Our Opportunity
We are looking for to appoint a number of Teaching Assistants who have experience with special needs education, who have a real passion to support and enable the learning and development of the children in our brand new academy. The position will appeal to experienced teaching assistants and in particular individuals who have other skills to offer like a background in the Arts, Technology, IT, PE or mental health, as we feel these attributes will complement the role well. THRIVE practitioners would also add to our school’s offer.

We are looking for practitioners who have an innovative approach to their work and aren’t afraid to think of new and interesting approaches to the support they offer.

We looking for practitioners to work with pupils across the Primary age range and up to Year 10, although the age range will eventually include post-16 provision. You will be supporting learners within their classroom environment as well as their personal and social development during socialising periods through break and lunch times. The role may also involve supporting pupils who are accessing an alternate provision away from the school environment.

Whether you are an experienced teaching assistant who has worked within specialist educational needs or someone who has exceptional vocational skills and a real drive to make a difference in children’s lives, you must be able to provide our children with aspirations for their futures along with promoting a positive culture in everything you do.

What you can expect
• An exciting opportunity to join brand new special academy with a fantastic cohort of pupils
• A thriving environment where you will be supported and encouraged to think in new ways
• An opportunity to join colleagues who will make you proud to be part of our state education system.
• Access to tailored CPD through Nexus Academies Trust and the Opportunity Area which includes pathways into Initial Teaching Training.
• Working within an award winning MAT who pride themselves on having friendly supportive schools who together are helping to transform communities
