Teacher of Science

0.8 (26 hours per week), from September 2024

Maternity cover from September 2024 to Easter 2025 (dependant on candidate’s planned return – some work in the summer term may be required)

The Directors of Blackdown Education Partnership are seeking to appoint a Teacher of Science to join our Outstanding school from September 2024. This vacancy would be particularly suitable for an ECT, but RQTs and more experienced teachers are also welcome to apply.

Uffculme is a flourishing, popular, high performing School located on the beautiful Devon/Somerset border with easy motorway access to the regional centres of Taunton and Exeter. We are fully comprehensive and committed to inclusion. The February 2014 OfSTED inspection classed the School as ‘Outstanding’. In 2022 our Progress 8 score was +0.51 when all qualifications were counted (inc those from early entry in 2021) and our Basics E&M 9-5 was 73% and Basics E&M 9-4 was 87%, maintaining our track-record as being one of the highest performing non-selective schools. Consequently, we have received many national awards and accolades over recent times in recognition of the quality of the education provided here at Uffculme.

Within this context, the Science Department is one of the flagship departments of the school with typically over 70% of students opting to study separate sciences and 80% of students achieving Grades 9-4.

Whilst our examination results speak for themselves, they don’t tell the whole story. They are based on a culture of high expectations; exceptional levels of student participation and active involvement in the life of the school; and great relationships between staff and students. We make no apologies for wanting it all as a school: happy staff, happy students, outstanding results, amazing opportunities, and a culture which rewards and values success in all its forms.

The successful candidate will be, or have the potential to be, an outstanding teacher who inspires a keen interest in Science in students and who is able to deliver the exceptional results which we have come to expect from our students. A full contribution to our extensive extra-curricular programme will be expected. In return we can offer you support from an excellent team of colleagues where morale is high; fantastic facilities and young people who genuinely want to learn.

The closing date is 9.30am Monday 22nd April; interviews to be held in week of 29th April
