This post would suit a flexible, energetic and forward-thinking person who is keen to support the academy as it grows on its journey to outstanding. The Learning Support Practitioner role will include liaison with both teaching staff and students, as well as external partner agencies and parents, so good communication and relationship skills are key. Ofsted (November 2019) say “Staff support pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) well. Teachers take pupils’ needs into account when planning learning. Teaching assistants provide the right support in class when pupils need it.”
The ability to work confidentially is important, and we would prefer someone with previous experience in schools or working with young people. Your enthusiasm and motivation will support the SEN provision in our academy.
In the United Endeavour Trust we are preparing young people for life in the 21st Century. We believe passionately that our pupils should leave school with the skills, qualifications and attitudes to prepare them for adulthood. This is best achieved through a challenging and demanding curriculum that provides many opportunities for learning and stretches pupils in many different ways. We want those we teach to understand that secondary education is one part of a lifelong learning process. To do this our approach is positive and outward looking and our teaching and support staff are committed to a programme of continuous improvement.
United Endeavour Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check applies to all roles within our Trust.
In line with Keeping Children Safe in Education 2023, please be aware that online searches of shortlisted candidates may take place as part of our due diligence processes.
