What the school offers its staff

At Burwell Village College we believe that every child has the ability to succeed if we give them the right opportunities. We have recently rewritten our curriculum to reflect the highest standards in all curriculum areas. We know that giving children support in areas they need is crucial to their success in life, making them believe that they can achieve anything.

We have a number of children who require additional support to ensure that they can access the curriculum fully. We are keen that all children develop their independent skills but also recognise that this requires teaching and support in more detail for some of our children. You would work as part of a team to support identified pupils in lessons and at lunchtimes and break times. Initially the role is likely to be supporting a specific child but we want to develop a team who can work with multiple children with different needs throughout the school. The role is overseen by the SENDCo who will provide support and training as necessary.

The children here are well-behaved, hard-working and eager to learn. The facilities are fantastic with space and equipment readily available, including a well-being room and a developing sensory and breakout room. Parents are keen to support the school and are positive about the improvements already being made.

This is a brilliant opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable children. If you really want to have a measurable impact on children’s life chances, Burwell could be the school for you. If you have the knowledge and skills we are looking for then we would be really keen to hear from you.
