Teacher of MFL job summary

We currently teach French to all Key Stage 3 students with an ambition to offer additional languages such as Spanish. You will be joining at an exciting time as we look to expand the number of students studying a language at Key Stage 4 with a positive trend of progress and attainment.

The department is well resourced with a range of learning materials and enjoys a dedicated set of iPads for students to participate in online learning. Teachers are committed to ensuring students enjoy language learning and are successful. The department are excited to re-launch trips and educational visits, and make more cultural connections.

The current Key Stage 3 curriculum covers full range of content set out in the national curriculum and includes a range of engaging topics, ensuring students are prepared for the next stage whether that be study of the language at GCSE and beyond or in its practical use in future careers and/or travel.  

At Key Stage 4, students follow the AQA specification. Both retrieval practice and metacognition feature heavily across all schemes of work. In addition, the department is outward thinking and collaborates with schools locally, nationally and across the Trust to ensure students receive the best possible language experience.  

We have strong links with our main Primary feeder schools and are actively working to improve MFL teaching at Key Stage 2 to support transition and long-term attainment and engagement in languages. Furthermore, the department supports students to achieve GCSEs in heritage languages, with popular subjects including GCSE Polish, Arabic and Urdu.  

MFL is an integral part of the curriculum at Moor End Academy. The Teacher of MFL post is crucial to the development of depth and breadth within the subject area. As a Teacher of MFL, you will be organised, enthusiastic and creative with strong subject knowledge and motivated to meet the high expectations of the academy and the department.
