Beacon High is a community school located in North London. It is part of other networks, both working collegially with schools in the area though the Islington Futures Federation as well as the Angel Islington Teaching School Alliance.
Working at Beacon High is exceptionally rewarding. Many of our students come from very disadvantaged backgrounds and our role is to nurture their self-belief to help them build a successful future and to 'Believe, Belong, Become'. Staff at Beacon High really do make a difference to the life chances of so many young people.
Our expectations are high both for students and staff and we work hard to continually improve our practice for the betterment of all students. Many staff have been promoted internally and we are committed to the professional development of all our staff through a range of high quality CPD. Colleagues who embrace the Beacon High ethos will have a wealth of opportunities to support them in the development of their career.
Thank you for your interest.
Safer recruitment is an important aspect of protecting and keeping children/young people safe. It applies to all employees/volunteers who have contact with, and access to children/young people. They are also people who children/young people see as safe and trustworthy.
Safer recruitment processes are critical in reducing harm that can be caused by staff/ volunteers. Because those already involved in abuse, or those disposed to do so, are extremely difficult to identify all employers must do their utmost, through good practice and vigilance, to make it as difficult as possible for abusers to obtain access to children.
Beacon High is committed to providing opportunities for all staff to continually update their knowledge and skills with a view to improve Teaching, Learning and Assessment so that there is a maximum positive impact on students’ learning, progress and achievement. Moreover, we recognise the contribution effective CPD makes to improving and maintaining staff morale, and to the recruitment and retention of teaching staff.
