What the school offers its staff

All teachers joining Wren receive a high quality professional development experience. We hope that simply by working at the Academy, teachers will become better practitioners and that much of the best professional development will be found in working with Wren colleagues. However, we explicitly prioritise CPD with an innovative CPD programme which provides three hours of CPD per week. Within this structure is an increasing focus on engaging with the latest educational research, with many colleagues undertaking small scale research projects related to their practice. Therefore, we are looking to recruit teachers who are currently good or outstanding and who have the desire to develop further. We want to appoint colleagues who possess real curiosity about the ways in which children learn most effectively and who are always seeking to extend their practice into new areas and learning activities. It is important that Wren teachers are ambitious both for themselves and for their students. Many of our teachers have achieved career advancement within the Academy whilst others have moved on to promotion elsewhere.

At Wren you will be given time to plan and evaluate your lessons. You will be part of a learning dialogue with colleagues for which time is set aside. Most importantly of all, you will be working with young people who are talented and enthusiastic about their learning.

Other benefits of teaching at Wren:

  • Children of colleagues working at Wren for over two years are given priority for a place in Reception or Year 7

  • An exceptionally talented and mutually supportive staff team

  • Excellent professional development opportunities including support for programmes of further study and planned career development

  • Free refreshments and lunchtime allowance

  • A lower student contact ratio than the norm

  • Timetabled professional development time during the school day

  • Planning and evaluation time during the school day

Commitment to safeguarding

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, volunteers and trustees to share this commitment.

Our recruitment process follows the keeping children safe in education guidance.
