King's Academy BinfieldBracknell Forest

Date posted:
Start date: October 2019
Contract type: Full Time / Part Time
Salary: £17,364 pa FTE plus London Fringe Allowance
Contract term: Permanent

We are looking for two passionate, talented, collegiate practitioners to join our dedicated team working within the Learning Support Department and across the whole academy including King’s Academy Binfield and King’s Academy Oakwood.

The successful candidates will be part of a team of Learning Support Assistants led by our Assistant Principal/SENCo, who will share and learn from one another as the academy grows. 

Our new Learning Support Assistants will work with students on both a 1:1 basis and with small groups, as well as supporting within the classroom.   Experience of working with students with additional needs would be an advantage although not essential. They will share the academy's vision and the belief that all young people can achieve, whatever it takes.

Other necessary qualities include confidentiality, efficiency and being able to work on your own initiative and under pressure.  There is an expectation of a willingness to contribute to the wider life of King’s Academy Binfield (KAB) and King’s Academy Oakwood (KAO).

KAB opened in a superb new building in September 2018 with 120 students in Year 7.  The primary phase, including nursery, at KAB and KAO, will open in September 2019.  In addition to this, we will also welcome 150 more year 7s.

As new builds, KAB and KAO enjoy outstanding facilities, both internally and externally. We have appointed outstanding founding staff thus far, and now seek to add this key role to our team. As a new and rapidly growing academy, this is a rare and exciting opportunity.

The post is for 32.5 hours per week (full time, part time hours will be considered), 39 weeks per year. There is also the possibility of working with our wrap around care provider (Funtastic Kids) supporting with the running of a breakfast club and an after school club. 

KAB and KAO are part of the King’s Group Academies MAT led by a team of former and current Ofsted ‘outstanding’ head teachers and Her Majesty’s Inspectors (HMI).  Please note link to King’s Group Academies Vision and Mission - https://kingsacademies.uk/about-us/vision-and-mission/   

King’s Education separately operates British schools abroad, educating over 4,000 students in countries such as Spain, Latvia and Panama, offering exciting opportunities for genuine international collaboration.

King’s Academy Binfield and King’s Academy Oakwood are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young students and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will need to undertake an Enhanced DBS check.
