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.
Calthorpe Park seeks a passionate and committed person to manage an important and growing learning environment in the school. The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic and knowledgeable reader of appropriate literature who can support and encourage reading for pleasure both to a class and to even the most reluctant individual. Experience of the day to day duties of a librarian preferred.
It is expected that the candidate will work the core hours of 8.30am – 3.15pm. There is some flexibility in working hours above the core hours to make up to 35 hours per week.
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’
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.
