Ark Academy is an all-through school based in state-of-the-art accommodate in Wembley, set against the backdrop of the iconic Wembley Stadium, with excellent transport links.
We are currently seeking a Learning Support Assistant (LSA), who will provide specific and direct support to pupils with Special Educational needs or a Disability (SEND), ensuring that these students make good progress in the mainstream curriculum. You will work alongside the SENCo and class teachers to provide in-class support in Key Stage 3-5
A calm and patient manner is essential, as is a nurturing approach to pupil development. A good understanding of the academy’s teaching and learning and behaviour policies are desirable, and specific training will be provided to support you in the role. Prior experience of a specific curriculum area should be included in your application. Liaising with the SENCo, class teachers and the parents of the children will all form part of your role.
As a member of Ark Academy you will receive support and professional development geared towards excellence.

This ensures as a member of Ark Academy, your time is never wasted dealing with discipline. Our students know what is expected of them, allowing students to focus on learning and our staff to focus on what they do best.
