Teacher of English

Elemore Hall SchoolDL17 0HP County Durham

Following the expansion of our school and the retirement of a current teacher, we are seeking to appoint a high quality teacher of English to join our team on the Windlestone Site at DL17 0HP. 

Elemore Hall is a well established and thriving Durham County Council maintained, residential and day special school. From September 2021 we will be expanding to include two other sites in other parts of County Durham, creating a 186 place school for secondary aged pupils who have social, emotional and mental health difficulties. Many of our pupils have additional general or specific learning difficulties. The school is committed to providing academic, social and residential education of the highest quality in partnership with pupils, governors, parents, carers, the LA, health and other agencies. 

The English provision in the school consists of five teachers plus support staff spread across the three sites. Teachers work collaboratively in planning the curriculum. Pupils currently work towards Entry Level, Functional Skills and GCSE in English and, where appropriate, English Literature.

Teachers at the school are encouraged to be involved in the provision of activities in our extended day/residential programme (this is not compulsory and is negotiated individually, but is paid). NQTs are welcome to apply.

There is so much to say about the school and the vacancies that potential candidates are strongly encouraged to visit or telephone the Headteacher for further information. All applications must be made on the standard application form, this, along with further details about the school and the post, is obtainable by contacting the school on 0191 372 0275 or from the school website   www.elemorehallschool.com

Interview date Wednesday 26th May 2021
