Teacher of MFL job summary

We are seeking to appoint an innovative and dedicated teacher to join our wonderful modern languages department. The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic and skilled practitioner who is able to inspire and champion language learning across the school. We are happy to consider both part and full time applications. Both French and Spanish are taught across the Key Stages.

There is a strong emphasis on raising achievement in innovative ways based firmly in research and a genuine commitment to collaboration and professional development at Severn Vale. This is a school that believes in ‘growing great teachers’. We have a very high staff retention rate and believe that our focus on staff - who are our greatest asset - is one of our strengths. To enable our teachers to thrive we have:

• no centralised teaching and learning policies, but increased time for departments to develop subject specific pedagogy
• no “Ofsted speak” at all – we do what we do for our students and the school community
• a firm belief in “more feedback, less marking”
• limited data collections (once a year following summative assessments)
• a research and coaching based culture
• a centralised behaviour management system with high levels of support from senior leaders and superb pastoral teams
• time and space for staff to develop in a way which suits them as individuals

Interviews will be held on Friday 27 May.
