The Directors of Uffculme Academy Trust are seeking to appoint a permanent Teacher of RE to join our Outstanding School from September 2019. This vacancy would be suitable both for particularly for NQTs and RQTs but more experienced teachers would also be welcome to apply.
Uffculme is a flourishing, popular, high performing Academy located on the beautiful Devon/Somerset border with easy motorway access to the regional centres of Taunton and Exeter. The February 2014 Ofsted inspection classed the Academy as ‘outstanding’. Uffculme is fully comprehensive and committed to inclusion. Last year our Progress 8 score was 0.7 with the disadvantaged achieving 0.3, maintaining our track-record as being one of the highest performing non-selective schools in the country. Consequently we have received many national awards and accolades over recent times to recognise the quality of the education provided here at Uffculme.
Within this context, RE is one of the flagship departments – achieving an exceptional Subject Progress 8 score of 0.99, (with disadvantaged Progress 8 = 0.60). And it is a highly valued subject which all students follow through to full course GCSE.
Whilst our examination results speak for themselves they don’t tell the whole story. They are based on a culture of high expectations; exceptional levels of student participation and active involvement in the life of the school; and great relationships between staff and students. We make no apologies for wanting it all as a school: happy staff, happy students, outstanding results, amazing opportunities and a culture which rewards and values success in all its forms.
If this sounds like the sort of school you would like to be a part of, and you are, or have the potential to be an outstanding teacher who will inspire a keen interest in RE amongst your students, then please get in touch to find out more. For an informal discussion about the post, please contact Miss Kylee Guy, Head of RE on 01884 840458 or email
