What skills and experience we're looking for

Our school is a very special place to work and we are looking to recruit a suitably qualified and motivated individual to support the learning of our students who have a range of additional needs. Our students are keen to learn and are positive about receiving support to enable them to become independent learners. This role involves the opportunity to work with pupils across the whole school.

The role of the LSA involves working with young people and children who require additional support within the classroom by creating safe and encouraging environment so they can make the most of their education. The successful LSA would be working on a 1-1 basis or in small groups helping children with their educational, behavioural and social development or supporting pupils whose English is not a first language, have health issues or disability.

We are looking for a person who puts children and their learning at the centre of their work. We believe that building respectful relationships with children and their families is very important and that children learn best when they are happy, calm and safe.

Please be aware, that we will review applications as we receive them and reserve the right to close this posting once suitable candidates have been found. We encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible in order to be considered.

Further details about the role

Redland Green School is a special place, with a community culture, in which everyone belongs. With our values of RESPECT, AMBITION and RESPONSIBILITY at the centre of all we do, we are immensely proud of the atmosphere of care and kindness felt in classrooms and corridors, offices and social spaces.

Whilst academic excellence is always a focus, it is our dedication to whole-person development that makes our school unique. We promote and prioritise staff learning just as much as student learning; believing that teachers and support staff, engaged in their own development, make the very best role models and create exciting classrooms for our students. We do not believe in a one-size fits all approach to education and so welcome teachers with a love of their subject, who are keen to learn more about their craft and plan effective and exciting lessons.

As such we offer an excellent CPD programme. This has been designed to sustain a professional and vibrant learning community, where every member of staff sees themselves as a learner and contributes to the continued development of the school. With this in mind, we are looking for staff with the creative energy and commitment to make the most of the opportunities available, fostering the very best climate for learning, for all our young people.

If appointed at RGS, you will be welcomed into a community that cares for you, challenges and champions your development, with a commitment to your career in education, that will be happy and successful.
