Up to one year fixed term contract, or until cessation of the maternity leave (whichever is sooner). Applications for part time working considered. Applications from NQTs and more experienced teachers welcome
We are seeking to appoint a teacher of KS3 English and History to cover a maternity leave. The successful candidate will join a vibrant and high performing team, and be passionate about bringing culture and literature to life for the students they teach. In return for your hard work and dedication, we offer students who are keen to learn, a dedicated classroom to be your base, and extensive resourcing and curriculum planning to work from in both subject areas.
Easthampstead Park Community School is a vibrant, cutting edge learning environment. Our school culture marries unswervingly high academic expectations with excellent pastoral care and support. The concept of community is at the very heart of our vision; we believe in a three-way partnership between parents, teachers and students, and are proud of our setting and the local community. Teaching and learning are at the very heart of our school and drives everything we do. An action-research based approach to teaching and learning has been central to our improvement journey in recent years, and we wholeheartedly believe in investing in staff’s continued professional development in the same way that we expect our teachers to passionately invest in our students.
This is a very exciting time to join us. In recent years, we have made excellent progress, and at our last OFSTED inspection (June 2016), we were rated as ‘good’ in all areas.
“Since her appointment, the Headteacher has focused on making sure that all pupils feel safe, happy and confident so that they learn well. This did not happen overnight but it is now apparent in pupils’ much-improved behaviour and their positive response to the good teaching they receive.”
We aspire to be rated ‘outstanding’, driven by a core belief that all of our students deserve nothing but the best possible teaching and support in order to be happy, healthy and successful. We aim to deliver the best quality teaching and learning in a school where staff and students have respect for, and pride in themselves, their school and their community.
If you feel you have the necessary skills, mind-set and determination to join us on our journey towards ‘outstanding,’ we would very much like to hear from you.
We offer a comprehensive package of benefits to all teaching staff, including access to Perkbox which provides teaching staff with money off in various High Street stores and with a wide range of online retailers.
