Lead Teacher of Music – EBOR ACADEMY FILEY

MPS 1 – MP6

plus TLR 2A £2873  

September 2021 start  

 At Ebor Academy Filey we offer an exciting career choice and a real opportunity for giving ambitious teachers and leaders the chance to influence our school and its community for the better.  

We are part of the North Yorkshire Opportunity Area that is prioritising improvements to education and numeracy and literacy outcomes, alongside a drive to recruit and retain high-quality, motivated teachers to the area. Teachers on the North Yorkshire Coast will have unique opportunities to engage in additional professional and leadership development through this programme, as well as access to fully-funded national professional qualifications.

 Ebor Academy Filey
 is a vibrant, successful 11-16 Academy and proud to serve the coastal communities around Filey. Over the last two years our school has been transformed under solid and sustained leadership – and we are now a host school to Teach First, a lead school within Ebor Academy Trust and a coaching school for Ambition Institute.

Many of our staff commute from both within the East Riding, North Yorkshire and across our coastal communities. As an inclusive school we have the highest aspiration for our students to achieve their very best and grow as individuals and as members of their community.

Staff development, creating a climate of independent learning and embedding a culture where teachers and support professionals can thrive and take risks with teaching and learning are all very much part of our school.

Our opportunity
 We are looking to appoint a teaching colleague to join us as our new Lead Teacher of Music. As a small secondary Music plays an important part in our curriculum – and as a subject it is popular and well resourced. Our department has its own purpose built and spacious block with a large classroom and 4 well-resourced practice rooms (2 with acoustic pianos).

As our new teacher you will bring your subject to life with access to a baby grand piano, 15 electric keyboards, 11 PCs running Sibelius Ultimate, Djembe drums and Samba drums to name but a few!

There are a number of students who have instrumental and singing lessons provided by the instrumental teaching service. It goes without saying that we will ensure you are supported as you join our teaching team.

Although you will be part of our teacher community, you will be our only Music specialist teacher.

The subject has huge potential to grow further at KS4. Specialist knowledge, confidence to teach a standalone subject and a passion for choirs, music concerts and instruments will be part of your DNA as a teacher.

We are looking for a Teacher of Music who:

 ·       Is passionate about teaching and has a creative and flexible approach for all key stages.
 ·       Will model best practice teaching and learning across the department and support the development of quality
          teaching in the department.  
 ·       Will support, challenge and engage a diverse cohort of students, enriching their learning experience,
         maximising their potential and raising attainment
 ·       Will play a key role in leading aspects of faculty CPD. In the last three years over 20 staff have been put
         through a national professional qualification and many subject departments benefit from Lead Practitioners,
         core subject specialists and involvement through the Ebor Hope Teaching Alliance.

 What we offer:
 ·       A regular and bespoke CPD programme as soon as you are appointed. 
 ·       We do not grade observations; we believe that trusting our teachers with autonomy to improve creates a
         strong, vibrant staff culture.
 ·       A knowledge-based curriculum in which teachers are encouraged to teach without constraint. 
 ·       Benefits package through our Trust We actively welcome interest colleagues at all levels with a Music
         background as well as from more experienced colleagues looking to further develop their career.

Visits are actively welcomed for you to meet our Headteacher Terry Cartmail to discuss the above and shape the next stage of your career.

 Join our team and build a wonderful career in a school and Trust you will become passionate about with students you love to help learn.
