TEACHER OF ENGLISH

Teacher of English - September 2019

The Sir John Colfox Academy

This is a superb opportunity for a talented practitioner who wants to work in a warm and welcoming school which values its staff highly. English is a very popular subject in our high-performing Sixth Form, and the subject area sits above or in line with every one of the new progress and attainment measures at Key Stage 4. We are looking to build on this success and are interested in teachers who have high expectations of what their students can achieve, and who believe in the power of their subject to make a difference in students’ lives. We are committed to managing workload and enabling teachers to focus on their core purpose; delivering high-quality learning opportunities for students. We offer a centralised behaviour for learning system which reduces bureaucracy and enables teachers to focus on delivery without interruption. In March 2018 we received a full OFSTED inspection and were judged to be ‘Good’ in all areas. If you love English and enjoy sharing your passion with young people, we will help nurture your talent and support your career as you progress. The breadth of subjects within the department means that there are always opportunities for colleagues to pursue areas of interest.

This is a great time to join our school as we consolidate links with the three feeder primary schools which form part of our Multi-Academy Trust (The Minerva Learning Trust). We work closely with colleagues across the MLT, sharing ideas about assessment, literacy, numeracy and other areas of pedagogy.  We are members of the Jurassic Coast Teaching Alliance, which enables us to participate in a diverse range of initiatives, including the Women in Leadership programme and CPD seminars from notable speakers such as Deborah Myhill and Daisy Christodoulou. We are an outwardly facing school in a beautiful part of the country and have strong links with our local community as a Rights Respecting School.  

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment.  If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the Headteacher, David Herbert, herbertd@colfox.dorset.sch.uk or 01308 422291.  Visits to the school are also warmly accepted.
