About the vacancy
Academy Trust is looking to strengthen the Central School Improvement Team; therefore,
we are looking to recruit a highly motivated, experienced and driven colleague
to work centrally as a Curriculum, Learning and Assessment Lead (CLAL) to
support our schools.
the successful candidate will focus on providing support to the team at
Waterman Primary School and will be based in the school with frequent visits
and meetings in our Head office, located in Wickford for the first year. The role will eventually focus on supporting all
schools within our trust, therefore flexibility is required.
new colleague will work collaboratively with the school(s) and will be expected
to take a whole school responsibility such as SEND, PP, assessment, the
curriculum, behaviour/SEMH, D-DSL and any accompanying qualification in schools
which they are supporting. There is an
expectation that applicants will possess the SENDCo qualification or be
studying towards its completion. Curriculum, Learning and Assessment Leads
(CLALs) will be expected to contribute to planning, including medium/long term
planning and individual lessons as well as quality assuring planning with
oversight by the DOCLA/D-DOCLA.
The role will
include the performance management of staff in their phase
(with the support of the head of school, senior staff and/or DOCLA/D-DOCLA). It is expected that the successful applicant
will have experience in closing the gaps.
This will mean direct contact time with pupils - teaching and leading
pupil interventions as needed/instructed, particularly for pupils at particular
points across key stages (ie. end of Reception, Year 2 and Year 6).
The Trustees are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
