We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic Reader Leader to join our team of staff that are committed to supporting our pupils in overcoming learning barriers, particularly with a view to developing their literacy.
Working with the English Department, the role is required to help raise the reading age and comprehension of targeted students, by planning programmes of support that meet identified needs, developing reading intervention and handwriting improvement schemes, and planning, delivering, testing and reporting on such sessions.
This role will encompass leading the implementation of our “brainy breakfast” club to build positive relationships and associations with learning in the context of secondary school and also on occasion supporting the library assistant. Ideally the Reader Leader will assess students for examination access arrangements, particularly in relation to reading.
The pay band for the role is Scale 5 (scp 8 to 11), which is £20,493 - £21,748.
The hours of work for the role will be 37 hours per week, Monday to Friday, 8 am to 4 pm (3.30 pm Fridays) and this will be required term time, plus five staff training days (39 weeks in total).
The actual salary for the role is £17,490.19 to £18,561.30 (under 5 years’ service) or £17,726.01 to £18,811.56 (over 5 years’ service).
The Governing Body is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all young people and expects all staff to share that commitment. The successful applicant will be required to complete an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
