Whitefriars School is a fully integrated 3 to 18 all-through school and we offer a fabulous education for our local community. In May 2018 our school was judged by OFSTED to be outstanding.
We believe that anyone can learn anything and the growth mind-set underpins everything we do. We do not believe that some pupils are bright and that others are not. We believe in the limitless capacity for everyone to achieve great things. We believe that what we become and what we achieve comes from great teaching, hard work and fantastic support.
We are looking for a positive, dynamic and resilient Art and Design Technology teacher to join our fantastic team in our primary section. This teacher will teach Art and Design Technology to all primary section pupils during teachers’ PPA time. You will be part of the through-school Art and Design Technology team and work collaboratively with primary section class teachers and secondary section Art and Design Technology teachers.
Our pupils make rapid progress and achieve academic excellence in an environment of love and care. Our school is a strong family where expectations are high, values are positive and children are treasured. Our goal is to equip our pupils with the knowledge, skills and character to lead successful lives.
We provide pupils with a curriculum of the highest quality. We have new state-of-the art buildings with a wide range of extensive facilities. Our pedagogical approach is rooted in the science of how children learn. We ask lots of questions, we explain in small steps, we link to prior learning and we guide first practice. Our pupils think hard about their learning. We take an individualised ‘next steps’ approach on the journey to mastery of English, reading and mathematics skills. We read a lot because it has a profound impact on educational outcomes.
Our teachers get to know the pupils as individuals and build meaningful relationships that last. We ensure that all of our pupils feel they belong. We explicitly teach our pupils to live by positive shared values and to hold these deep in their hearts. We are a Rights Respecting Gold accredited school. This creates our wonderful learning environments and great behaviour. We offer a wide range of innovative clubs.
