Why teach at Blessed William Howard?
Our mission statement illustrates our key strength: Love of God Love of People Love of Learning Love of Life
With this emphasis, development of staff is of vital importance to us. Our whole school CPD project with the Schools, Students and Teachers network [SSAT] sees all staff working in Teaching and Learning Communities [TLCs] to share best practice; specifically focused on formative assessment practices.
Blessed William Howard is also a member of the Stafford Sixth Form Partnership (comprising five schools) as well as working with colleagues across the town in developing teaching. Alongside another local school, the partnership schools are involved in a SCITT (School-centred initial teacher training programme) based in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire.
The school’s commitment to the development of staff has seen a number of colleagues completing Masters/ professional qualifications in recent years. Support for these is available where a link to the school improvement plan is demonstrated.
There are great opportunities at our school for staff to be involved in the wider life of the school; this includes leading children in charitable work and house competitions as a form tutor in our vertical house system; residential experience with students (e.g. retreats); a highly popular Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme programme; visits to European destinations (modern languages and skiing trips); public speaking competitions, many sports teams and many performing arts opportunities. These experiences have supported many colleagues in their ambition to cross to the upper pay range.
With free parking, easy access to the town centre and a highly active PTA we also provide access to childcare vouchers as part of the salary scheme, negotiate discounts with our excellent canteen and create the conditions for staff to feel secure in:
“There is a warm atmosphere and the quality of relationships between all members of the school community are a particular strength. Pupils and staff are friendly, helpful, polite and welcoming to visitors.” Diocesan Section 48 Report (December 2017)
Blessed William Howard is a great school. We hope you will come and have a look at what we have to offer you, as well as telling us what you can bring to our school.
