Further details about the role

TBC is made up of one lead teacher who manages the provision, an unqualified teacher and a teaching assistant. TBC is accommodated in specialised accommodation with its two teaching rooms, kitchen/timeout room, sensory room and office. We work together as a team to give our students every chance at success when mainstream education is not meeting their needs. As well as ensuring our students make good progress in English and Maths, we aim to encourage a love of Science in our students. We want them to have a sense of wonder, curiosity and understanding about how the world and universe work. We also teach PSHE and life skills to prepare them for life after school and the adult world. We endeavour to use evidence-based pedagogy to achieve the best learning for all our students.

We currently provide learning for seven students in KS3 and 4. Our timetable consists of English, Maths, Science, PE, PSHE and Life Skills. We currently offer two Forest School sessions a week and would like this to continue with training available for staff. Some students are on a part-time timetable, attending some mainstream lessons where appropriate. In Key Stage 4, students undertake Functional Skills qualifications in English and Maths and study towards GCSE exams in Year 11.

The Pingle Academy is a successful and well-respected comprehensive school which became an academy in May 2017 as part of the de Ferrers Trust. We currently cater for 1429 students aged 11–19 and have been over-subscribed for the past five years. The academy enjoys an excellent reputation.

Our academy is truly inclusive and includes Enhanced Resource Sections for students with mild learning difficulties and students with more complex needs. In addition, we have our own alternative provision, which caters for a small number of students who find mainstream classes challenging. Our staff share responsibility for creating a safe and pleasant place to learn and work and are proud of our efforts to educate and care for all our students, whatever their abilities, to ensure that every student’s potential is fulfilled.

We are proud of our caring and inclusive community, and our values of WORK HARD, BE KIND, CHOOSE WISELY are present in all aspects of academy life.

In 2019, the academy enjoyed its best-ever results both at GCSE and A Level. In October 2021, OFSTED judged the academy as GOOD in all areas.

Our priority is to help parents/carers prepare their children for adult lives in a rapidly changing world. We aim to provide a broad and stimulating curriculum; we set high expectations for work and behaviour, and we encourage students to aspire to these standards with confidence.

We value our staff, ensuring that we look after and care for their wellbeing through professional development, mental health provision and supporting staff with their workload.
