Job description

English Specialist Wanted

  • Strong behaviour management needed
  • Do you have an English degree and not sure what you want to do next?
  • Literacy Intervention

One of our favourite schools has asked that we find an confident English graduate. Newly Qualified Teachers with the right attitude are also encouraged to apply.

It is a full time role that involves you delivering literacy intervention to C/D borderline pupils (groups of 5-10). The pupils you will be working with are vulnerable and will show signs of challenging behaviour.

The school was last inspected in September 2013. The school was awarded ‘Good’ for its current performance and its capacity to improve. Inspectors commented: ‘The school’s performance at key stage 4 in those indicators that include English and mathematics has improved steadily over the last five years and is now much better than that for similar schools.

Pupils make good progress in many lessons and gain new knowledge, understanding and subject skills effectively. Most pupils enjoy school and have positive attitudes to their work. In classes and around the school, most pupils behave very well. They feel safe in school and feel that the school deals well with any incidences of bullying… Most pupils participate in a wide variety of community and extra-curricular activities that contribute to well-developed social and life skills, such as working with others and problem solving. Pupils show respect, care and concern for the school and other pupils, and demonstrate the skills needed to progress to the next stage of learning.

The school is a genuine comprehensive school in that it has pupils of all abilities and backgrounds. It is very much a part of the community that it serves. The inspection report states that ‘there are strong relationships between the school, parents and the community’.
