SCHOOL LIBRARIAN

Salary: NJC Scale 2/3 points 3 to 5

Location: Charlton School (Part of the Learning Community Trust)

Contract type: Term time only

FTE: 37 hours per week

Charlton is a popular 11-16 academy. We believe in progress through partnership with learning at the heart of all we do. We are a school who have a caring and disciplined environment, combining a degree of formality with good relationships between adults and students. Charlton School identifies as a centre of learning and one which strives to provide the best possible educational experience for all students at the school.

Wellington is a busy market town, rapidly improving facilities and new housing being built nearby the school. From its central position, Wellington is easily reached by rail and has a large train station in the town. It is close to Shrewsbury and the famous Ironbridge, which is an area of local beauty and historical interest and one of the best in Shropshire!

To support us with our future development, we converted to an academy on 1st December 2018 and joined a Multi Academy Trust. We are now part of the Learning Community Trust. We believe this will be ideal for us, as we have similar vision and values. We are working in partnership towards a shared vision that places students’ learning and environments, and local communities at the centre of our approach.

We are looking for a professional and like-minded individual who will uphold these high standards and put student outcomes at the forefront of their endeavours. The newly appointed person will be responsible for the daily operation and upkeep of the library and will play a key role in supporting the students with their academic studies and personal development.

The role will require the organisation of resources and space, and the cultivation of a friendly, supportive atmosphere to ensure that students have a calm and productive environment in which to study.

The successful candidate will also be expected to promote and highlight students’ success through assemblies and by regularly updating the library displays to ensure they showcase the talents of the school.

The Librarian will work flexibly and proactively with various colleagues and departments, including but not limited to, the Literacy Coordinator, the SENDCo and Learning Support, Subject Leaders and Teachers.

The role will also offer the opportunity to have a direct impact on student learning and will be responsible for delivering library induction sessions to all new students.

This position would be suited to a person who is passionate about reading, literacy and supporting young people, who thrives in a busy and rewarding working environment. Ideally you will have a qualification in librarianship, teaching or information science, although consideration will be given to a candidate with relevant experience.

Our school is an equal opportunity employer, so we are committed to the safeguarding and protection of children and individuals. This post is subject to a DBS Enhanced Disclosure.

Closing date for applications: 27th June 2022

Interviews: 1st July 2022

Application forms and further information is available from the school website www.charlton.uk.com

Alternatively you may contact Cathy McGilvery cathy.mcgilvery1@charlton.uk.com or call 01952 386806.
