The Alec Reed Academy is an Ofsted ‘Good’ school and an exciting place to work. In July 2018 it received praise from Ofsted who described it as ‘at the heart of its community, an inclusive school with leadership providing excellent role models and maintaining the good quality of education since the last inspection in 2015’.

We are currently looking to appoint a Librarianto join our team of specialists: HLTA, Coordinator for Literacy, EAL Coordinator, Curriculum Leader for English & Literacy and Assistant Principal in charge of Teaching and Learning.

ARA has a newly reinvented library that has been in operation for the past year which is at the heart of our school. Because we subscribe to the substantive body of evidence that comments on the emotional and social consequences of reading for pleasure, as well as the academic success associated with reading for pleasure (Clark and Rumbold, 2006) which even outstrips a child’s socio-economic status (OECD, 2002), we see the library as a space that plays an integral part in the lives of the children in our care. With substantial new investment, the reinvention of our library has created an opportunity for a creative, organised and enthusiastic individual to build on the early success ensuring it becomes a valued, pivotal part of our students’ learning journey.

It is essential that applicants have practical experience of working in a library in an educational setting, experience of computerised Library Management Systems, experience in communicating and networking with a range of stakeholders; and experience of working with young people. A qualified (ideally Chartered) status would be desirable but not essential, as is experience in holding extra-curricular clubs and activities that promote reading.

The working hours are Monday to Friday from 8am to 4.30pm totalling 39 hours per week on a term-time only basis plus professional development days. Flexibility is expected in order to support after school events such as open evenings and if we have authors in. The salary range for the role is £21,000 to £24,000 per annum (this has already been pro-rated).

Closing date for completed applications: Sunday 25th September 2022 at midnight

Interviews will be held w/c 3rd October 2022.

We reserve the right to hold interviews prior to the closing date should we receive favourable applications.

ARA is committed to the protection and safety of our learners. The successful applicant will be required to undertake an enhanced criminal record check via the Disclosure and Barring Service prior to commencing the role.
