Marjory Kinnon School is a successful and growing special school for children and young people with moderate and severe learning difficulties, a high proportion of whom have a diagnosis of Autism. Ofsted has judged the school as ‘Good’ with behaviour being judged as outstanding. We are very proud of what we have achieved to date at Marjory Kinnon and more importantly, we are proud of the pupils who learn and excel here.
In January 2018 we will be moving into a new £30m purpose built school, which will better meet the needs of our pupils and enhance their education. We are a happy, friendly and supportive team of professionals, who are committed to raising standards through continuous development and enhancing the learning experiences of our pupils.
We are currently recruiting teaching assistants to work with pupils in our Early Years department. We have very small class sizes (typically 6-8 pupils per class) with a high ratio of staff to pupils. We are looking for candidates who have knowledge of how to work alongside and support pupils with barriers to learning, both sensitively and creatively.
On appointment you will receive a comprehensive induction programme, a wide range of CPD opportunities as well as ongoing support from the school leadership team. We potentially can offer training routes into teaching for appropriately qualified applicants.
If shortlisted, you will be required to spend one full day in our school. You will be allocated to a class team for the day, you will have an interview and skill test to complete. These will all form part of the decision process.
Closing Date: Monday 15th May 2017
Interview Date: 24th or 26th May 2017
