At Carew Academy we take staff wellbeing seriously – healthy and happy staff make great teachers! If you are considering a new challenge in your career then get in touch to find out what makes Carew Academy different. We welcome applicants from all teaching backgrounds to join our team on the journey to Outstanding; NQTs are particularly welcome and will benefit from the close support of a small school environment.
Carew Academy is a Good school, with an Outstanding judgement for Behaviour and Safety, for pupils between the ages of 7 and 18 who have moderate learning difficulties or a diagnosis of ASD. With 220 students we have a unique family ethos and staff are able to get to know every child as an individual!
To support staff wellbeing we have ‘Marking Mondays’ and ‘Wellbeing Wednesdays’. This means we focus on getting all of our marking done during school time, an achievable task with a maximum of 10 students in each class. Each half term we have a Wellbeing Wednesday these range from afternoon tea, to yoga lessons or a quiz with plenty of chocolate!
Carew has recently had its application to build a brand new school building approved, so this is an exciting time to be joining us with an increasing pupil roll and lots of opportunities for career development within our wider family of Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust.
We are looking for someone with drive, creativity and a passion for teaching and supporting young people to achieve their best. Your teaching background is not important; what is important is that you have high expectations, love a challenge and have a determination to make a difference to the lives of our superb students.
Our curriculum is really different too. Our Lower School students have enrichment activities every afternoon which include Rock Climbing, Swimming, Horse Riding and a huge range of other activities, our Middle School students can chose from a wide variety of options and our Upper School students have a curriculum focused around using skills in real life.
We are looking for someone who would be willing to teach Physical Education to students from Year 3 to Year 13, support the development of high quality Schemes of Work, and contribute to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme. In particular, a willingness to develop our extracurricular programme is essential.
If you love your subject and have a passion for supporting students with SEN to make rapid progress then Carew Academy is the place for you!
