We are looking for a highly motivated and talented Head of English to join our team to teach small groups as they study the core curriculum at Key Stages 3 and 4. These small classes benefit students enabling them to make good progress and allow our teachers to ensure that learning is tailored to individual student needs. The ability to offer other subjects would be desirable/advantageous.
North East Essex Co-operative Academy (NEECA) is an Alternative Provision Academy for pupils aged 5-16, most of whom have found it difficult to be successful in a mainstream school. We are very proud of the provision we offer, which is down to the great work our teachers and support staff do to re-engage young people with education.
It is a very exciting time for the school as we are just about to embark on a multi-million pound capital build programme which will result in a new school building due to open in January 2023. This provides an opportunity for the successful candidate to shape our provision for the future.
This post is paid at either MPS (£25,714 to £36,961)/UPS (£38,690 to £41,604) and attracts an SEN2 allowance of £4,479 and TLR2b allowance of £4,943.
Information about the School
NEECA is a 5 – 16 school for 180+ young people most of whom have found it difficult to be successful in a mainstream school. We are very proud of the provision we offer. Students are taught in small groups and they study the core curriculum at Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4. In addition to the core curriculum, we provide rich and varied extended curriculum opportunities ranging from music therapy, targeted literacy intervention, horse riding to vocational courses and work experience placements. Small classes benefit students and enable them to make good progress as staff can ensure that learning is tailored to individual student needs.
At Key Stage 3, in partnership with local schools, we focus on supporting young people to return to a mainstream school. At Key Stage 4, we focus on providing the opportunity for students to gain 5 GCSEs to ensure a successful transition to post 16 education or training. Many of the young people who attend NEECA arrive here at a point of crisis or conflict in their lives. It is our aim to ensure that we help them to regain a sense of confidence and self-esteem which allows them to compete on equal terms with their peers, despite the disruption to their education caused by leaving mainstream school.
