Head of Religious Education to start June 1 (preferred) or September 2020 The Priory CofE Voluntary Aided School, Dorking, Surrey

Job description

An exciting opportunity to significantly impact on the lives of young people.

SIAMS: Outstanding (November 2015) Ofsted: Good (March 2019)
The Priory CofE School in Dorking is seeking to appoint an inspiring and visionary Head of Religious Education.
RE is an integral part of the curriculum through KS3 and KS4 with ALevel provision at KS5. The school is at an exciting place in its development of the curriculum at KS3 and the core offer at KS4; this offers an opportunity for a fresh and creative approach. Candidates with a clear passion and vision for the delivery of this subject would be ideally suited to join us at this pivotal point in our school’s development.
The Priory School is a successful and happy 11-19 Church of England Voluntary Aided school of 700 students, with an exceptionally positive school culture. We are rightly proud of our ‘outstanding’ SIAMS judgement and our recent ‘good’ Ofsted judgement. We have an excellent CPD programme for all and in-house provision for recently qualified teachers. While this post would not usually be suited to an NQT, colleagues at any stage in their career with potential and talent are most welcome to apply. We are keen to recruit and develop the right person to develop and deliver a truly inspirational education to our students.
At The Priory School, our Christian distinctiveness is embodied in our core values of Wisdom, Dignity, Hope and Community and our mission is ‘Educating for Life in All its Fullness’. Our school is the embodiment of a Church school for the community, and not a faith school for the faithful.
If you wish to join a school that is destined for even greater things, working in an environment where your professional development and well-being are continuously supported, then we would welcome your application which should be submitted by no later than noon on Monday 24 February 2020.
No agencies. The successful applicant will benefit from a £1000 welcome remuneration after completion of one term.
