Lode Heath School is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed Librarian to enthuse students with a lifelong love of learning and literature. This role is particularly important as we seek to support our students with online literacy and learning.

You will take responsibility for integrating the library service into the life of the school and ensuring it reflects the educational aims and objectives of the school. We will look to you to inspire a love of literacy by promoting the library and its resources within the library, the school and externally. You will oversee budgets, arrange classification and cataloguing, maintain library resources, and encourage student participation in children’s literary events and author visits. Important will be the ability to deliver services that are responsive to the fast-changing worlds of communications and information technology. In particular, we expect the successful candidate to support learning through whole-class library-based lessons, homework clubs and small group reading support.

Awareness of reading recovery programmes, experience in budgetary management and knowledge of Eclipse.net software used to process issuing, returns and barcoding of books would be an advantage.

Lode Heath School is a member of the Arden Multi-Academy Trust where we are committed in working together to help and enrich the experiences of all within the AMAT family; we have a clear vision to generate self-belief, self-worth, esteem and confidence in our young people who can then display the ambition and aspiration in achieving high educational outcomes.
