Teacher of Religious Studies

Teacher of Religious Studies

Required ASAP

The post will be paid on the Schools Main Teacher Pay Scale MPS/UPS


We are currently looking to appoint a teacher of Religious Studies who has a real passion for their subject and is equipped with the skills to maximise outcomes for students in RS at both KS3 and KS4. RS at KPHS has previously formed part of the larger Social Sciences department and lessons in Key Stage 3 were taught as social studies - which is a blend of RE, Citizenship and RSE. During some recent changes we have adapted the KS3 curriculum offer to ensure that Citizenship and RE are taught as separate subjects. We are now looking for a teacher of RS to support the curriculum leader to adapt and shape a diverse and effective curriculum for our students at KS3 which incorporates the essential knowledge alongside British Values.

The new teacher of RS will work alongside two RS teachers in the department and will continue to work closely with the existing Citizenship department which is similarly made up of a Curriculum Leader and two Citizenship teachers. Both departments will take joint responsibility in helping to promote statutory requirements of RSE whole school and will take an active role in the preparation of whole school assemblies, activities and possible drop-down days. Both departments will have access to a large work area for staff to collaboratively plan, regularly communicate and offer opportunities for assessment moderation.
