The main responsibilities of this role are as follows:

  • To support the phase leader and teacher in the delivery of support to students with social emotional and mental health needs.
  • To complement the work of teachers by supporting the individual needs of students for whom behaviour, attendance and other factors are barriers to learning
  • Providing classroom support to those who have barriers to learning to ensure they have access the curriculum and are able to work independently and within groups to make progress.
  • To support the supervision of students during break and lunch times
  • To support the Pastoral Team in managing behaviour, being on hand to support throughout the day across all year groups.


Successful applicants will be passionate about transforming the lives of young people and bring with them an abundance of enthusiasm which can encourage engagement and commitment from our students. Whilst experience is not necessary, you must have a good standard of literacy, be adaptable and willing to be involved in all aspects of school life, have a calm manner and be able to work as part of a team. You will enjoy nurturing young people to help them grow in confidence and flourish personally. You will share our inclusive values of “opportunity, diversity and success for all”. In return, you will be joining our team of tenacious, optimistic and talented support staff, who have the support of an experienced leadership team

The Trust reserves the right to interview and appoint before the closing date.
