School Librarian

Greatfields SchoolBarking and Dagenham

This is an opportunity for you to work with some extraordinary and aspirational students, in a developing area of East London. The Gascoigne community is a very special place and we are privileged to be building a school at its heart. The school is driven by the dreams, aspirations and ambitions of our students and the wider community and we would love you to join us in helping us to build a school which will drastically improve the life chances of our young people.

Greatfields opened in September 2016 and will eventually grow to become a ten form entry school with 1800 pupils, including sixth form, in purpose-built new accommodation. We currently have approximately 800 students across Years 7 to 11. Aspiration is at the heart of everything we do here and we believe that every child has the right and potential to achieve their ambitions.

We are very excited to be moving into the final phase of our new accommodation in February 2022, which will contain our brand new library. We are looking to recruit an ambitious librarian to set up the library from scratch and who shares our vision and ambitions for the young people of this community. This is a role that will grow with the school and you will be joining a highly motivated and passionate group of staff who work tirelessly in the best interests of the students.  Staff development is central to everything we do and you will receive regular line management meetings; a personalised CPD programme which best fits your needs; and clear pathways for progression.
