Dear Colleague

Thank you for your interest in joining Newfield School. This is an excellent opportunity to join our great school and to play role in shaping the provision of education and lifelong learning opportunities for our students. We believe that ‘Achievement Leads to Opportunity and Choice’ and our three core values underpin and drive all that we do for our students;
• We are high performing because we are curious and have a thirst for knowledge;
• We are considerate and value our community;
• We succeed through commitment and relentless ambition.

Irrespective of starting point, family background or ability each and every child that walks through our school doors deserves a quality first education. We are passionate about the numbers of students who are classed as disadvantaged making the same as, if not more, progress than their advantaged peers. Therefore, we lead a high functioning school that gives pupils true social justice and the opportunity to make the best of their education ensuring no doors are closed in their future. Achieving qualifications alongside our commitment to exciting and engaging extra-curricular offer means our students have opportunity and choice following their rich education at Newfield School.

Newfield School is a truly special place to work. The core business of teaching and learning is at the heart of all we do. We have high expectations of our staff but we also value and look after them. We balance hard work with meaningful and tailored professional development, great practice every day with a manageable workload. Our school has a proven consistent record of success and we will continue to make exceptional progress with our students this year and into the future.

We believe that our students are future scholars in their chosen fields and that teachers are the experts in the classroom who should impart their knowledge to students. We use the best evidence to lead our approach to learning and teaching and follow approaches that are supported by cognitive science. As a result, lessons are structured around the explicit teaching and assessment of knowledge. They are characterised by rapid progress, whole class drills, repetition of facts, teacher led instruction and high performance regardless of ability or background.

The climate for learning in our school is very positive and this is underpinned by very high expectations of behaviour, dress and attitude to learning. Our students are well-behaved and ambitious. All staff are consistent in their high expectations and approach to discipline and the Senior Team have a high presence day in day out in our school.

Newfield School is a valued partner and driving force within the Mercia Learning Trust, a local and ambitious Trust that is dedicated to improving the life chances and careers of its students and those professionals working within it. The Trust is one of the most successful Trusts in the Yorkshire and Humber region and changes the lives of over 3000 pupils and young people in Sheffield and is continuing to grow.

This is an exciting time for us as we move towards being a truly exceptional school. Our reputation is growing and our challenge now is not just to sustain but to surpass our recent GCSE performances, to lead the way on pedagogy, to deliver effective and exciting learning at the highest level and to become a beacon school for training, research and professional development.

We support applications from candidates who understand and support our approach to teaching and learning. Imaginative and committed, you will have a passion for your subject, high standards of professionalism and high expectations of students.

For an informal and confidential discussion, please contact Ruth Cressey, PA to the Headteacher at rcressey@newfield.sheffield.sch.uk.

If this excites you and you believe you have the necessary skills for this role, I would welcome your interest and application.

I look forward to meeting you.

Yours faithfully

Emma Anderson
Headteacher
