Required As Soon As Possible, Permanent Contract

We are seeking to employ a Reading and Literacy Co-ordinator to assist in the development of reading and literacy.

Hebburn Comprehensive is an 11-16 school, with a pupil population of 845, which is increasing rapidly. We are a ‘good’ school, where the emphasis for all is on learning and achievement, where pupils feel safe and happy and where a culture of success and ambition is embedded and celebrated throughout the school and wider community. Our central aim is to raise the aspirations of all our young people, inculcating a respect for one another and for the values of learning, citizenship and tolerance. We remain resolute in our conviction that the education we provide must be inclusive, ambitious and designed to meet the needs of all pupils.

In 2013 and 2017, we were judged as ‘good’ by Ofsted in all areas. Inspectors in 2017 said: ‘Pupils are confident, and they engage well with visitors. Pupils speak with fondness and enthusiasm about their Teachers and say how approachable and supportive all staff are’. The school has excellent facilities and provides first-class opportunities for professional development.

If you are passionate about teaching and learning and want to make a real difference to the lives of young people, Hebburn Comprehensive could be the school for you.

Candidates are asked to complete the application form in full, and to enclose a covering letter of no more than one side of A4, explaining how your experience and professional and personal qualities would make you a suitable candidate for the post.

South Tyneside Council and Hebburn Comprehensive are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment and an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) disclosure will be sought along with other relevant pre-employment checks.

For further information and an application pack, please contact Mrs Kaye Melville, Head Teacher’s PA, on melvillek@hebburn.net or (0191) 483 3199, to whom completed applications should be returned by Noon on Thursday 21 October 2021.
