The Winstanley School is an 11-16 Leicestershire school situated in the heart of the Braunstone Town community. The school is part of the LiFE Multi-Academy Trust of which Bosworth Academy is the lead institution.
We are seeking to appoint into a job sharing role, a committed and enthusiastic Leader of MFL, who is also a Spanish teacher. The successful candidate will have a real passion for their subject and will translate this effectively to the students in their care.
This role offers candidates an exciting opportunity to contribute to the Trust’s relentless drive for excellence across the school. The role is primarily based at The Winstanley School. We do, however, encourage the opportunity to develop professionally within different contexts and situations, working in partnership with Bosworth Academy and other partner schools across the Trust.
Spanish has enjoyed a renaissance at Winstanley and is also a popular subject at GCSE. The MFL department is small, consisting of the existing Head of MFL and a full time teacher of French.
Spanish is taught for four hours per fortnight at KS3, and for five hours per fortnight at GCSE. Classes are mixed ability in year 7 and 8. At GCSE, there is of course a range of abilities.
The department will occasionally run trips to Europe and there is an expectation that the successful candidate would support the current Head of MFL in organising these activities.
The MFL department is enthusiastic and motivated to support the students in MFL. It continues to build an engaging and inclusive curriculum and the successful candidate will be expected to play a full role in the life of supporting the department in this endeavour.
“This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment”/
