The Kimberley School is an exciting place to work.  Our aim is for every child to achieve or surpass their academic and social potential and we achieve this through providing an outstanding quality of education, underpinned by a strong programme of care, guidance, support and enrichment.

This is an opportunity to join our team who work with groups of students across the school to support their learning and progress, with a particular focus on those students who are in receipt of the pupil premium.  Your primary focus will be supporting individuals and groups in their learning in English and Maths, however, there will be opportunities to work with students across the school in other aspects of the curriculum.  As well as supporting students in lessons you will lead small group sessions using schemes of learning created by the English and Maths teams.  We are looking for a dedicated and enthusiastic graduate who will support pupils, parents, teachers and the school to establish a supportive and nurturing learning environment in which children make good academic progress. 

This may be of particular interest to you if you are considering a career in teaching in the future.  It will be an ideal stepping stone to teacher training provision.  Indeed, as a leading partner in the East Midlands Teacher Training Partnership we would be well placed to support in the transition to becoming a teacher in the future.  Although the role is advertised as a graduate position we will consider anybody who meets all the other person specifications that are set out elsewhere in the information we have provided you with. If you want to make a significant difference to children’s lives and opportunities, then this could be the role for you.

All staff are recruited under our safer recruitment processes, in line with DfE requirements, which includes an enhanced DBS check. We have a suite of safeguarding procedures, policies and guidance for all of our staff and volunteers to ensure we actively promote children and young people's welfare and safety.

We are also committed to equality of opportunity in employment and it is our policy to promote equal opportunities in employment, regardless of race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, creed, disability, sex, age, marital status or sexual orientation. This applies to recruitment and selection practices, training, promotion and in the application of national and local agreements in respect of pay and conditions of service.

This application pack includes a job summary, job description and person specification.   Applications must be made on an East Midlands Education Trust application form which you can download from the EMET website.  Please note that CVs will not be accepted.
