What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint an experienced Level 3 Teaching Assistant to support students with SEND, for example ASD and SEMH, in order to facilitate their access to the curriculum and maximise their independence.

The successful applicant must have the ability to establish effective relationships with young people and teaching staff.

Being an effective communicator is critical due to the needs of students and therefore excellent written and spoken English is essential. You must be highly organised, with good time management skills and be IT literate.

Applicants must be able to deal sensitively with matters of confidence whilst following the School Child Protection policy, for which training will be given.

'This school is a truly special place. Pupils flourish here' Ofsted March 2022.

Lawrence Sheriff School is an outstanding boys’ grammar school of approximately 1140 students, around 425 of whom are in our coeducational sixth form. As a National Teaching School, we have played a significant role in initial teacher training and continuous professional development across the region.

'This school is a truly special place. Pupils flourish here’ (Ofsted, 2022).

Lawrence Sheriff School is a boys’ grammar school with a co-education sixth form. We have approximately 1080 students, over 380 of whom are in the sixth form. We believe that much of our success - including our consistently high Ofsted grading and our high rankings in DFE performance tables - can be directly linked to our emphasis upon LSS being a happy place to work for both pupils and staff. The 2022 Ofsted report goes on to say that ‘the passion that pupils have for their learning is palpable’ and 'there is a clear culture of mutual respect between staff and students'.These comments sum up the distinctive ethos and values of the school. As a National Teaching School, we have played a significant role in initial teacher training and continuous professional development across the region. Our Teaching School Hub status now enables us to offer all staff varied and interesting opportunities to enhance their practice.
