Teaching Assistant (SEN & Medical Needs) job summary

The King's CofE Academy is looking to appoint an inspirational and experienced Teaching Assistant to provide support in addressing the needs (including SEND and medical) of pupils to help overcome barriers to learning. The successful candidate will have specialist SEND knowledge in providing appropriate support to students in relation to their individual (including complex) needs.

In addition to delivering classroom and small intervention group support for students, the postholder will have particular responsibility for the co-ordination of medical care plans, including individual risk assessments and PEEPs where appropriate.

We are looking for someone who:

  • has a passion for working with young people and enabling them to flourish
  • is calm and patient
  • is keen to be involved in all aspects of academy life
  • has excellent English and Maths skills, as well as being creative
  • can support the Christian ethos and values of the academy.

The King’s Academy is a fantastic place to work if you want to make a positive impact on students’ life chances. We focus not only on student wellbeing but also staff wellbeing. We are clear that in order to serve our students well, staff need to feel valued and supported and to focus their time and energies on what they do best. We have a calm and orderly academy because we have a simple and clearly understood approach to ensuring high standards of behaviour. We consult regularly with staff on any changes that will impact on their workload and we invest heavily in the professional development of colleagues. We also take care of some of the more practical benefits such as our electric car salary sacrifice scheme, discounted gym membership, and our car valeting service. The collective end result of these measures, and more, is a community of colleagues who want to stay working at The King’s.

Suitable candidates may be interviewed before the closing date and we reserve the right to withdraw the position if an early appointment is made.

Our academy is a superb place to grow, to learn, to work and to flourish. As a relatively new academy (we opened in January 2016 and moved into our superb new build in November 2016), we are keen to retain our place as ‘the school of choice in Kidsgrove’.



Our motto ‘Learning with truth and love’ epitomises the values towards which our governors, our staff and our students strive to embody. Students are consistently inspired and encouraged to become everything that God has created them to be, through a wide ranging and inclusive curriculum and a wealth of exciting enrichment opportunities. We work hard to create a vibrant, mutually supportive climate for learning in which everyone can thrive.



Staff lead by example and are passionate about encouraging, inspiring, challenging and stretching every individual in their care, so that they can achieve at the highest levels. We do our utmost to maximise the attainment of each student, placing great emphasis on individual character development and personal growth.



We are an inclusive school with students of all abilities and social backgrounds. For those students with individual learning and physical needs, we have an extensive inclusion team. Our staff make every effort to get to know each student as an individual.



Our well embedded ‘Behaviour for Learning’ policy is designed to encourage positive attitudes to lessons and to ensure students’ behaviour underpins their learning. A recent external assessment describes behaviour in lessons as 'exemplary'.



Our mission is to enable students to leave The King's with outstanding results and life changing experiences, equipped to be responsible and caring citizens ready to make their mark on the world in which they live.

Staff turnover at The King’s is really low: people want to stay and work here. The academy is a community of its own. Colleagues join us from the local area and from further afield - it is a place where professionals want to work.
