Are you a leader and a learner? Do you thrive working as part of a team to achieve a common goal? Are you hardworking, passionate and committed to ensuring all our students maximise their potential? Are you curious and excited by our #LiveLoveLearn philosophy? If so, then we would love to hear from you!
We will always put students at the centre of everything we do. We are proud of our reputation as a student centred learning community. At Royds, every learner is an individual with a distinctive personality and characteristics. Staff well-being is very important to us. Happy contented staff leads to a happy and productive school. As part of our LiveLoveLearn ethos we strive to create a climate where staff are trained well enough so they can leave, but valued highly enough that they don’t want to. Royds is a happy and vibrant place to work; ‘staff morale is high’. (Ofsted 2018). We place significant emphasis on staff development and collaborative partnerships to ensure what goes on in our classrooms is as good as it can be.
Please feel free to visit the school with confidence that you will receive a warm welcome from our staff and students. It is important that this is a ‘match’ for both parties. If you are as excited as we are about this opportunity and our journey ahead, then we look forward to hearing from you.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. For this reason we will:
- not accept CVs.
- always seek two references ourselves from a most recent employer and second reference from a person who is able to make a judgment about a candidate’s suitability to work with children.
- carry out to an enhanced Disclose and Barring Service check and, for teachers, a Prohibition List check.
- not interview anyone without seeing two forms of ID.
- ensure candidates have permission to work in the UK.
We will always abide by the principles set out in the Department for Education’s Keeping Children Safe in Education (Part 3).
