What skills and experience we're looking for

The Governors wish to appoint some additional Learning Support Assistants to join our existing team and to support students, especially those with SEND, throughout the school. The successful applicants will be hard working, flexible, and have excellent communication skills. It is essential that any applicant enjoys working with and supporting young people, as this is an essential part of the role, however we encourage you to apply, even if you do not already have direct experience of working with children or young people, as full training and unstinting support will be given. We are looking for individuals who can engage with students and support them in overcoming a range of learning difficulties. The successful candidates would also need to be prepared to support the Catholic/Christian ethos at St Mary’s in this role. English to GCSE or equivalent is required.

What the school offers its staff

St Mary’s is a very popular and happy school, rated Outstanding by the Diocese and Ofsted. We became an academy in 2013 and enjoy outstanding facilities in a new building, which opened in 2011. We joined the Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust in June 2020. We are also very popular with parents and are one of the most over-subscribed schools in the North-East. The roll has grown from around 1100 five years ago to over 1440 by September 2023, with 5 main school year groups of around 235 and a Sixth Form of approximately 270 students. We expect the Sixth Form to continue to grow in the next couple of years, as strongly academic year groups continue to move into Sixth Form.

As an Outstanding school, St Mary’s plays a leading role within the Trust and more widely, leading significant school improvement, training and leadership development across other schools, as well as sharing good practice in academic achievement and teaching and learning across many other schools in the north-east. We also play a leading role in teacher training across the region.
