HLTA - English (x2) TTO plus 5 days
Carlton Bolling is a rapidly improving school with a successful sixth form, which has the highest expectations of its students and the ambition to be outstanding within the next few years.
It is a great place to work with staff surveys and extremely low staff turnover evidence of this, with the recent Ofsted report noting "An impressive shift in the views of staff and parents about the college, which are overwhelmingly positive".
Major factors behind this are:
" Small Class Sizes: An average of 15 in English and Maths classes across all year groups, with 18 in Humanities and around 22 for all other subjects. This allows teachers to do the best job possible and also eases the burden of marking to allow a proper work-life balance.
" Well Behaved Students: Teachers can do the job they came in to teaching to do - teach not control behaviour.
" Reducing Unnecessary Meetings and Red Tape: We believe in completing a job rather than talking or writing about it.
These are two new roles to school, where the successful candidates will be responsible for the successful introduction and delivery of the new Foundation Literacy scheme. This is intended to develop the basic skills of students with relatively low levels of literacy, primarily in Years 7-9, and will encompass reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar. This role is based in a classroom environment to specific groups of students without the additional requirements of planning or marking. All lessons are already planned within the scheme, and all exercises are designed to be marked within lesson time.
These roles would be ideal for someone with an understanding and love of literacy, desire to work with and develop students' abilities in this area, and who understands and values the school's desire to be the very best.
If you feel that you have the right experience, character and motivation to help students achieve their potential, we would love to hear from you.
If you think this might be the role for you, please contact Lisa Reeder at Carlton Bolling College for an information pack and an application form or if you would like to visit the school, please contact Mr S Haveron, Director of English
