Teacher with TLR2 responsibility - Forward Education Trust job summary

This is an exciting time for the school, which has benefitted from significant investment in the last year with further work planned to improve the indoor and outdoor learning spaces. Within the school staff, we are dynamically developing our leadership structure and responsibilities and the introduction of this role is part of that development. You will join our journey of improvement to play a key part in transforming the lives of our pupils.

We are looking for highly effective, creative and inspirational classroom practitioners with the dedication, vision and drive to support the leadership of a Curriculum area within our structure which includes:
• The World Around Me and Technology (Scientific Technologies, Understanding the World and Creative Arts)

• Literacy (Reading, Writing) and Communication
• Personal Development and the Wellbeing Curriculum (Emotional and Physical)

Your professional development will also be a key priority and you will have the support of a network of highly skilled and experienced senior leaders alongside the opportunities that will inevitably present themselves from being part of a developing trust.
