Charlton is a popular 11-16 academy.   We believe in progress through partnership with learning at the heart of all we do.  We are a school who have a caring and disciplined environment, combining a degree of formality with good relationships between adults and students

Wellington is a busy market town, rapidly improving facilities and new housing being built nearby the school.  From its central position, Wellington is easily reached by rail and has a large train station in the town.  It is close to Shrewsbury and the famous Ironbridge, which is an area of local beauty and historical interest and one of the best in Shropshire!

To support us with our future development, we converted to an academy on 1st December 2018 and joined a Multi Academy Trust. We are now part of the Learning Community Trust. We believe this will be ideal for us, as we have similar vision and values.  We are working in partnership towards a shared vision that places students’ learning, environments and local communities at the centre of our approach.  

We are offering an exciting opportunity for a Cover Officer to enhance our teaching support provision. You will help teaching staff to support the further development of an innovative curriculum for all, with purposeful, contextual learning and high expectations for students forming a major part of our passion for learning.

As a member of the support team, you will focus on ensuring the progress of every child by developing their  learning skills, knowledge and understanding within an exciting and relevant curriculum.

Our support provision across the school has an excellent team spirit where collaboration, cooperation and the sharing of best practice are key, as is hard work within a supportive team. Learning is at the heart of all we do and the team aims to provide students with outstanding opportunities, especially since we moved into our brand new, purpose-built school in 2016.

We are looking for a Cover Officer, who is enthusiastic about their ability to inspire the children to be passionate about their learning.

Our school is an equal opportunity employer, so we are committed to the safeguarding and protection of children and individuals. This post is subject to a DBS Enhanced Disclosure.
