Staff Vacancies


Teacher of Science and the willingness/ability to teach Mathematics

School: Woodeaton Manor School

Start date: 1 September 2018

Position: Teacher of Science and the willingness/ability to teach Mathematics

Salary: Main Scale/UPS + SEN Point 1

Accountable to: SLT

Contract: Full time


Woodeaton Manor School is a daytime and residential Foundation Special School that offers a nurturing environment for 84 pupils, all of whom have a Statement of Special Educational Need, with profound emotional and social difficulties in Key Stages 2/3/4/5. A large proportion of pupils have mental health issues and require extended support from a range of multi-professional services.

We are seeking to appoint a talented, inspirational and very innovative teacher of science who also has the ability and willingness to teach mathematics. The appointee will be firmly committed to working with young people, their parents/carers, multi-agency professionals and colleagues, who puts our pupils first and in doing so has a commitment to improving the life chances of our pupils and their families. Our school seeks to enhance the opportunities and challenges offered to our pupils both within and outside the curriculum, and appoint a teacher who is passionate about their work.

The successful candidate will be able to input their own ideas and strengths into the development of the science and maths curriculum which is a real opportunity to shape the innovative and growing curriculum within our school. The ideal candidate:

  • Will have excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to establish strong relationships with all stakeholders and collaborate and work with colleagues and other relevant professionals within and beyond the school
  • Will have an excellent knowledge of the upcoming specification changes at KS4, particularly in Science and how this will filter down to KS3, and participate in arrangements of preparing pupils for external examinations
  • Will take responsibility for a form group, maintaining an overview of teaching, standards and achievement and liaising with their parents/carers
  • Will raise achievement and deliver excellent academic outcomes
  • Can model excellence in the classroom
  • Has the training, skills and experience to make a significant impact on the quality of teaching and learning
  • Is able to evaluate and improve their impact and effectiveness
  • Will provide an active link with other key colleagues to support the research, development, innovation and evaluation of teaching and learning across the school


The successful candidate will have access to considerable support and training, in all aspects of their role, ensuring that they are able to develop our pupils appropriately whilst being able to progress their own practice. The role would be suitable for an NQT or a more experienced teacher looking for their next challenge.

Fundamentally, we are looking for an outstanding teacher who is as passionate about reducing the barriers to learning as they are about their subject knowledge and delivery.

The school location is superb and our pupils do their absolute best.

Given the very special challenges and opportunities that the position offers, applications will only be considered from candidates who have visited the school.

If you are interested, then please take the opportunity to visit our website to discover more about our very special school.

Following your visit, we would ask you to complete an application form.

The closing date is Wednesday, 28th March 2018 with interviews to follow week commencing 16th April 2018
