Salary on Lead Practitioner Scale 5 points to be negotiated

Do you have the leadership and vision to raise standards within English and across the Curriculum at The English Martyrs School and Sixth Form College?

We are searching for experienced, successful and inspiring individuals to take a lead in raising standards of teaching and learning within our school, with the goal of narrowing attainment and achievement gaps. You will be responsible for raising standards in your lead subject (English), but also in raising standards in the other departments through taking a strategic lead in terms of provision and outcomes

As a Specialist Lead Practitioner, you will have the opportunity to take a lead role in whole school coaching and mentoring, developing systems and sharing best practice across your school. You will plan and provide intervention sessions for groups of targeted students, for example our students of highest ability and those in receipt of Pupil Premium to ensure they make the best possible progress.

This role offers an outstanding career development opportunity for someone who wants to increase their impact and make a real difference to a large number of students; an opportunity that will provide the right individual with a firm and substantial opportunity to impact upon the leadership of the school. To support you in your development we can provide a comprehensive network of partners and a personalised programme of continuing professional development.

In return, we want someone who continually seeks to develop their own practice, who maintains an expert knowledge of training and research and who can apply their learning in relation to ‘teaching standards’ and outstanding classroom practice. If you are passionate about learning, if you are passionate about leadership, if you are passionate about the success of young people then we would welcome your application.
