Science Teacher job summary

Science and the Wider Curriculum at XP
Our curriculum is predominantly taught through cross subject, highly rigorous, learning expeditions which are delivered through subjects that we group into a collective we call HUMAN (Humanities and Arts) and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths). The HUMAN collective includes the study of English Language, English Literature, Art, History and wider humanities subjects such as RE, Geography and Citizenship. The STEAM collective includes the study of Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Art. Expeditions are usually cross-curricular and include subjects from both HUMAN and STEAM combined. This ensures that students see connections between subjects and standards and thereby deepen their learning experiences.
Teachers at XP, are designers of the curriculum. Staff work together to create a curriculum overview that is: highly engaging; academically challenging and rigorous; purposeful and authentic; has creativity at its heart; and is determined to allow students to acquire knowledge that is then applied to bring about social change. Our Teachers ensure that our curriculum is relevant and purposeful, and everything we do links to improving ourselves, our community and our wider world.
We look forward to receiving your application.
Useful links and wider reading:
Every learning expedition has purposeful fieldwork that links to learning back in the classroom. (Hatfield Moors Nature Reserve, Balby Church, Mam Tor, First day of Y7: outward bound in Wales, ‘Local architecture’, Frenchgate survey, Hyde Park cemetery, National Railway museum, Advanced manufacturing park, ‘University of Leeds’, ‘Conversation Club’, Jodrell Bank, ‘National memorial arboretum’,
Every learning expedition uses experts to support, strengthen and provide authenticity to the learning process for students (Macbeth, WW1 munitions expert, Architect, Tapton 6th form, Graffiti expert, )
Every learning expedition has a product that connects to, and impacts positively on the world. (#StandUpDoncaster, Should I stay or should I go documentary, published books, Romeo & Juliet student performance, ‘NHS Diabetes UK’,
Every expedition has a Presentation of Learning where students publicly share and celebrate their work with a wider audience: ‘Making My Mind Up’, ‘A Place Of Our Own’, ‘Remembrance Day Service’, ‘Society, Steam and Speed book launch‘, ‘Human Machine’, ‘Poetry Slam’, ‘Viking Art Gallery’, ‘How can maths and science save a life?’, ‘Chefistry‘, ‘High Voltage’,

There is the opportunity of a lifetime to teach Science at our extraordinary schools, XP and XP East. We need someone to teach Science within our highly regarded expeditionary learning curriculum. This is a fantastic opportunity for an Science specialist to develop activism, leadership and equity in our students by creating beautiful products and important work that will change the world.
Our Design Principles
‘At XP, we build our community through…
and Equity…
sharing our stories as we go.’
These design principles are the basis for all our work. We focus on enabling our students to create beautiful work that creates agency and has a positive impact on the world; we encourage leadership in our students by facilitating the ownership of their own learning; and we have an unabated insistence on equity to ensure that we remove any barriers that inhibit student growth and success.
Therefore, at XP we focus relentlessly on high quality work and character growth. As a result, our school culture is value driven. Therefore, we expect our students, staff and parents to be courageous, respectful, committed to craftsmanship and quality, compassionate and to always show integrity. We provide an authentically tough and rewarding education for everyone, and we believe this is best achieved through not segregating our children by any measure, such as social class or academic ability.
We believe a person is judged by their character and the quality of work they produce. Our school focuses continuously on these two crucial areas of development. Our students express who they are by personalising their work, and are given time to produce beautiful and meaningful work by following a process of multiple drafts and critique, working towards creating products which are indistinguishable from professionals. Every day, our students develop their habits of work and learning by working hard, getting smart and being kind, and reflecting on our character values of courage, respect, craftsmanship and quality, compassion and integrity.
