Teacher of French job summary

About this Role

Believe in traditional values and academic rigour? Want a Senior Leadership Team who visibly support staff? Want to teach pupils who behave impeccably at all times?

Then you should be interested in teaching at Bedford Free School. We are recruiting a French teacher for September 2024.

RESPECT, HONESTY, HIGH EXPECTATIONS

At BFS our values drive everything that we do and as a result our teachers enjoy impeccable behaviour in lessons and hardworking, highly motivated pupils. BFS is a genuinely comprehensive school that provides a knowledge-based education for pupils of all backgrounds.

PARENTAL CHOICE

With waiting lists in each year group and 2019 GCSE results placing us amongst the top schools in the country for progress, we are a hugely popular school. Demand for places is very high as parents want the combination of a BFS education and our distinctive small school feel for their children.

THE DEPARTMENT

All pupils at Bedford Free School learn Spanish in Year 7 and the majority go on to study French alongside Spanish in Years 8 and 9. We expect all pupils to study either French or Spanish at GCSE. The department is made up of a close-knit team of four teachers who meet on a weekly basis and has two dedicated classrooms equipped with Promethean boards. Our knowledge-based curriculum is co-planned and written in advance in the form of student booklets, saving teachers a great deal of time on a day-to-day basis.

SUPPORT AND DEVELOPMENT

At Bedford Free School we invest heavily in professional learning, which alongside support and coaching from our senior leadership team, and access to expertise across Advantage Schools, means you can develop to be your very best. There is a programme of training available to all staff at different stages of their career.

We have no unwieldy marking policies; our pupils’ behaviour is impeccable supported by same-day whole-school sanctions where necessary and Senior Leaders have a very high profile to ensure that you are supported to develop.

HOW TO APPLY

We welcome applications from ambitious and inspirational teachers who share our traditional approach and values of Respect, Honesty and High Expectations. To apply please fill in the application form and supporting statement illustrating how you meet the person specification for this role. We welcome visits to the school at any time and would encourage you to apply. For a confidential discussion about the position please contact Esther Logan, PA to SLT, on 01234 332290 or email elogan@bedfordfreeschool.co.uk to arrange an appointment.

We reserve the right to close this vacancy early should we interview and make an offer to the right candidate prior to the closing date.

Safeguarding children enrolled at the School is of paramount importance, and we are fully committed to the protection and safe care of our pupils. The successful applicant will be required to undertake appropriate checks as well as providing proof of your right to work in the UK.

Set up in 2012 by local teachers and parents, Bedford Free School exists to offer families a choice in Bedford.

Bedford Free School is a unique school with a fantastic educational offer. We really do believe that our pupils can go on to achieve extraordinary things. In our young history, we have proved they can and we are now one of the highest performing secondary schools not only in the area, but in the country.

BFS is a small school of only around 500 pupils, so staff get to know each pupil as an individual and we have a family feel. This allows us to encourage, demand and collectively strive for academic and personal success.

We believe that all pupils deserve a ‘grammar-school’ style education, with access to an academic curriculum, strong discipline, high expectations and access to highly selective universities, and a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
