About the Role
Christ Church Academy is a Middle School for children aged 9 to 13 which has expanded over recent years because of its overwhelming popularity. As a Church of England Academy, Christian values such as trust, friendship and thankfulness help our children learn and grow in an atmosphere of support and acceptance. Our latest Ofsted inspection in February 2017 rated the Academy as ‘good’.
Due to the current post holder emigrating, we wish to appoint from January 2018, a forward thinking and experienced teacher of Design and Technology. An ability to teach all aspects of D&T is desirable however a strength in Food Technology would be welcomed.
Design and Technology classes are taught in ability groups and the successful candidate will have responsibility for raising the standards of pupil attainment and achievement alongside monitoring and supporting pupil progress. The department is well resourced and benefits from two specialist D&T rooms; Resistant Materials and Food and Textiles.
We want an outstanding teacher who plans inspirational and imaginative lessons to engage and excite pupils of all abilities. We also seek a person with an interest in developing STEM opportunities across the school and within the Trust.
The normal place of work would be Christ Church Academy. This Academy is part of ‘The Key Educational Trust’ and the Trust reserves the right to deploy the successful candidate to work at any other Academy within the Trust.
We can offer:
a supportive and committed Principal and Leadership Team
a school with an exciting future and desire to continuously improve
highly motivated and talented staff with a strong team ethos
a warm friendly atmosphere based on Christian and family values
