Job summary

The local governors of Looe Community Academy warmly welcome applications to cover maternity leave from teachers of English that share our commitment to excellence and our passion for achieving the very best outcomes for all our learners.

If you can teach English and Drama with energy and inspiration to students of all abilities across KS3 and KS4 then we would like to hear from you, whether you are newly qualified or bring a wealth of teaching experience, as we are looking for the right person to complement our existing high achieving English and Arts teams.

The English and Arts departments are staffed with subject experts and are very well resourced through our commitment to provide outstanding opportunities for learning.

Additional allowances

While the role is part-time at 0.8 FTE, we frequently have other opportunities for additional hours that may be of interest, such as intervention work and lesson cover.

The start date will be determined by the start of maternity leave or the requirement to work from home, but the Academy will consider cover work and a handover period if the candidate is available before the maternity leave commences and, within reason, can temporarily hold over the start date if the candidate is unable to start until after the maternity commences.

Our Academy is part of the South East Cornwall Multi Academy Regional Trust (SMART), which provides for outstanding local career opportunities, excellent professional development opportunities and access to expert support, advice, guidance and knowledge pooling from fellow practitioners in our partner schools.

Applying for the job

Please apply using the Academy’s application pack which is available on the vacancies page of our website. We do not accept CVs and only applications submitted on the Academy’s application form will be considered.

The successful applicant will be expected to demonstrate their entitlement to work in the UK.
