Early Career Teachers welcomed (NQTS)


Start date: September 2021
‘Staff morale is high with staff welcoming the open conversations about teaching, and they welcome the ways leaders encourage the evaluation and sharing of what works’ Ofsted 2019

‘I just love coming to work every morning, this school is fantastic; amazing teachers, lovely students and a fantastic community to work in. The welcoming feel of the school and the staff and children in it just made me feel like I belonged right from the start, and I still feel this way a year later’

Why come and join our school?

Scalby School is a successful and popular 11-16 community school and in recent years we have become the school of choice in our local community. We were judged ‘good’ by Ofsted in 2019 and in 2019 we celebrated sustained results. Our provisional P8 score places us in the top 20% of schools nationally again. We are proud of our broad and balanced GCSE based curriculum.

Our students are diverse, exciting and talented – and the same is true of our staff. We put huge emphasis on professional development, most of it in-house, and are proud of the highly effective teaching, which characterises our school. We are also noted for our ‘can do’ attitude. We are keen, always, to encourage new and/or young staff to make their mark as soon as they are ready.

We are:

• A ‘Good’ school in every area as judged by Ofsted in 2012 and in 2019

• A school with above average Progress 8 score because our students exceed expectations.

• A school with a clear focus on teaching and learning. We are proud of our bespoke programme of nationally recognised, high-profile seminars designed by our Teaching School and with key note speakers from across the educational world.

• A leading school in the Scarborough and North Yorkshire area with a real focus on making sure all our staff develop professionally.

• A school where the development of the culture and character of our students is at the heart of our curriculum – so that all our students leave school knowing how to conduct themselves in the wider world.

Our Trust

Scalby Learning Trust is a growing family of schools based on the North Yorkshire Coast. We have grown from our lead secondary school (Scalby School), welcomed Newby Scalby Primary in 2018, Friarage Primary School in 2019 and Lady Lumley’s School in 2021.

We are growing organically and firmly building on the school improvement journeys of Scalby School, Newby Scalby Primary and Friarage Primary School. As we become a Trust of 4 schools (with continued growth), it is right that we make sure that we have the right team to deliver the best possible education to our children and young people.

Our opportunity

As a result of promotion we are looking to appoint a talented colleague to our fully staffed and well-resourced Maths department. Over the last three years we have ensured that new colleagues joining us are able to be supported and developed through working closely with our two Lead Practitioners, Associate Senior Leader and our Head of Department.

You would join a Maths faculty of seven, which is staffed with Maths specialists who continue to build year on year in terms of outcomes, curriculum and extracurricular options to our students. A key focus for the department is to continue to build on the strengths and successes seen in recent years and as our new teacher, you will work closely with the team who will support, develop and challenge you.

Both Early Career Teachers and experienced colleagues are welcome to apply – what goes without saying is that we will support you, develop you and above all welcome you into our aspirational school.

We are looking for a Teacher of Maths who:

• Is passionate about teaching and has a creative and flexible approach for all key stages.
• Will model best practice teaching and learning across the department and support the development of quality teaching in the department.
• Will support, challenge and engage a diverse cohort of students, enriching their learning experience, maximising their potential and raising attainment.
• Will play a key role in leading aspects of faculty CPD.

What we can offer you:
• Access to our Teaching School Alliance CPD which includes NQT, RQT and NPQML specific courses
• Access to our Chartered College of Teaching Hub – one of only 11 nationally.
• Visible and supportive SLT so you can get on with teaching your subject to students who thrive within our climate for learning.
• Tailored career pathways as you develop your teaching career with us.

We are proud to work alongside our eight other local secondary schools and we believe we have a unique opportunity for colleagues to grow, develop and thrive in their career as part of our coastal community.

About Scalby School

Dear applicant,

Allow me to extend a warm welcome from all governors, staff and students of Scalby School.

I was delighted to be appointed Headteacher in January 2018 and while any Head will say their school is special – I truly believe Scalby is.

It is hard to encapsulate in words the full dynamism and vibrancy of our school. We are hugely proud of our students and privileged to serve them and this community. We see it as our professional and moral duty to prepare them as individuals to play their part as active citizens – rounded and centred and aware of all they might contribute to the world. In practical terms, this commitment is manifested in the lessons we deliver, the extra-curricular opportunities we offer and in the wider opportunities we promote.

Scalby is a school with a strong academic tradition but we are equally committed to the Arts, to sport and to collective and individual achievement beyond the classroom. Our annual productions held at the Stephen Joseph theatre are testament to this, and over the years we have seen productions of Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Our House to name but a few.
We have developed and benefited from our partnerships within Scalby Learning Trust, Scarborough Teaching Alliance and local secondary and primaries – a few reasons to join us!

In recent years enormous strides have been made to further increase learning standards. This hard work has seen results improve consistently and led to Ofsted rating our school as ‘Good’ in 2012 and in 2019. I truly believe we are a school with highly effective teachers producing outstanding outcomes for our students.

I hope you can see that this is an excellent time to join Scalby. If successful you will join a staff team of wonderful professionals who have ambition for our students and for themselves. I take pride in ensuring colleagues receive opportunities to develop their skills and experiences – and we have an enviable reputation for delivering high quality professional development.

I hope that you will take the time to come and see and experience for yourself the warm and welcoming atmosphere which makes our vision a reality.

Good luck with your application.

Michael McCluskie
