Position: Permanent, full-time (NQTs welcome to apply).
Start Date: September 2018
Annual Salary: WLFS main pay scale
Application deadline: 16 February 2018
The West London Free School aims to provide all pupils, no matter what their background, with a classical liberal education. We have a distinctive school culture built on a passion for bringing rich, demanding and inspiring knowledge to pupils of all abilities. We treasure the subject knowledge of staff, we value their passion for continuing to grow as subject specialists and we support their subject-specific development. We do not believe in a one size-fits-all approach to teaching across the whole curriculum. Subjects differ in important ways. We do not jump on the latest educational trend, embrace gimmicks or impose generic pedagogies. You will never be asked to develop a ‘growth mindset’ or to use Blooms taxonomy. There is a firm and fair approach to behaviour, systematically supported by senior staff: all pupil detentions are centralised and run by senior staff every day. Teachers are therefore able to prioritise the planning and teaching of subject knowledge. School leaders walk the talk: we all teach, love our subjects, understand workload pressures and are highly visible around school. We offer a range of employment benefits including interest-free season ticket loans and subsidised staff lunches.
Our core belief is that every child is entitled to a classical liberal education, no matter what their background or ability. We place a heavy emphasis on the acquisition of core knowledge through the study of traditional subjects. Our pupils in each year group are enthusiastic and making excellent progress in all three Science specialisms.
Key characteristics of the role include:
The West London Free School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.
The successful candidate will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
