Job summary

Teacher of MFL
(French & Spanish)
MPS/UPS

Required for April/September 2020

Our school is increasingly becoming the first choice school for parents. As a result, we are currently oversubscribed. We have robust behavioural systems and Developmental Learning Walks, rather than formal observations. All of which allow a teacher to flourish and do what they do best – teach!

We have a small, but rapidly expanding, MFL department led by an inspirational Head of Department who is passionate about raising aspirations and developing a love of languages in our pupils. This is an exciting time to be joining our team and we are seeking an enthusiastic Teacher of MFL who is passionate about making a difference to children’s lives.

What we can offer you:
• The scope to instill a passion for learning languages by teaching KS3 and KS4 with potentially the opportunity to teach at KS5 for the right candidate, in the future
• Robust behaviour systems
• No formal observations – instead Developmental Learning Walks with ongoing feedback, helping you to continuously develop as a teacher
• CPD starts as soon as you are appointed
• A new building with great facilities and a very pleasant location in Kent, including our own lake
The successful candidate will be:
• An excellent and innovative Teacher of French with the ability to teach Spanish up to KS3
• Someone who does whatever it takes to ensure that every pupil has the best chance to achieve their potential
• ICT literate and proactively uses ICT to enhance their teaching
• An excellent team player with the ability to work under pressure
• A qualified teacher (we welcome applications from unqualified teachers, who are keen to become a qualified teacher, but as a Foundation School we have an obligation to appoint a qualified teacher wherever possible)
This is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious teacher, keen to join an expanding school. We welcome visits and would be delighted to show you around our School to fully appreciate our excellent learning environment.
