job description

Teacher of Science - September 2018 start - 1 year contract initially


As a Church of England school and member of the Cidari family we encourage an understanding of the meaning, value, purpose and significance of faith through worshipping daily, and promoting Christian values through the experience we offer all our pupils.


We set ambitious goals for our pupils regardless of background or prior attainment, believing in the limitless potential God has given to all - that all can achieve excellence through hard work, determination and resilience. Through offering a rich curriculum, combined with excellent teaching, we want all pupils to draw inspiration from all that has been thought, said and done, and to experience awe & wonder at the cultural and physical world that surrounds them. We challenge and encourage everyone to set their sights high in whatever fields they choose to pursue.


The St. George's family believes a harmonious and inclusive community, underpinned by the values of respect, honesty and kindness, acts as a civilising influence for all. We aim for a safe, healthy and happy school where people of all faiths and no faith at all are welcomed and valued; a school that pupils love and in which they openly speak about feeling loved."

St George's School, a member of Cidari Multi School Trust

St George's School (N.O.R.991) is a thriving Secondary School located in South Blackpool and a member of Cidari Multi School Trust since 2014. A Christian school is one in which the atmosphere has that kind of openness about it, that sense that people are worth spending time with, that people need time to grow, need loving attention.

As you are aware St George's is a Church school and more recently a member of the CIDARI Multi-School Trust. Our Christian ethos underpins our pursuit of academic excellence and is a defining feature of our continued success. When parents, pupils and visitors walk around the school they comment on the feel, the ethos and the values. A statement that defines the work we do is 'Modern ambition built on traditional values'.

At St George's we set our standards very high in relation to academic and pastoral support and have core non-negotiables that help everyone thrive. The School has been oversubscribed in recent years with 540 applications this year. The pace of change continues to accelerate 'under the clear vision, drive and determination of the new headteacher 'as noted by Ofsted. CIDARI, staff and pupils are determined to hold fast to the principles which have brought the school to its present success and popularity. Those principles are a belief in the worth of each child and the worth of our work as educators in a Christian school.

Our recent Ofsted commented on these Christian principles, 'spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is of the highest quality highlighting the impact of Christian values on a whole school ethos' At St George's this is not a bolt on, it is interleaved into the fabric of the school, through every system and in our vision for the future.

As headteacher of a Church school pupils feeling cared for is of paramount importance and a distinguishing feature of St George's. When I meet with or deliver key messages to parents I want them to feel confident in their choice and always say that a guiding principle is that I want pupil's to say 'I loved school today and I felt loved' Again this was reflected in Ofsted 'the school is harmonious and pupils relate well to each other, pupil's behaviour is good, they are courteous polite and feel safe and pupils know their voice is valued by teacher, leaders and the Cidari Trust.

At St George's School a teacher must:

1. Set high expectations which inspire, motivate and challenge pupils.

1 Promote good progress and outcomes by pupils.

1 Demonstrate good subject and curriculum knowledge.

1 Plan and teach well-structured lessons impart knowledge and develop understanding through effective use of lesson time.

1 Adapt teaching to respond to the strengths and needs of all pupils.
2 Make accurate and productive use of assessment.
3 Manage behaviour effectively to ensure a good and safe learning environment.

Fulfil wider professional responsibilities.
