Teacher, Suitable for NQTs
The Midland Academies Trust have an opportunity for a colleague who wishes to join a strong subject community within a knowledge focused trust by appointing a Teacher of MFL at Heath Lane Academy. The ability to teach Spanish is desirable but not essential.
The Midland Academies Trust is a close-knit family of schools where we believe that our staff are our greatest resource. Everything we do as a Trust has to fulfil the twin aims of accelerating student progress and reducing staff workload – if it doesn’t achieve both we simply don’t do it
We want it to be easy for our staff to help students achieve well and be prepared for a successful future. That’s why we continually review how we work and actively promote teachers as experts in their classrooms; provide a curriculum which is rich and deep in knowledge and work within a network of schools committed to using and sharing research led practice. We believe in strong subject communities working together to reduce individual staff workload
By joining the English and MFL team at Heath Lane Academy, you will not only become part of a friendly and supportive faculty, but will also join our extended subject community across the Trust. This provides unique benefits for professional development and support at subject level. MFL staff across the Trust participate in, and contribute to, regular subject-specific professional development sessions. The MFL curriculum was written and resourced by the entire subject community, and as a member of the wider team you will participate in ongoing curriculum development.
Our students have clear classroom routines so no time is wasted
• Our teachers give whole class feedback, not individualised marking
• Our middle leaders focus on student learning, not data input
• Our senior leaders manage student conduct for our staff
• Our faculties plan and work together on shared approaches
• Our five year curriculum is highly ambitious and knowledge-led
• Our staff are valued as professional experts in their field
• Our Trust sets time for collaboration and learning from experts
• Our annual calendar of meetings and events are released before the start of the academic year
• Our five year, knowledge-rich curriculum features common examination boards across all schools

About Heath Lane Academy
Heath Lane Academy is:
A strong school at the heart of our community where pupils are safe, happy and do well.
A school where good manners and good behaviour are the norm; where we look after one another and respect each other.
A school where teaching is exciting and learning is successful; where everyone works hard in the classroom to make progress.
A school where our partnerships and community links prepare pupils for the modern world and their next steps in education, training and/or employment.
At Heath Lane Academy, we aim high and expect high standards of behaviour and academic effort from all of our pupils. We want pupils to feel happy about what they can achieve.
We believe our pupils should be good to one another, develop responsibility and be self-disciplined. Pupils know that success needs hard work, however we also ensure that pupils who are struggling to keep up receive the help and support they need to catch up from our teachers.
We are seeking to create an environment where we are all working to make children’s lives better and futures brighter. The goal is always that excellent behaviour and excellent learning should be second nature, it should simply be the way that we are. This is a mind-set that we want all our pupils to have, not just at school, but for the rest of their lives.
At Heath Lane, pupils are encouraged to be active participants in the whole community, the feel connected. They know how lucky they are, and they are encouraged to think about those who are less fortunate. We want our pupils to be compassionate, considerate and kind, always looking after those who haven’t been given the same opportunities.
