Here is what they are seeking:
We seek a dynamic, highly motivated and inspirational English teacher to join us in September 2021, who will also take on the role of 2nd in department, responsible for leading the continuing development of KS3 English.
Over the past two years the English department has undergone a period of rapid improvement in which all department policies have been reviewed and modernised. This includes developing a new set of assessment criteria for reading and writing that underpins the KS3 curriculum and bridges the gap between KS3 and GCSE, KS3 assessments that mirror the demands of GCSE, an updated feedback policy that aims to ensure students understand their targets and how to improve, along with many other improvements. As KS3 lead, you will review the current KS3 Improvement Plan as well as our newly created resources and will be responsible for using this plan to drive further development in the department.
As a collaborative team, who work together efficiently and will always support each other, we look forward to welcoming an ambitious KS3 lead as they seek to improve the department. We offer personalised induction and support programmes for new staff, with many opportunities for professional development.
This is an excellent career opportunity for a colleague who firmly believes in the entitlement of young people to a rich, engaging and stimulating English curriculum. Working within a vibrant and highly successful faculty, you will be an outstanding classroom teacher who is totally committed to the progress of all students in our popular and fully comprehensive school.
You will have an unwavering belief in the potential of every student, and a contagious enthusiasm for your subject which will excite and motivate all students to achieve their very best. You will:
Engage, inspire and enthuse students through a genuine passion for your subject and for learning
Have high expectations of student achievement and behaviour
Be a great classroom practitioner
Be forward thinking, creative and well organised
Be enthusiastic, resourceful and fully committed to securing student progress.
This popular and successful 11–18 school stands in beautiful open countryside on the edge of Beaminster, a Dorset town with great charm and historic interest, just 6 miles from the World Heritage Jurassic Coast.
We have a joint Sixth Form with our partner school, the Sir John Colfox Academy in Bridport, offering a broad and developing range of courses including English Language and Literature. Sixth Form numbers are buoyant and our results are some of the best in Dorset. Knowledge of, or an interest in, teaching A level English Language would be beneficial although certainly not necessary.
Visits to the school are welcomed and encouraged, and the Head of English will be happy to meet with you. Please do get in touch if you would like to arrange this.
We value the diversity of our workforce and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
Beaminster School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants are required to have appropriate medical and enhanced DBS clearance.
Completed applications should be returned to Mrs. Nicola Chalkley by the closing date Tuesday 20th April 2021
