We are looking for a History teacher with personality, someone who wants
to own their classroom and have vibrant and authentic relationships with their
students and colleagues. We want teachers who are conscientious, enjoy working
with children and love to see students succeed. Do you want
the chance to develop a history curriculum that has real intent and changes
students’ lives and knowledge of the world? Do you want to work in a
research-informed school that has the vision to support students through
creating conditions in the classroom that make learning more effective? You
will get the chance to really think about what makes for great teaching. You
will work hard, but you will also become a better teacher and change children's
lives. The History department is open-minded and driven, and always
looking for ways to improve. At
Farnham Heath End School, staff work together in departments to create shared
resources, through our fortnightly subject development CPD sessions.
This is an
excellent opportunity to join Farnham Heath End School. Our focus has been to
engage teachers with their own professional development, through focusing on
how research can be applied to in the classroom. There has been a focus on
retrieval practice, supporting students’ working memory and providing students
with clear opportunities for deliberate practice. For learning to be most
effective, the strategy has also been on creating high expectations and
embedded routines that avoid distraction, so that the subject content is the
main attraction. Another example of using research across the school, is that
each department has their own feedback and assessment policy, whereby written
comments, and a specific frequency of feedback is not mandatory, and a focus on
live feedback using a visualiser is a preference.
