We are seeking to appoint A Teaching and Learning Assistant to join an established SEN team whose core purpose is to support students with additional learning needs in order for them to make progress.
The key purpose of the role is to:
- Work with students with SEND in order to help them make progress.
- Liaise with parents and carers around their child’s progress.
- Monitor the progress of pupils with SEND on the caseload in order to prioritise work flow
- Identify students, develop resources and run an identified intervention session based on identified needs.
The successful candidate will have a proven track record of successfully working with pupils and professionals and must be able to demonstrate the capacity to fulfil the key purpose as outlined above. Successful experience of working with those children with SEND is desirable. Smith’s Wood is a very popular 11-18 sports college, in challenging circumstances; we are an incredibly popular choice for students and their parents.
Having moved into our new, £26 million, building in September 2009 pupils and staff benefit from educational facilities that are second to none; our sports facilities really are unrivalled! We were judged as a GOOD school by Ofsted in our last inspection. We are highly ambitious for our students; we continually strive to improve and want someone who can help us achieve that ambition.
Our mission of ‘learning together, succeeding together’ is promoted through our aims and values and practiced through ‘The Smith’s Wood Way’. This post offers an excellent opportunity to work within a dynamic, successful school, committed to professional development. Induction of new staff is carefully managed and you will be well supported. Smith’s Wood is justly proud of the professional support it gives all staff and the future opportunities it offers them.
This is a great opportunity to be involved at a pivotal moment in our journey. If you have drive, resilience & ambition and want to be part of our future success we would love to hear from you.
