Teacher of EAL
Start date: To be agreed
Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge is an ambitious and inclusive 11-16 school that has 800 pupils on roll and is over-subscribed in years 7, 8 and 9. Following a period of support from Trinity MAT, the school formally joined the Trust in 2018. There has since been significant improvement in outcomes, meaning the academy can now be recognised as one of the most improved schools in the country. The school is recognised under the body of world class schools. Aspirations and ambitions are high; however, the school is determined not to rest on its laurels and is continually striving for ways to better serve the students. It is now seeking to appoint a strong Teacher of EAL to join an ambitious and ever-thriving EAL team, dedicated to supporting the 46% of students, who qualify as EAL.
The school is committed to providing a fitting and ambitious curriculum suitable for all its students and has already invested significantly in establishing and developing a committed and hardworking EAL team, who remain guided by the core values of: Empathy, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. This is a fantastic opportunity for a committed individual, with a passion for supporting vulnerable students in their quest to improve the English proficiency of our students.
As we have an ever-changing picture of our EAL students’ needs, we cater for those with the weakest levels of English within an alternative provision and seek to support teachers within mainstream lessons where EAL students with adequate proficiency in English, are situated. Following 12 months of rapid progress in this area, we are looking to expand our team, and appoint a Teacher of EAL to lead the alternative provision base and support with EAL students within the wider school.
Currently, the EAL team comprises of the staff below:
*A senior leader dedicated to the oversight of all EAL students at TASB.
*An Academy Lead for EAL who strategically oversees the curriculum and pastoral support provided to all EAL students at TASB.
*An EAL Co-ordinator who teaches students with low proficiency in EAL, currently being educated within our alternative provision.
*An EAL engagement officer to support predominantly with the pastoral care of our Czech/Slovak students.
If you are a teacher within a Primary or Secondary School setting, with the vision to drive the strategic direction and development of our EAL provision, this role offers an outstanding opportunity to play a key role in the further development of Trinity Academy Grammar. You must be fully committed to optimising the opportunities that are available to our most vulnerable children and young people, secure in the knowledge that you will be joining an ambitious forward-thinking Academy Trust. The successful candidate must be passionate about improving our EAL students’ life chances and supporting them throughout their journey at Trinity Academy Grammar. You must have a strong work ethic and high expectations of yourself and others, with the ability to lead staff and students in realising those expectations.
