This is an exciting opportunity to join a small community-based school in North Leeds. Leeds Jewish Free School offers pupils not only an outstanding academic education but also many opportunities to enjoy a superb range of extra-curricular activities in a nurturing, aspirational setting. The school is a thriving and friendly community of approximately 125 pupils aged 11-16 and shares a campus with an Early Years setting, an established primary school and a youth community hub.
The English Department consists of two members of staff and has responsibility for the English Literature and Language curriculum and literacy policy. The department has consistently achieved good results at GCSE and an unusually high degree of flexibility over course content. You will be teaching all year groups and many of the classes have less than 20 students per group.
This role is key to the delivery of English in school as the only full-time member of the English Department. There is a high degree of autonomy and limited collaboration within school although we do have close links with other English Departments through the Red Kite Association group of schools. The successful candidate will be someone with previous experience of curriculum management and development
The Leeds Jewish Free School is a fully inclusive school and welcomes applications from all ethnic and religious groups.
Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. The details of the DBS Code of Conduct can be found in the how to apply section.
We promote diversity and want a workforce which reflects the population of Leeds.
