What skills and experience we're looking for
We are seeking to appoint an outstanding Teacher of Music, with the skills and knowledge to teach pupils with challenge and passion.
At Mercia School, lessons are:
- Exceptionally challenging for all pupils, no matter their ability or need
- Taught in a traditional way that gives pupils time to practise and master content
- Crucial to raising aspirations so all pupils have a successful career and a happy life
- Preparing pupils for the challenges at GCSE and A-level, from day one
Your role will be to teach excellent lessons, promoting a love of music and committing yourself wholeheartedly to the vision of the school. You will also contribute to the elective programme. We are a dedicated team and we want to recruit someone who can help us deliver an unrivalled curriculum.
What the school offers its staff
We passionately believe in promoting the arts, sport, languages and STEM through our thriving elective programme, as part of our extended school day. These experiences coupled with our curriculum, broaden our pupils’ horizons. The character traits our children present are very important to us. Therefore, we give our pupils the opportunities to show commitment, determination, resilience and independence, whilst expecting them to be kind and compassionate to one another. Our children open doors for one another, they say ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’ They address teachers with respect. During Family Lunch, they serve one another and show appreciation and gratitude. This is all part of the Mercia way.
I expect that teachers teach from the front with excellent subject knowledge. Our classrooms are arranged in rows with pupils learning core knowledge. We value our teachers’ passion for developing their specialism by ensuring they have time and energy to be reflective of their teaching. A whole school team approach to improving practice ensures we have high levels of consistency, which allows us to drill down to the minutiae that matter.
Alongside this, we offer a strong commitment to reducing workload, with staff timetables directed to ensure efficient management of time, allocated CPD time and a robust feedback policy which avoids excessive marking. We do what we can to ensure teachers have time and energy to teach.
