For the Summer term 2021 we are seeking to recruit an exceptional teacher of Art to join our dynamic and forwarding thinking Creative arts team. This appointment represents an excellent opportunity for a highly skilled and enthusiastic practitioner who shares our school values of kindness, ambition and diligence, and who can inspire students and help us to raise attainment in this subject area.
The Art department delivers a diverse and engaging curriculum across key stage 3, resulting in growing numbers at key stage 4 for both the Art and Design and Photography GCSE courses. Students are engaged and increasingly invested in the art curriculum both in the classroom and through extracurricular opportunities. The successful candidate will be able to inspire our students with contemporary ideas and techniques through a variety of medias and materials. They will engage in learning outside of the classroom and help us to continue our vision to develop resilient and independent learners in Art. An ability to teach GCSE Photography is not essential.
This is an exciting time to join The Art Department at Crofton; we are establishing links locally through a variety of artists and galleries and working with pupils to access art in the community more often. We have new and improved IT access for all aspects of our curriculum and a growing access to printing techniques with in house expertise. This is showing success through the quality of work produced by pupils and their enthusiasm for the subject.
Crofton School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service checks along with other relevant employment checks.
