This post would be ideal for a graduate interested in teaching and requiring experience in a school before applying for teaching training next year. Furthermore, we would be very interested to hear from ECT’s who are yet to secure a teaching role but are keen to remain working in schools prior to embarking on their ECT.

We are looking for an enthusiastic colleague to supervise classes of pupils/students when teaching staff are on short-term absences. Work for the lessons will be set by teachers. An induction programme will prepare you for the role and on-going training will be provided. The ideal candidate will be keen to work across both the primary and secondary phases; however, the position will be based in secondary phase.

We are extremely proud of our ethos and the very positive relationships which exist at the school. The Harleston Federation; part of the St Benet’s Multi Academy Trust, includes Harleston Primary Academy and Archbishop Sancroft High School, both are oversubscribed, inclusive, Church of England schools in South Norfolk. We are a community that flourishes, through God’s love, to live ‘Life in All its Fullness’ John 10:10 and John 13:34. This is an exciting time to join our school community as, on September 1st 2022, we become one school; The Harleston Sancroft Academy.

You should:

  • Ideally have relevant experience of working with children across the 3-16 age range. However, if you feel you have transferable skills and are looking for a new challenge then please tell us these in the personal statement of your application
  • Have good literacy and numeracy skills
  • Be able to establish positive and supportive relations with all children
  • Be able to use your initiative to support learning
  • Be flexible and able to work in a team situation
  • Have the energy, drive and enthusiasm to inspire

We offer:

  • A great working relationship with staff and students
  • An extensive ‘in house’ CPD programme
  • The support of an informed and active Local Governing Body and Trust
  • A very supportive and encouraging Senior Leadership Team
  • Close collaboration throughout the Trust

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
