Amongst other things, our LSAs provide in class support. They will co-plan directly with class teachers, create high quality resources, provide one to one interventions, run small group sessions and take responsibility for delivering programmes of support in both literacy and numeracy.

Our LSAs take part in whole school staff training and get regular input from the Speech and Language Therapist, the Borough EAL coordinator and Educational Psychologist in how to best support the needs of our students.

At The Hurlingham Academy, we play to our team’s strengths and think hard about how best to support you and the students.

This is a place where you can develop the skills you need to challenge yourself and have a positive impact on those around you.

Like all of us at The Hurlingham Academy, you will make it your mission to bring out the best in everyone, students, staff, parents and the wider community. We are confident our school will exceed your expectations and that you will help our students to do the same, with teaching that improves their life chances.

About You

The Hurlingham Academy is part of United Learning, a large and growing group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England. Schools within United Learning work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could.

We are looking for someone to join our Inclusion Team as a Learning Support Assistant (LSA). This is the ideal opportunity for aspiring teachers to experience life in a secondary school. Alternatively, you may be looking to build on current experience of supporting students and looking to develop your skill set as an LSA.

Our current LSAs are moving on to teacher training and we are looking for determined, dynamic and inspiring individuals to replace them. If this is you then please get in touch.
