         KINGSMEAD COMMUNITY SCHOOL : INFORMATION FOR APPLICANTS

Kingsmead Community School is a rural Community Comprehensive School situated near the
Devon/Somerset border, close to the Brendon Hills and Exmoor. It is a magnificent area in
which to live. Not only is there the tranquillity and beauty of the countryside but there is the
rapidly growing county town of Taunton nearby and easy access (20 minutes) to the M5 for
connections to the rest of the country.

Kingsmead Community School lies in the small town of Wiveliscombe. It is an 11-16 Community
Comprehensive School with 780 daytime students and is used in the evenings and weekends for
adult learning and lettings. The School is very successful and is oversubscribed. Our latest
Ofsted Report, in December 2009, gave an overall judgement that Kingsmead is an “outstanding
school”. Ofsted praised in particular the outstanding curriculum on offer, the quality of teaching
and learning, the personal development of students, the harmonious relationships, leadership
and management and that students are very well cared for and receive strong support. We are
a Language College and firmly believe in developing the international dimension of the School
having strong links with schools in Europe and also with Zambia in Africa. We are also a
Specialist Humanities College and were one of the first 70 schools in the country to have dual
specialism. These initiatives have not only allowed the school to be involved in cutting edge
practice but have made it a resource rich environment. We have excellent ICT facilities
including a growing online curriculum and provide all staff with quality training and support to
ensure ICT is fully utilised to enhance people‟s work.

Kingsmead is a pleasant and stimulating place. The staff are committed, friendly and
supportive. The students are responsive and well behaved. Our examination results are
pleasing with A* - C passes of 69% in 2009.

The school is committed to continual curriculum improvement and the professional development
of its staff. Kingsmead will provide good career opportunities for those teachers who wish to
move on and will also provide new challenges for those who wish to remain with us for a number
of years.

We have high expectations. We expect staff to support our caring, student-centred ethos, to be
supportive of each other and to set high standards for our students. We hope staff will
contribute to and lead some of the wide range of extra-curricular opportunities we offer. All
applicants for teaching posts at Kingsmead will be expected to be committed to taking on a tutor
role, to using ICT effectively in the classroom, to take a lead in areas created by Challenge
Days* and to continue their own professional development as skilled practitioners.

If you like to sound of Kingsmead and think you have something to offer, we would welcome
your application.

We deliver the new ICT Framework, developing and progressing skills and capability across
Years 7 and 8, leading towards examination board qualifications from the start of Year 9. The
programme of study is well resourced by outline lesson plans and a raft of online teaching and
learning resources published by SMART ICT. Class text books support skills development,
differentiation, and showcase assessment standards. The department is currently implementing
APP with particular focus on developing student‟s planning, refining and self evaluation routines.
Student‟s regular formative assessment informs personal short term target setting, which is
tracked and reported every 7 – 8 weeks.



                      Year 11 – OCR GCSE Business Studies B

In this modular course students investigate the relationship between business activity and the
environment in which it takes place. The course provides knowledge and experience of life in
the business world.

Topics covered include:
    The objectives of businesses
    How to use financial information to judge the success of business
    The management of people within business
    The way in which businesses organise the production and marketing of goods and
      services

Wherever possible, we use local and national businesses to see how things work in the real
world.

GCSE Business Studies B is a modular course, which has been designed to provide an
investigative approach to Business Studies, encouraging students to study their local business
environment. It provides a sound basis for progression either directly to employment or to
proceed to further qualifications.

       Challenge Days at Kingsmead
               A Rationale
   1. The Context
In ‘2020Vision’, the report from the ‘Teaching and Learning in 2020 review group’, a vision
for education for the next generation of students is examined that puts personalisation at
its heart.

Central to the whole issue of personalised learning is an understanding that the successful
learner of the 21st century will be, by definition, very different from the successful learner of
the last century.

In a competitive, global market where rapid technological developments will radically
change the world of work, employers are much more likely to be interested in the wider
learning capacities of potential employees. Rather than gauging suitability for a job or
University place based on qualifications alone, employers and Academic institutions are
likely to be equally interested in the qualities of creativity, resourcefulness, collaborative
skills and innovation.

Whilst we have yet to address the issue of how the ‘measurement’ of such skills and
attitudes might be made, it is already clear through the 14-19 curriculum, Key Skills and
Diplomas that they are intended to be central to educational success in the future.

Alongside these developments, we have already seen an enormous shift in focus in
education to enable students to take more ownership of their learning. AfL, L2L, Student
Voice and the development of new technologies have all, theoretically, made an impact on
the way we teach and the way students learn.

It is ironic therefore, that we often bemoan the capability of many of our students to work
independently. Whilst many would argue that educational standards have risen in the past
15 years, many others suggest that this is to the detriment of real learning. To put it
bluntly: our children are used to being spoon-fed the knowledge and strategies needed to
pass examinations and are therefore les capable at thinking independently.

Pragmatically, most people realise that exam success unlocks opportunity. However,
idealistically as educators we also believe in developing self-confident learners who are able
to play a positive role in society.

This conundrum forms the basis of the development of the new National Curriculum for
2008. It also provides us at Kingsmead with an opportunity to develop ways of organising
learning differently in order to secure exam success, whilst also nurturing effective lifelong
learning habits.

All curriculum areas at Kingsmead have been planning for the new curriculum changes
within their specific areas. Training has been provided at County/ National level and
changes for Year 7 in 2008-9 are already being planned. A closer focus ‘Key processes’
seems to be the biggest shift, as departments are being encouraged to enable students to
reflect on learning skills as well as ‘content’.
In early 2008, it became clear that many schools nationally were using the new curriculum
as an opportunity to organise learning in radically different ways. It seemed only right that
Kingsmead considered what we needed to do to (if anything) to rise to the challenges
outlined above.

With this in mind, a series of consultations/ INSET sessions at all levels within the school
took place during the spring of 2008. Staffs considered a number of options/ models and
were almost unanimously keen to take a ‘radical’ step in 2008-9 in order to develop cross
curricular learning at Kingsmead.

This resulted in the decision to develop a ‘Challenge Day’ at Kingsmead from September
2008. Challenge day would sit outside the new 9 day timetable and would therefore consist
of 19 days per year for cross-curricular/ creative learning projects to take place using time,
staffing and resources in a flexible and creative way.

The following discussion document outlines the rationale behind the challenge day and
explores some of the challenges presented by its adoption.

   2. What are the values that underpin the day?

Challenge day will enable all students to learn different things in different ways from the
‘timetabled curriculum’. This does NOT imply that it is intended to be ‘better’ in quality or
scope from the timetabled curriculum, but that it is just different. In very practical terms,
students will become used to working with a wide range of other students and teachers in a
variety of ways and using time and resources in a more flexible and adaptable way.

Challenge day enables both cross-curricular learning and cross phase learning. For
example, it is possible for Years 7 and 11 to work with each other on a community based
project, that lasts a full day supported by staff who are able to offer a range of skills/
expertise.

Crucially, Challenge day also enables events and trips that would normally have an impact
on the ‘timetabled’ curriculum to happen with the minimum of impact. This not only
removes the frustrations that occur due to missed lessons but also would greatly diminish
the cost of trips due to there being no cover demands.

Whilst it is unusual, it is not unique for schools to include challenge day within their regular
timetable. It is therefore important to outline what it is about Kingsmead’s challenge day
that will be unique to us.

      1. What are we trying to achieve?

In line with ‘Every Child Matters’ and the new national Curriculum’s aims, our aim is to
provide opportunities within Challenge day that develop students into successful learners
who enjoy reflecting on the learning process. We aim to foster the learning skills and
attitudes that develop creativity, curiosity, independence, interdependence and
resourcefulness. We aim to make learning active and wherever possible, linked to the ‘real
world’.
      2. Cross Curricular Working

Wherever possible opportunities for cross curricular learning must be sought. Challenge
day provides an opportunity for students to make links between subjects and to broaden
their understanding of the connection between different disciplines. Whilst it may not be
possible for cross-curricular work to be delivered by cross-curricular teams at all times, the
cross curricular dimensions of learning must be considered when teams are planning
Challenge days. These dimensions (see table 1) lie at the heart of Challenge days.

      3. Global Dimension

Wherever possible Challenge day will reflect Kingsmead’s commitment to global and
International citizenship. For many years now, Kingsmead has been at the forefront in
supporting opportunities for all students to explore their role as a global citizen. This goes
beyond learning about different cultures, embracing issues such as global trade,
international links and sustainable development.

These areas will continue to be a central part of the flexible days.

      4. Learning to Learn

Challenge days are underpinned by a commitment to Learning to Learn. All activities
during challenge days must reflect a pedagogical commitment to the principles of L2L.
Students will not only learn about knowledge, issues and ideas – but will also explicitly
learn about and reflect on the skills and attitudes needed to develop their learning
capacity.

With this in mind we will adopt the Personal Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS) model as a
framework to help plan activities during flexible days. It is an expectation that some aspect
of PLTS will be addressed during any one Challenge day activity.

The PLTS framework will be additionally scaffolded by the key learning skills of Resilience,
Resourcefulness, Reflection and Reciprocity.

The table below outlines the main rationale behind flexible days at Kingsmead.
