Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School, (rated Good by OFSTED in September 2016), is looking to recruit a Learning Support Assistant who can provide excellent additional support to students with learning difficulties. Cardinal Wiseman has a growing cohort of students with SEN, and this appointment will help ensure that we maintain and develop our high quality of additional support for those students. 

As a Catholic school, we recognise the special nature of every individual and celebrate differences between us. The right candidate will be passionate about reducing disadvantage and improving academic outcomes. They will be able to deliver small group and individual interventions, which adapt to meet the Special Educational Needs of each student. Excellent literacy and numeracy skills are therefore a prerequisite. Good communication and team work skills are crucial because of how we share information about students’ needs and progress. A degree of flexibility is also required, as the role will include some in-class support of students, as well as some input with students who have social emotional and mental health needs. 

The Learning Support Department is building on its current good practice, and seeking to appoint somebody who can fully commit to this, embracing our values of care and compassion, which are essential for the students we serve, as we strive to help them realise their fullest educational potential. If you are interested in this role and would like to request an informal visit, please contact Nicki Broome on 01213606383, or email at recruitment@cardinalwiseman.net

Closing date: 24th January 2020 - 9am

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
