The successful candidate will provide support for students as identified by the Additional Learning Team. Good levels of numeracy and literacy are required (GCSE or equivalent in English and Maths). Previous school experience and specialist qualifications are not essential, as it is more important for the successful candidate to show empathy, resilience, initiative, dedication to our students, and a good sense of humour.

28.5hrs per week term time only plus an additional 5 days to be made up through meetings before/ after school (equivalent to 40 weeks per year)
