What skills and experience we're looking for

This is an exciting opportunity for a Science Teacher to join The Snaith School. We are a proudly comprehensive and high performing school and have around 860 students on roll. Our reputation for traditional values and strong pastoral care comes from our ability to know and appreciate our students as individuals. We are rooted in our community and work with fantastic students and supportive families on a daily basis. Choosing to become a member of The Education Alliance multi-academy in 2018, has strengthened our school further as we collaborate across our schools and central team for the benefit of our students and staff.

What the school offers its staff

As a trust, we are here to make great schools and happier, stronger communities so that people have better lives. Our improvement strategy is simple – a good teacher in every classroom delivering an excellent curriculum, underpinned by effective systems for behaviour and support.

We believe that for too long in many schools, staff have been asked to choose between being seen as good at their job and being a good mum, dad, partner, son, daughter or friend. We are doing everything we can to support our staff to balance the demands of their jobs and those at home.

To support this we:

  • Trust our staff to plan, prepare and assess at the best time for them, allowing them to go off-site in their PPA
  • Have centralised our Behaviour Policy so teachers are freed up from supervising detentions
  • Demand ethical leadership built on professional trust
  • Reject fads and ensure our CPD is evidence-informed and predominantly subject-specific
  • Have reduced data collections to twice yearly
  • Do not expect staff to respond to emails outside normal working hours
  • Do not deploy staff at other trust schools unless it is at their request
We have removed the following:

  • Performance management objectives and performance-related pay
  • Lesson observations and high stakes, toxic accountability
  • Onerous marking policies
  • Requirements for daily or weekly lesson plans

Further details about the role

We know that just seeking to reduce the number of tasks staff undertake will have little effect on improving work/home balance if this happens within a toxic culture. To support this, we offer training for our leaders to ensure they are able to translate our values into behaviours which are built on the principles of dignity, respect, professionalism and integrity. Within our trust we have a strong team ethos, where we work together to support each other, and our Headteachers and Department Leaders meet regularly. Our central team try, wherever possible, to do the heavy lifting for our schools, to ease pressures and to utilise the range of professions we employ in our trust.

We offer a range of benefits, including:

  • payment of annual prescriptions
  • free eye tests
  • flexible working (with a large proportion of teaching leaders working part-time)
  • investment in training and professional development
  • access to an Employee Assistance Package
  • a Be Well programme offering counselling and mental health training and support
  • free tea and coffee in staff rooms for all staff
  • free parking
  • a workload charter that ensures we have an enjoyable, rewarding working environment where workloads are manageable

Commitment to safeguarding

The Snaith School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all employees to share this commitment. The suitability of all prospective employees will be assessed during the recruitment process in line with this commitment.

The Snaith School is part of The Education Alliance and we are proud of our reputation for academic success, traditional values and strong pastoral care. Rooted in our local community, we are a school of 860 students, educating students from Snaith and a number of surrounding villages. We are small enough to feel like a family and we pride ourselves on knowing and appreciating our students as individuals. However, we are also large to offer a wide and exciting curriculum in both KS3 and KS4, run numerous sports teams and invite the community in to school to enjoy one of our many productions and/or concerts.

We are at the heart of our community, opening doors to great opportunities and happy, successful lives.

We do this by: working hard, supporting and trusting each other to always do what is right; by being kind, helpful and considerate and seeing the best in everyone; having the highest expectations of ourselves and others.
