You will teach Art to Year 2 through to Year 6 (on rotation one year group per week).

How will this benefit you?

· You will have a bespoke CPD package linked to your specialist subject.

· You will receive weekly leadership time, in addition to your PPA, to develop your own skills and delivery of the specialist subject.

· You will have a unique view of standards, progress, prior knowledge of pupils in your subject and complete control of the subject resources and storage cupboard!

· You will gain experience of teaching years 2 through to 6.

How else will we help you to deliver good teaching?

· We do not ask for written plans from good or outstanding teachers.

· We do not ask you to cover break duty.

· We do not ask you to run an extra-curricular club.

This provides you with additional time to prepare, resource and set up lessons.
