Teacher of Geography (Maternity Cover) job summary

We are a highly supportive school with strong subject and senior leadership to help you develop. We are looking for a highly ambitious, committed and dynamic professional to join our Humanities department; someone who is passionate about their subject, communicates well with young people and makes a positive impact on their learning. The Humanities department comprises of 12 full-time Humanities teachers, including five Geography specialist teachers in three specialist classrooms. Being an all-through school allows us to also work closely with Primary colleagues and share best practice between phases to ensure a smooth transition for students on entry into the secondary phase. There are also exciting plans to extend our Post-16 provision.

The Geography department offers a broad and ambitious curriculum that empowers teachers to tailor learning to their students' academic, social and emotional needs. Planning is centralised as we aim to work collaboratively, but teachers are encouraged to select sources and material suitable to the learners in their classes and have flexibility in how they address learning objectives to ensure the best outcomes for their students. GCSE Geography is a popular option with five classes in Year 11 and six classes in Year 10. KS4 students study the GCSE AQA specification which includes fieldwork in Oxford and the River Chess for the human and physical enquiries. Case study examples of Nigeria, Jamaica, London and Rio de Janeiro. Additional information about the topics studies by each year group can be found on our website.

Like the Academy results as a whole, the most recent GCSE results saw students making good progress: P8 was the highest it has been in the Academy's history and the gaps between the progress of SEN and Pupil Premium students continues to narrow. Aylesbury Vale Academy has outperformed all other local non-selective schools.

Commitment to safeguarding

Our commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children will be reflected throughout the recruitment process and the successful applicant will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check and an online screening check. We also carry out Enhanced DBS checks every five years.
