The St Marylebone CE School is seeking to appoint an energetic and dynamic EAL Assistant and Project Worker to cover a period of maternity leave.  This role helps EAL students access the curriculum and to support whole school initiatives on community cohesion.

The School is committed to meeting the needs of a diverse school population through inclusive practice. The successful candidate will be innovative, creative and enthusiastic about providing a wealth of exciting opportunities for pupils with additional needs.

The position offers aspiring teachers or those considering a future career in education the opportunity to gain invaluable practical school based experience, training and development in an outstanding school.

After qualifying, many have secured permanent teaching positions with us, often rising quickly to positions of additional responsibility (e.g. Head of Year).

• Supporting students with English as an Additional Language (EAL) in the classroom, on a one to one basis and in tutorials to enable them to access the curriculum fully.

• Supporting or leading on projects which aim to enhance ‘community cohesion’ in the School. These will include:

- ‘International Evening’: a concert for Year 7 to take part in by performing a piece from anywhere around the world.

- A Year 8 cultural event, e.g. ‘Sticky Fingers’: students invite their parents to school for international dinner.

- ‘Refugee Week’: promoting refugee week. 

• Running ‘Bilingual Book Club’.

• Teaching once a week the Parent English class.

• Form tutor
