Broad Haven CP School is looking for an inspirational cross art-form Practitioner who can help demonstrate the Creative Habits of Mind in our school’s Creative Hub to help improve standards of literacy, especially with RADY (Raising the Attainment of Disadvantaged Youngsters) learners in years 3 & 4. We would like to show how creative approaches to teaching and learning can have a positive impact on attainment in literacy, with a focus on writing. We hope that by their participation in this project, we will also see an improvement in the confidence of our RADY learners, whose voices are an integral part to shaping the way in which this project evolves.
Our theme for the new term is “Magnificent Machines” and we would like to explore this exciting and varied topic in our brand-new Creative Hub, a space dedicated to the Creative Habits of Mind in which we have a sound-recording booth, a green screen, a performance area, a music area, an art space and an imagination station. We want to truly celebrate each area of this space to create stories inspired by Magnificent Machines, which can then be shared with the wider school, governors and parents. We would also like to demonstrate innovative and interesting uses of the space to inspire teachers to utilise the space in their own teaching, so we may ask the practitioner’s permission to film some of their sessions to become a CPD tool for the wider school.
Pupil voice is essential to this project and we therefore want the pupils themselves to shape every element; from who we hire, to how the stories are told and the ways in which they are shared. A cross-art form practitioner is therefore desirable as they will need to be someone who can be adaptable to the needs and wishes of the pupils.
A good understanding of the Creative Habits of Mind.
Experience of working with Key Stage 2 pupils.
Experience of delivering creative writing workshops.
Experience of animation, which could include stop-motion animation.
Experience of working in the Science and Technology area of Learning and Experience.
Experience of delivering performance workshops.
Welsh language is desirable but not essential and we encourage applications from underrepresented communities.
To apply please email a cover letter and CV to:
Lead Teacher, Miss Mattson on email@example.com and Creative Agent, Ms Chiffi on firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date for applications: Midday on 7th January
Online interviews with a pupil panel: Morning of 14th January
Project commences: w/c 24th January
Project to be completed by: 18th March
Pay will be in line with ACW Creative Practitioner pay and we would like the practitioner to attends the school for 15 full days over the course of the project (there will be flexibility to divide this into half days if required).
