Do you want to join an academy which has a friendly culture and is inclusive?  An academy where the senior leaders invest into well-being and development of all colleagues?

We’re looking for an EAL Coordinator to join our team in September 2022!

As an EAL Coordinator you will assist in raising the achievement of minority ethnic pupils by providing language curriculum support in the classroom and involving parents in their children’s education.

You will support teachers to meet the needs of EAL and New to English pupils and provide one-to-one mentoring support for EAL pupils. You will also develop induction programmes for newly arrived students and assist with placement of students in appropriate tutor groups and sets as well as educating and training other colleagues too.

At the top of your game, you’ll relate well to young people, collaborate effectively with other adults and work constructively as part of a team. You’ll need to be an enthusiastic team player with the ability to use initiative, work independently and stay organised.

You’ll do all this whilst capturing the spirit of our vision and values and whilst role-modelling exceptional professional behaviours.

Co-op Academy Priesthorpe is situated in Pudsey and just 15 minutes from both Leeds and Bradford centre with places for 1250 students and 135 staff. The Academy has a very special ethos, which visitors continue to comment on. Equity and equality are key drivers for us in ensuring that all students have the opportunity to excel within a highly inclusive and supportive community.

All colleagues, teachers and support, are responsible for a small coaching group of students which they meet with for 1.5 hours over a week. Full training is offered and you will be buddied up with a teaching member of staff. This adds a very rewarding element to this role.

Why us?

  • Dedicated well-being committee and well-being activities at the end of each term
  • Supportive Academy Leadership Team
  • ‘Community’ sessions once a week with free breakfast and 25 minutes to connect and chat with colleagues
  • ‘CRAFT’ sessions every 2 weeks investing in personal development for all colleagues

Our Values

We require all team members to live and breathe our core values, and be passionate about offering an outstanding education to children in our academy whilst also building character strengths to give them the best start in their journey. The right candidate will become a valuable member of the Priesthorpe community.

We follow the Co-op’s ‘Ways of Being’ which are:

  • Succeed together – Cooperating is what makes us different; we’re better and stronger when we work together.
  • Be yourself, always – We bring our best self to the academy, so that we each contribute and respect others for doing the same. Of course, being yourself isn’t about excusing poor behaviours that contradict our other Ways of Being Co-op.
  • Do what matters most – What matters most is ensuring that our students achieve the best possible outcomes.
  • Show you care – We care about our Trust, our colleagues, our students, their parents, our Co-op and communities, now and for the future.

 So, if you believe in our values and have experience for this role, we would love to hear from you!
