The Schools Library Service (SLS) supports learning in schools by providing quality resources, expertise and advice. By using the Schools Library Service schools, academies and early years settings can save time and get greater value for money, can access resources to support curriculum needs, can keep schools’ own resources updated and take full advantage of professional expertise and specialist knowledge. By working with secondaries and their families of schools SLS aim to help improve pupils’ literacy attainment. We aim to stimulate the enjoyment of books and reading and encourage the lifelong skills required for independent learning.

Headteacher Recruitment Service
Appointing a member of your leadership whether that be a Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher or Assistant Headteacher is probably one of the most important tasks that a Governing Body undertakes. There is considerable evidence indicating that the quality of a School’s leadership particularly the Headteacher, is the single most significant factor in its success.
We understand the importance of this appointment and provide support to the Governors and Selection Panel throughout the recruitment lifecycle by working in partnership to achieve a thorough and planned process that in turn will ensure the best possible candidate is appointed.
We attend the initial Governors meeting to provide examples of advert wording, welcome letters from the chair, information about the role, job specification and person specification. At this initial meeting we’ll also calculate the school group size, applicable Individual Pay Range (IPR), and support the Selection Panel in setting a salary range that is compliant with legislation.
Throughout the recruitment cycle the Chair of Governors has a named HR contact allocated to them from the Schools Support Team to provide advice and support to ensure best practice and compliance with safer recruitment is maintained throughout.
Learning Support Service
The Learning Support Service provides all primary and secondary settings within the Wakefield local authority area with an advisory teacher to support school-aged pupils with cognition, learning or language needs. We work with a range of cognitive difficulties including Severe and Moderate Learning Difficulties; Specific Learning Difficulties and Speech and Language needs where pupils have weak expressive or receptive vocabularies.
