Learning Support Assistant

Mount St Mary's Catholic High SchoolLeeds

Mount St Mary’s serves a community rich in different cultures and backgrounds. We are rightly proud of the impact we have and work tirelessly to ensure our students are a credit to themselves, the school and their families. According to Ofsted:

“Pupils conduct themselves in a mature and positive manner during lessons and around school.”


“Leaders provide pupils with high-quality opportunities for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.”

Our successful SEND team provide opportunities for students with wide ranging difficulties to make excellent progress and we encourage all children to succeed. Our Learning Support Assistants have a variety of skills and we endeavour to make sure that our staff are given high quality professional development to enable them to progress either within our school or beyond. Many of our LSAs have gone on to teach or to take up further positions of responsibility within our school.

Opportunities are given in school to develop a wider range of inclusion skills which will enhance career progression, for many this has led to a promotion of position and in some cases enrolment onto Teaching courses. We are a team that recognises the worth of the individual, and as such strive to support all SEND students to allow them to be successful in every way and achieve their goals and aspirations. We would welcome applications from enthusiastic candidates who believe in a strong team ethic, have a passion for SEND and Inclusion, can set high expectations for themselves and others, are flexible and adaptable and can demonstrate a resilience in ensuring every individual is recognised for their potential. 

We encourage applications both from those wishing to begin a career working in schools and those with experience who wish to further develop their skills and expertise. 

The post is temporary for 12 months in the first instance and subject to a 6 month probationary period.  28 hours per week, term time only plus 2 days.

Closing date - 9am Friday 17 September 2021
