Teacher of Religious Education

A fantastic opportunity is awaiting you; the chance to design and shape innovative and creative
pedagogical practice in a brand new all-through academy.  NQTs welcome to apply.

King’s Academy Binfield (KAB) is now looking to appoint a highly motivated, dynamic and
innovative teacher of Religious Education to play an intrinsic role in our new all-through
academy in Bracknell Forest.

Our all-through school opened in a superb new building in September 2018 with 120 year 7
students, and we have grown year on year, with 150 students currently in year 8 and 180 in
year 7, and nursery through to year 3 students in our two primary phases, KAB and King’s
Academy Oakwood (KAO). The academy will grow year on year to a roll of over 1800
students, aged 3-18.

The Humanities department has a positive presence in the school community, with a small but
rapidly growing, committed team of teachers. The faculty continues to progress, including the
exciting task of creating a broad and challenging RE curriculum for our students. Staff
development is seen as a crucial aspect of this, with subject specific CPD being offered,
including NATRE membership.

Religious Education forms a key part of students’ education with KS4 students opting for
GCSE Religious Studies and/or continuing core RE. As the department continues to grow,
there will likely be opportunities for curriculum leadership, with the possibility of advancing this
to September 2021 for the right candidate. It will also be the case that there will be other
opportunities for leadership roles within the academy as the school expands. Potential is as
important as experience.

Applicants should be excellent classroom teachers and have the ability to motivate, inspire
and lead students to excel, with experience of producing successful outcomes at GCSE being
beneficial. The successful candidate will be a team player and will get stuck in and involve
themselves in the wider aspects of academy life. A genuine commitment to our ‘whatever it
takes’ ethos is essential to enable every young person at KAB and KAO to thrive.
KAB and KAO are part of the King’s Group Academies MAT, led by a team of former and
current Ofsted ‘outstanding’ head teachers and Her Majesty’s Inspectors (HMI). Please note

King’s Academy Binfield and King’s Academy Oakwood are committed to safeguarding and
promoting the welfare of children and young students and expects all staff to share this
commitment. The successful applicant will need to undertake an Enhanced DBS check.

Unfortunately at this time, visits to us may not possible, however we would be delighted to arrange an informal chat, so please do contact in the first instance, Amber Walker, PA to the Executive Principal at amber.walker@kingsacademies.uk

If it is not possible to hold interviews, references will be called first and then telephone interviews will be held.
