Kensington Aldridge Academy (KAA) is a vibrant new 11 - 18 school in Ladbroke Grove, West London. We opened in brand new buildings in 2014 and our facilities are second to none. We currently have 370 students in Years 7 & 8 with us, and are growing every year. Our Sixth Form opens in September 2016. In a recent inspection the DfE described us as, “one of the best new academies we have ever seen.” Miriam Rosen, former Ofsted Chief Inspector, said, “KAA has got off to a remarkable start and is already securing highly positive outcomes for students.”
At KAA we offer a quality and standard that are unique in the state sector. We are partnered with the Godolphin & Latymer and Charterhouse independent schools and LAMDA and the Royal Academy of Dance. Situated in stunning new buildings, we have facilities to rival any school.
At KAA we are working to build an exceptional school with the highest possible standards and to do that, of course, we need an exceptional staff team. We ask a lot from our staff, expecting them to deliver excellent lessons, day in day out. We also provide extensive support and professional development opportunities. In a start-up school, with a central focus on teaching and learning, you will have the space to extend your classroom skills which would be hard to find elsewhere.
You will be part of a specialist learning support service, supporting the inclusion of SEN students (including students with Autism), and adapt and deliver support to meet individual needs whilst promote academic achievement.
You will develop and maintain effective and supportive relationships with a case load of students in order to support their specific learning and emotional needs.
You will advance students' learning in a range of classroom settings, while providing ongoing support outside the classroom through 1-1, group sessions and specialist enrichment programmes.
You will use behaviour management strategies effectively and in line with the school’s policy and procedures, and fully contribute to a professional and purposeful learning environment.
You will promote the inclusion of all students ensuring that they have equal access to opportunities to learn and develop.
You will work within an extended range of networks and partnerships to broker support and learning opportunities and improve the quality of services to students.
You will plan and deliver sequences of learning to ensure that students identified with specific needs make outstanding progress.
You will monitor the well-being and progress of individual students and maintain excellent communication with all stakeholders.
