We are seeking to appoint a Learning Support Assistant to work in the Special Educational Needs department and join our team of practitioners. If you are a dedicated person looking for a small friendly school, focused on providing an inclusive environment for children to develop both academically and socially, this could be a great opportunity for you.

Applicants need to be resourceful, adaptable, physically fit, able to show initiative, ready to learn new skills, quick-thinking, calm under pressure, resilient, determined and caring.

Experience or qualifications in working with pupils with SEN is desirable but not essential as further training will be provided. A minimum Level 2 qualification in English and Maths is essential.

The Candidate
The successful candidate will be:
• resourceful
• adaptable
• physically fit
• able to show initiative
• ready to learn new skills
• quick-thinking
• calm under pressure
• resilient
• determined
• caring
• Level 2 qualified in English and Maths

The School
We are proud of our reputation as a small, friendly school, built on strong, traditional values, where exceptional pastoral care, the acceptance of others and the celebration of diversity and excellent academic achievement for all are the cornerstones of our success. We have a committed, loyal and talented team of leaders, teachers and support staff. As a new member of staff you will be well supported, we see professional learning as a major strategic priority.

Our last Ofsted inspection was very successful, with the team praising our rapidly improving school.
