Raising aspirations - releasing potential

Work for us


Blackfen School-Raising Aspirations, Releasing Potential  

Thank you for visiting our recruitment page. We are delighted that you are considering making an application to a role at our wonderful school.  

We believe passionately that exemplary staff support leads to exemplary provision for students, and so our ethos of Raising Aspirations, Releasing Potential, applies equally to staff and students. We are a ‘Growth Mindset’ school, which means that we recognise that intelligence is not fixed; the brain is malleable, growth is possible and everyone can learn and improve.  

We aim to create a working environment that is safe, respectful, stimulating and enjoyable, whatever the stage of your career. We value our staff by communicating openly, building trusting relationships that enable us all to develop and thrive. Honesty and integrity are central to our staff relationships, as we believe we are all entitled to the feedback, honest conversations and support that help us grow as education professionals.  We actively help staff manage their workloads, minimising unnecessary bureaucracy and running a centralised behaviour system that frees up time for focusing on our central purpose: high quality teaching and learning.  

We believe that all staff have an entitlement to professional development that meets their individual needs and interests. Crucially, we recognise that our success can be measured, not only in our pupils’ experiences and achievements, but by our excellent staff retention and strong record of staff taking promoted roles across the education sector.  

We very much look forward to receiving your application!
