Isaac Newton Academy, Redbridge
Principal: Rachel Macfarlane
Cover Supervisor/Learning Assistant needed to help shape an exceptional new school.
New all-through mixed 4-18 comprehensive in Redbridge.
In September 2012 Isaac Newton Academy opened with its inaugural cohort of 180 year 7 students. The school will grow, year on year, to become an 11-18 academy of 1250 students with specialist status in mathematics and music. In 2014 the primary phase of the academy opened to 90 reception-aged children. This too will grow each year, until full in September 2020.
This is a unique opportunity to join a team of committed staff striving to create an excellent comprehensive school. We are looking for a dedicated Cover Supervisor/Learning Assistant to supervise whole classes across the academy, during the short-term absence of teachers. In addition, this role will provide in-class support alongside class teachers when not required to take classes of absent colleagues.
Our ideal candidate will:
- have experience of working effectively with secondary aged pupils
- have a clear understanding of classroom roles and responsibilities
- be highly organised, have strong numeracy and literacy skills, excellent communication skills and the ability to adapt quickly to different classroom settings
- be skilled at supervising students and establishing a constructive, safe and ordered atmosphere in the classroom
- be committed to Ark’s ethos of high expectations and no excuses
- have the resolve to make a real difference to the lives of pupils.
