Calthorpe Park School is a highly successful place to learn and grow. The school is in an exciting phase of ongoing development as its numbers increase year on year within the context of outstanding standards of care and expectation. The school’s projected growth over a number of years creates many ongoing opportunities for staff to develop, enhance and advance their careers within the same institution. The building work that will continue also offers staff and students first class learning and teaching environments.
We pride ourselves on the excellence of our exam results (Progress 8: +0.47; Attainment 8: 58.8) but our ethos is to support all students to have the opportunity to succeed and the experience of success in a culture of care and consideration; challenge and commitment; respect and responsibility; integrity and impression. These four are the tenets of ‘The Calthorpe Way’. We aim to educate the whole child for the whole of their life: no ceilings or parameters; aspiring to excellence in everything we do.
OfSTED April 2017:
‘A very calm, purposeful and orderly school with the ‘business of learning’ at its heart, and the pupils thrive as a result’
‘… pupils are keen to learn, ambitious for their school and unfailingly polite and courteous… (and) are refreshingly understanding… mature and reflective’
‘Staff and pupils are positive about the school and are proud to be members of the community’
We require a full- time LSA, working every day from 9am to 3pm, to join this excellent team who support our amazing students in so many ways.
This role would be excellent preparation for a graduate hoping to pursue a career in teaching either through CPS or other avenues.
Calthorpe Park School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service checks along with other relevant employment checks.
