An exciting opportunity has arisen in this fantastic school, for a Head of Learning Support to lead and manage the provision for SEND. This person will develop the teaching and learning of colleagues in order to maximise the progress of every learner within the Learning Support Faculty.

The Head of Learning support will work with colleagues from across Endeavour Learning Trust in developing the provision for students and ensuring the Trust vision is delivered. In our schools we have a relentless focus on excellence, high standards of behaviour but with the pragmatic emphasis on the balance between challenge and support, high expectation and nurture. And this counts for students and staff, teaching and non-teaching, so that our schools develop a family ethos, where everyone wants the best for everyone else.

Burscough Priory Academy is undergoing a transformation, having joined Endeavour Learning Trust on September 1st 2018. Already we have found Burscough Priory students to be hard working, willing and enthusiastic and keen to work with their teachers and support staff to get the very best out of their school days. In addition, the team of staff currently in place are completely committed to the rapid and sustainable improvements currently taking place, firmly rooted in the existing good practice already evident in other schools in Endeavour Learning Trust. This is a school that is going places.

For our staff, we are firmly committed to ensuring this is a job that can be enjoyed, where everyone can flourish. We pay close attention to work/life balance and, across the trust; we are developing strategies that take a common sense approach to those aspects of the role that could become an unnecessary burden on workload such as feedback and marking and centralised detentions. We have a strong, consistent behaviour policy where staff are fully supported in their teaching and students understand the consequences of their actions.

In our team, therefore, our teachers are committed to continuously improving the classroom experience of our students with a genuine desire to improve the life chances of our young people.

If you think this sounds like a place you would like to develop your career and leadership and your love of teaching then you can apply online.

As part of the interview you will be asked to teach a 45 minute lesson to a mixed Year 8 group.
