Additional Information for Applicants

The following quotes are taken form our most recent staff survey in May 2022

“I have just recently started at EMS in a new role which I am enjoying and feel supported with new challenges.”

“I couldn’t feel more supported and am hugely grateful for this.”

“This school goes the extra mile to respect individuality.”

“I think one of the greatest strengths of the school is that staff are regularly given opportunities to contribute their thoughts to both small and large school decisions.”

“I love being surrounded by people who are so amazing at what they do, and I feel like I’ve progressed as a mathematician because of it.”

“The EMS culture is incredibly supportive and friendly, and I feel like I’ve made some amazing friends here.”

“EMS is an inspirational and pleasant place to work – staff are friendly and supportive and you can ask for help if there is a problem.”

 

These quotes were made the previous year (March 2021):

“I feel like there is a very good combination of teacher autonomy and support amongst staff. I have the freedom to try new things in lessons but still feel part of a team.”

“EMS is such a lovely place to work – everyone is incredibly friendly, helpful and passionate about what they do.”

“Incredibly grateful for the camaraderie over the difficult past year in particular. Everyone is focused on looking out for our students (not only their education) but not at the expense of looking after each other/ourselves.”

“I always feel respected for who I am and feel safe to voice worries without being scared I will be seen in a negative light for not being perfect.”

“I feel very well supported by the leadership at EMS and feel that the response to COVID changes have been very positive and supportive.”

“EMS really is a great place to work! We have lovely students, an incredibly supportive staff team and a leadership team who don’t just care about wellbeing as a buzzword but as a genuine priority.”

“I am 100% in love with EMS still, and believe it is all that a school should be.”

“I think I have become a better human being whilst working here due to the staff. Thank you.”

“Great place to work and really happy here. Everyone is so easy to get along with, supportive and friendly.”

As a 6th form our contracts are not typical school contracts.  As such you have an entitlement to 40 days (8 weeks) of holiday each year plus bank holidays, all of which are taken outside of term time.  In addition, we have a shut down period at Christmas which is not taken from your holiday allowance.

When you work Saturdays, you receive an additional day of holiday in lieu of the time you are in school.  For a full-time teacher this tends to be 5 days / 1 week (pro rata for part time).

Our term times are similar to Exeter College: we normally break up for school holidays about 5 to 10 days into July and return to school on A-level results day (mid-August).

In the summer, teachers will always have at least 3 consecutive weeks of leave, but there are often more weeks available.  At Easter, all teachers will have at least 1 week of leave and may be required to work for two or three days for outreach activities.  We have also, for example held admissions interviews in February half term, requiring teachers to attend for up to two days.

We don’t tend to ask teachers to attend site during non-term time unless there is a specific reason such as training, outreach, or admissions events.  These are planned at the start of the academic year, enabling teachers to plan their holiday time with certainty.

The table below is indicative of the how holidays may be taken by a full-time teacher who has worked for five Saturdays.   The total number of discretionary days leave may vary, for example, depending on when bank holidays fall over the Christmas period.

The non-teaching roles vary greatly, some staff have term-time only contracts whilst others are employed for the full year.  Some work “normal” office hours and others overnight.  The information in this section is based on a full time member of staff who works for the full year,  the principles are consistent with other roles but precise details will vary.

Full time is 37 hours a week.

The main school building is open between 0800 and 1800 on most week days and typically working hours fall between 0830 and 1800.  Notable exceptions are boarding staff who work evenings and overnight and outreach staff who sometimes need to work on Saturdays to support events.

Annual leave is for 25 days a year plus bank holidays and additional Christmas closure days.  The school has period of time over Christmas during which it is closed, this may vary each year but it is typically for two weeks.  All staff take holiday during the shutdown period but this is not taken from their annual leave, in effect adding to their overall holiday allowance.   The real beauty of this is that with every member of staff on holiday,  you wont return in the New Year to an enormous string of emails and messages!

Non-teaching staff are expected to take their annual leave when students are on school holidays.  In exceptional circumstances exceptions will be made but taking leave during the term time is not the norm.

Employee Assist Programme (EAP)

All EMS employees have access to a range of resources and support through the Health Assured  EAP.  The programme includes:

  • Free 24/7 counselling, legal and information line
  • Critical incident advice & telephone support
  • Online health portal & access to the My healthy Advantage app

Exeter College Facilities

Our staff and students have access to the facilities at Exeter College including HR support and Gym membership (for a small fee).

Light Refreshments

It’s a small gesture of our appreciation for your work that we provide tea, coffee and milk for staff and no charge.  We hope it makes your day a little easier.

Pensions

Teachers are entitled to join the Teachers’ Pension Scheme: Teachers’ Pensions

Non-teaching staff are entitled to join the Local Government Pension Scheme: LGPS member site

Small Team with Big Support

The staff team is truly fantastic, welcoming, helpful and kind.  It’s one of the very best things about working here (the students being the other).  It’s not possible to overstate just how supportive they are – if you’re having a tough day someone will pick you up, if you’ve had a brilliant success, your colleagues will celebrate with you.

Vivup Benefits Scheme

This scheme offers EMS staff a range of lifestyle savings vouchers from retailers, typically giving up to 5% off a purchase.  It also gives access to Salary Sacrifice benefits which include:

  • Cycle to Work
  • Home and Electronics
  • Gym Membership
