The Malling School is an extremely positive, happy and caring place for young people to learn. We are a small stand-alone foundation school and are very proud of our wonderful students and talented staff. We are fully committed to continually developing our teaching at The Malling School. We have no formal lesson observations and a strong open culture of improving our teaching together through regular low stakes developmental learning walks.

Our strategy to improve outcomes for our students is not through short term unsustainable Y11 intervention but through developing our curriculum together and continually reflecting and improving our daily practice in every classroom for every year group.

We have a very strong behaviour for learning policy. Low-level disruption is not tolerated allowing teachers to do what we do best, teach. All staff receive regular informal behaviour for learning training to ensure we are consistent in our application of the policy. Students are very clear around our high expectations of behaviour and attitude in every classroom. The key to the success of the policy is the proactive targeting of poor work ethic and low-level disruption by every teacher. Students that slow down the pace of learning are transferred out of the lesson and collected by our senior leaders. The leadership team ensures that all our improvement strategies are clearly communicated to staff, effectively piloted, evaluated and well thought through. Our key principle when introducing any new initiative is to ensure that there is no unnecessary workload and that it has a high impact on student progress.

We can offer you:

• Opportunities to teach your specialist subject to GCSE, Level 3 BTEC and International Baccalaureate Level

• Opportunities for accelerated promotion for outstanding teachers

• Extensive and individualised professional development program that focusses on both pedagogy and subject knowledge

• A new school with outstanding facilities

• Robust behaviour systems

• No formal observations – instead Developmental Learning Walks with ongoing feedback, helping you and your department to continuously develop

• CPD starts as soon as you are appointed
