Full time/ part time will be considered
Required: September 2021
Salary: MPR and UPR
We are looking for a well-qualified, committed and enthusiastic Teacher to join our successful 11-18 comprehensive school. This is an excellent opportunity for a passionate colleague to join a strong Inclusion Team. The post is focused on the academic transition between Year 6 and Year 7, with a specific remit to ensure that all students can read, write and are numerate to a level that ensures full access our irresistible and challenging curriculum i.e. no child is left behind. Applications are welcome from NQTs or experienced teachers with primary and/or secondary experience. Visits to the school are welcome, by prior arrangement and in line with national Covid restrictions.
The Inclusion Team
The Inclusion Team is a strong team of committed specialist teachers and support staff. The team is managed by the School Leader: Inclusion.
Most students, for most of their schooling, access the mainstream curriculum. On occasion, a more personalised curriculum or intensive support is required. Faculties and pastoral teams are primarily responsible for meeting these needs.
For particular aspects of their education a proportion of students need access to specialist intervention and support services. This may take the form of literacy support, counselling or services relating to specific learning difficulties. Sometimes students access a discrete number of services for specific purposes. However, some students with complex needs may access a range of services and there is therefore a need for co-ordinating intervention for that individual.
To join The Henry Box School is to join a family – staff and pupils who have the courage to do things differently, if that’s what it takes.
Here we think deeply about how we can have the biggest impact on pupils. In a world where the algorithms of life give us more of the same, we believe education has the role to give children something different. We continually ask ourselves the following five questions:
- Are we securing equity?
- Is our leadership driving school improvement?
- Is our curriculum irresistible?
- Are we research informed?
- Are we deploying resources effectively?
All schools in our Trust have a culture of compassion underpinned by high expectations and understanding. We have three rules: ready, respectful and safe. We are a truly inclusive organization and passionately believe that every child has a right to mainstream education.
If you decide you want to be part of our dynamic team, we look forward to receiving your completed application form.
Closing date: 21st May 2021
In the meantime, if you have any queries about this role, please do not hesitate to contact the HR Team. A visit to the school can be arranged provided social distancing can be maintained throughout to ensure everyone’s safety.
The Henry Box School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
All successful candidates are required to undertake an enhanced DBS check and other relevant pre-employment checks including references from present and previous employers, explanations for employment gaps will need to be explained fully.
We are an inclusive Trust and welcome applications from all groups including those that are often under represented in workforces including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.
