Fixed term - Maternity Cover
Required from January 2021 until the return of the post holder (likely to be December 2021).
The Governors wish to appoint an excellent Teacher of A Level Economics to provide cover for a maternity leave. This post should appeal to both recently qualified teachers or to more experienced candidates, looking to develop further in an outstanding school. This is a wonderful opportunity for someone wishing to join an outstanding department and a highly successful and forward thinking school.
St Mary’s is a great place to work and provides excellent job satisfaction, as it is a very supportive environment. We provide excellent CPD for NQTs and recently qualified teachers, as well as on-going training for more experienced teachers. There are opportunities for teachers at all levels to help develop teaching and learning across the school, working collaboratively with teachers from other departments, whether as coaches, researchers or SLEs. The working environment is, therefore, a very stimulating one for all staff and is an added attraction of this post
St Mary’s is a very popular and happy school, rated Outstanding by the Diocese and Ofsted. We became an academy in 2013 and enjoy outstanding facilities in a new building, which opened in 2011. We joined the Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust in June 2020. We are also very popular with parents and are one of the most over-subscribed schools in the North-East. We have around 1,200 students in the main school and our Sixth Form, of over 200, is expected to grow to 300 in the next three years.
In addition, we are a Teaching School, increasingly engaged in school to school support, initial teacher training and CPD and leadership development across the region. As a result, further opportunities for professional development are wide-ranging and an added attraction for potential new staff.
Leadership, teaching and the climate for learning in Economics are all outstanding, as they are across the whole school.
Above all, the Governors wish to appoint a teacher with:-
•A clear commitment to nurturing and promoting the school’s distinctive ethos
•A passion for providing the best possible holistic education for all students
•A commitment to maximising achievement through excellence in teaching and learning
•An excellent track record as a classroom teacher
•The ability to promote a love of learning economics in our students
Application packs are available to download here, from our school website, or by e-mailing the Director of Finance and Support Services, email@example.com. If you require any further information about the post, please do not hesitate to contact Suzanne Fisher, Acting Deputy Headteacher on 0191 215 3260
Closing date: 9.00am Wednesday 2nd December 2020. Interviews are likely to be held later that week or early the following week.
The school is fully committed to safeguarding and the welfare of children and young people. This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
