PolyMAT is looking to appoint Learning Support Assistants to start in September 2019 for both the already established boys’ school and the girls’ school which is due to open in September.
Our vision is ‘success for everyone’ and we are looking for staff that can bring this vision to reality. There are two schools in the PolyMAT multi academy trust, an all-inclusive boys’ school (co-educational at Post 16), rated good in its last inspection (2019) and a brand-new state-of-the-art girls’ school, opening in September. The Trust prides itself on a culture of high standards and values from staff and pupils. The Learning Support Assistant role is demanding yet rewarding and this is a Trust where students and staff feel valued and supported.
We are looking for reliable and committed individuals with the qualities, skills and drive necessary to fulfil this role. You will be working with students with special educational needs, helping them to achieve their targets as set out in their Individual Education Plans.
You will be required to support teaching staff to match individual needs across the curriculum for students with a wide range of learning difficulties to encourage the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of all pupils.
You should have a good all-round education with A’ Levels and GCSE grade C or above in English and Mathematics (or equivalent). A degree is desirable but not essential. Some experience of work with students of secondary school age is preferable.
As a member of staff at PolyMAT, we can offer you:
• Opportunities for career progression
• Excellent professional development
• A contributory pension scheme
• Opportunities to collaborate with outstanding and dynamic teaching professionals
• An employee assistance programme
• Childcare vouchers
• Season ticket loans
• Finders fees for personal introductions of staff that we employ
• Excellent catering facilities
The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, including the need for the successful candidate to undertake a disclosure and barring check via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
The Trust is also committed to promoting equality, challenging discrimination and developing community cohesion. We welcome applications from all sections of the community.
Details of the role and the application form are available on the school’s website
The closing date for applications is Monday 24 June 2019. Interviews will be scheduled for later that week.
