This is an exciting opportunity to join us in our inaugural year at Houlton School which has welcomed our first Year 7 students in September 2021, with 6 forms of entry. Our school will serve our local community - a new housing community of 6,200 homes to be built over the next 15 years; we will be the only secondary school on the development and will set the standard for delivering excellence in education as well as providing a valuable community resource via our facilities. Our Teaching Assistant role will provide support for us with formulating and realising our ambitious strategic vision for a world-class education; together, we will take over custodianship of Houlton’s heritage as a global hub for communication, the arts and world class engineering. Your specific remit will be to work closely with the Head of Faculty for Inclusion in supporting our pupils with additional needs. You will be working to support pupils to make good progress and show positive behaviour for learning both in class and in 1:1 or small group interventions.
We are in the fortunate position to be able to work with our Trust’s outstanding secondary academy, Ashlawn School during our opening year. We have available to us all of Ashlawn’s resources, but also enjoy the freedom to develop our own ways of working as quickly as is practical so that we can be certain our pastoral provision reflects our own school’s vision and ethos. You will be a positive and proactive individual with experience in working with young people. You will be a flexible team player, who responds well to the unique challenges
and quickly changing environment of a brand new free school. Experience of working in a secondary environment and or working with children with additional needs would be an advantage. You will be a strong role model who rolls up their sleeves and gets stuck in with day-to-day operations. You actively seek out ways of improving your own performance and that of others, in order to ensure our pupils and the wider organisation are highly efficient, effective and sustainable. At your core is a strong moral purpose to provide the best deal for all stakeholders, but especially for the children and young people whom we serve.
Whether you are currently working in a school or are looking to move into the education sector, we are looking forward to reading your application.
