. We were pleased that we are oversubscribed with families nominating us as their first choice school again this year. The school will grow one year at a time until it is full in 2024. We are already planning our 6th form provision.

We are looking to appoint a Head of RE to take responsibility for the provision of Religious Education at our secondary school. This position will be key to establishing the development of a very special and exceptionally strong culture, identity and ethos here.

The successful candidate will be an outstanding practitioner who has a successful record of enabling high achievement, of forging productive relationships with all students and their families regardless of their background or ability. They will be reflective, excited by taking risks and accepting that failure is a part of the learning process. They will promote lifelong learning through their constant drive to improve their own practice, as well as supporting those they lead and work alongside to develop their skills.

Specific responsibilities are outlined in the Job Description.
