Sawston Village College is a high-achieving, successful 11-16 academy, with a reputation for innovation in teaching and learning, outstanding pupil behaviour and inclusive, caring values. A founding member of the Anglian Learning group of schools, we are situated just outside the beautiful city of Cambridge, offering first class professional development opportunities to our staff and a supportive, friendly environment in which to work.

The College is committed to retaining young people in mainstream education wherever possible. To support this philosophy the College has its own inclusion facility, known as Compass House, which caters for pupils with behavioural and medical needs, as well as those on alternative education programmes. We are now seeking to appoint an Inclusion Support Assistant who will work closely with the Inclusion Manager to support the full range of young people using Compass House. You will have excellent interpersonal skills, empathy with young people, especially those disengaged with mainstream school, and will also strive to keep pupils in school while providing a firm but fair approach to behaviour management. Previous educational experience is desirable, but more important is the ability to understand and influence pupils in order to help improve their life chances.
