We are eager to recruit a dedicated and enthusiastic colleague who understands the importance of literacy and reading and is able to support our students in these areas.  This role is diverse and will include the responsibilities associated with running and developing a library as well as supporting students requiring extra support with literacy skills. Although already an established library, we are always keen to review this valuable resource and want to employ a colleague who is passionate about reading and literacy. 

The library at Cleeve Park School is a busy hub of activity, supporting students with their studies both in and out of lessons, including being residence to an established homework club. We are looking for a colleague who will lead on reading in our school and who will bring new and exciting ideas about how to help our children love reading even more than they already do. 

Cleeve Park School is a popular 11-18 school, providing an excellent education for all our students, with a commitment to learning, pride in our community and sharing success in all we do. Following a successful Ofsted Inspection the school is rated as ‘Good’ and is privileged to have a well-stocked and equipped library. 

If you think you have what is required to run a busy school library and support students in improving their literacy skills then we would like to hear from you. If you wish to discuss this opportunity further or to visit our school, please contact Julia Doyle, Head Teacher’s PA.

We are committed to safeguarding the welfare of students and expect all staff to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check will be required for the successful applicant.

Closing date: 18th March 2019

We reserve the right to close the application process early if suitable candidates apply.
