Subject Leader for Art and Design job summary
Do you have the necessary skills and attributes to become an integral part of our community? Would you like to work in a welcoming and vibrant rural school? If you have the relevant skills, you could join a friendly staff dedicated to providing an outstanding educational experience. Uplands is a school committed to staff development, where individual needs are supported through a variety of development opportunities.
The faculty consists of two teachers with a small number of additional hours taught by a part-time member of staff. There is also collaboration with the design and technology department. In addition, the art department have supported the music and drama teachers to produce a high-quality annual school production. In 2022 we staged ‘The Addams Family’ in our brand-new Emma Watson Theatre. The faculty has good accommodation and benefits from a new kiln and a part-time art technician.
The successful applicant will need to be able to demonstrate resilience, motivation, and commitment, acting as a role model for students. A genuine passion for learning and belief in every student is essential.
There is a commitment to planning engaging and purposeful lessons with clear modelling in order for students to gain the knowledge they need to make the next steps. Colleagues use regular formative assessment in every lesson to reduce the knowing-doing gap. We actively promote reading to build on students’ cultural capital, improve vocabulary acquisition and to support their personal development.
