Further information

Our fast-paced school is looking for a new English Lead to build on the success which our school is currently enjoying. With hard work and dedication, our staff team have transformed Corporation Road Community Primary School since the school was placed into Special Measures in 2016. It is unrecognisable from 2016 - and as such, we eagerly anticipate our re-inspection, and we are so excited to see our team grow with this leadership position.

Outcomes are currently strong - in 2017, our progress was in the top 1% for Writing and Maths, and top 6% for reading - but our school is about so much more than great outcomes. We strive for our children and staff to love being part of our 'Proud Community', ensuring they leave us with fond memories and a firm foundation from which to grow for the rest of their lives.

As such, we are looking for someone who:
- is first and foremost a strong teacher - ideally with experience of Year 6
- is passionate about English - and has a clear understanding of best practice and innovation in English teaching
- is a role model - in teaching skills, but also in building relationships between staff, parents and pupils
- has great interpersonal skills - a sense of humour, positive attitude, resilience and a 'can-do' approach
- is the right person for our school!

In return, we can offer you:
- well behaved and keen children - they love to learn and they love coming to school . Our children are the pride of our school
- a supportive Headteacher and senior leadership team - who will support and value your contribution to school life
- dedicated leadership time - in order to make the positive impact that you will be capable of
- being part of an established Multi Academy Trust - with clear support, development and future career opportunities. Lingfield Education Trust has an established English network, as well as a school improvement team and genuine collaboration across our family of schools.

If this sounds like the opportunity that you have been waiting for, please download the application pack, get in touch with Janet Sowerby School Business Manager on (01325) 244940 to arrange a visit and start to imagine the next stage of your career in our vibrant school.

Come and enjoy the journey with us.
