Are you looking for an exciting challenge in a new environment? An excellent opportunity has become available for innovative and enthusiastic SEN Learning Mentors at Horbury Academy. 

We are seeking to appoint to the roles of SEN Learning Mentors (subject specific) and SEN Learning Mentors (student one to one support) working with the SEN Learning Manager and the SENCO on curriculum provision and learning support for targeted pupils at risk of significant underachievement. SEN Learning Mentors providing one to one support will work with pupils with enhanced needs. 

In these varied roles applicants will be required to demonstrate flexibility, have some experience of working with vulnerable/challenged/challenging children and young people and the ability to communicate effectively with colleagues and pupils alike. 

At Horbury Academy, we strive to create an environment where students enjoy learning and are given the opportunity to stretch themselves both academically and also through a wide range of other extra-curricular activities. Our success is founded on traditional values set in a warm, friendly environment.   

Horbury Academy is part of the Accord Multi Academy Trust which is a Wakefield based Trust; all four academies in the Trust are closely located to one another which lends itself to many opportunities to work closely and collaboratively. All academies are within a three mile radius of one another and can be found a short drive off junction 40 of the M1. 

Talk to our staff or pupils and you will find out how proud we are of our unique academy, its supportive atmosphere and strong team ethos. We encourage interested candidates to see what makes us great! Contact the HR team on 01924 282748 or and we would be happy to answer any other questions you may have.
