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 different. We welcome applicants from all teaching backgrounds to join our team on the journey to Outstanding.
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 only 200 students we have a unique family ethos and staff are able to get to know every child as an individual, our parents are also incredibly supportive of the school. Carew is a truly special place to work.
To support staff wellbeing we have ‘Marking Mondays’ and ‘Wellbeing Wednesdays’. This means we focus on getting all our marking done during school time, an achievable task with a maximum of 10 students in any class. Each half term we have a Wellbeing Wednesday – last term staff enjoyed Yoga, Zumba, Kayaking, Go Karting, Head Massage and Bowling instead of the regular after school meeting.
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 sports. All our Upper School students all take part in subject specific overnight trips to support their learning.
We strongly encourage visits to the school to get a feel of whether it is the right place for you – get in touch for a confidential discussion and to arrange a visit. Please contact Rob Watkins (Principal) on 07799547594 or email@example.com.
Carew Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.
Carew Academy – Let’s show what we can do.
