About Coleridge Community College
Coleridge Community College is a small, family and community orientated school in Cambridge. It’s a school where every child and staff member is known, developed and supported. We value our staff highly and treat workload seriously.
This is an exciting time to join us: We have recently joined United Learning; we have a new Headteacher; and, having just achieved a ‘Good’ at Ofsted, we have really strong foundations on which to grow into an excellent school. We are looking for someone that shares this belief and passionately believes that all children can achieve, no matter what their starting point, background or needs.
We are looking for the right people to join our team. The post holder will be required to work in partnership with the Headteacher to bring about continuous improvement of the school in order to ensure high standards of academic achievement for pupils, high quality teaching and learning experiences for pupils and high standards of behaviour in lessons and around the school.
You will be joining a school that is ambitious for its future as well as the future of all its students and so are looking for colleagues who share that ambition and are uncompromising in their commitment to doing what it takes to secure the potential of the young people here.
Our most important purpose is to teach young people things they would not learn outside school which empower them. We believe that ‘Knowledge Is Power’. We believe in teaching through explicit/direct instruction (Rosenshine and Engelmann) and utilising TLAC 2.0 techniques.
Our mission is to bring out ‘the best in everyone’.
We are unapologetically ambitious for every child, no matter what their background, prior attainment or needs.
We also believe in ‘Education with Character’ – we want young people to look back on a schooling that has inspired and challenged them, given them wide opportunity and prepared them for the ups and downs of life.
