This is an exciting opportunity for someone to join our school. We
are looking for someone who is
- passionate about
high quality teaching and learning,
inspirational and caring guidance for young people and works collaboratively,
asks questions and is keen to learn.
The RS department have created a
supportive climate in which there is much cooperation. There are detailed and imaginative schemes of
work and excellent resources. RS is popular across the school with both
short-course and full course GCSE and A-Level Philosophy and Ethics taught. We
have excellent take up at GCSE.
The successful candidate will be given
full support and will be encouraged to engage in further professional development, which we believe will benefit both the
individual and the school. We have a strong induction programme, particularly
for ECTs who will be registered with George Abbot Teaching School.
The successful applicant is likely to be a form tutor and will be
required to teach KS3 humanities as part of their timetable. As the school transitioned from being a Local
Authority Community School to forming a MAT, a key element was maintaining the
full benefit and protection of the National
Pay & Conditions. Similarly, staff appointed from other academies are
not disadvantaged, e.g. by counting service towards sick pay and maternity
leave. The school takes a constructive
approach towards Performance Management & Appraisal and Pay Progression and
offers many opportunities for career development through paid responsibilities.
