Richmond Park Academy is part of the Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) group and is situated in East Sheen, close to Richmond Park. Richmond, Kingston and the West End are all between 15 and 30 minutes journey from the school and our proximity to central London means that students can benefit enormously from the vast range of social, cultural, sporting and academic opportunities that we are able to access.

Our student body is diverse, exciting and talented – and the same is true of our staff.  We put huge emphasis on professional development, most of it in-house, and are proud of the high number of good and outstanding teachers who work in our school.  We are also noted for our ‘can do’ attitude.  We are keen, always, to encourage new and/or young staff to make their mark as soon as they are ready.

The school completed a £10m rebuild and refurbishment programme, including the introduction of a 6th form in 2014. Our 2018 Ofsted reported that we were a ‘good’ school in all categories.  The inspectors judged: “The principal is respected across the school and has communicated a clear vision for the school to all members of the school community. He has empowered the leadership team to raise standards and hold staff to account for pupils’ outcomes through a relentless focus on improving teaching and learning. Staff feel well supported and happy to be part of the drive for improvement”. 

We are looking for a caring and nurturing individual to work alongside one of our EHCP pupils at KS4.  You will have worked previously with Social, Emotional and Mental Health SEN students and have the ability to establish quickly a positive relationship in order to stretch and maximize their learning. You will be working on a one to one basis in line with the national curriculum, codes of practice and more widely, the Academy.

You will also be an excellent administrator, being able to work on your own initiative, in order to prepare well for the student, as well as being part of a team.   He or she will be a committed and hardworking team player who will support the pupils, staff and parents in continuing to raise the profile and ongoing success of the department and, more widely, the Academy. 

AET believes that each and every child is inspired to choose a remarkable life.  Our mission is to gather and motivate inspirational people committed to delivering an excellent education that launches children into remarkable lives. 

Our values are:

  • Be unusually brave
  • Discover what’s possible
  • Push the limits
  • Be big-hearted

We offer:

  • Excellent career prospects across the network, with a culture of looking to promote from within
  • Access to CPD to enable you to grow and develop in your role
  • An annual season ticket loan (where applicable)
  • Teachers' Pension or Local Government Pension Scheme
  • Something we take very seriously is staff WELLBEING. That’s why we have partnered up with BHSF to provide support and employee benefits, such as a health cash plan scheme to support healthcare, discounted gym membership and a employee assistance programme
  • A generous annual leave allowance
  • The opportunity to use Google Suite, which allows you to do your best work, all in one suite
  • Free car parking (where applicable)

This role is to commence as soon as possible and applications will be considered upon receipt.
