This is an exciting time to be joining our Academy, as we continue to develop our SEN provision. We need an enthusiastic Teaching Assistant who can support our students and teaching staff on our journey of improvement.  

Ofsted (November 2019) state “Staff support pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) well. Teachers take pupils’ needs into account when planning learning. Teaching assistants provide the right support in class when pupils need it.” The successful applicant will be able to support our students in the classroom and in smaller groups. The role will also include providing confidential pastoral support and liaising with external partner agencies, as well as working closely with parents, so good relationship, listening and communication skills are essential.

You will benefit from a supportive and challenging leadership, which empowers you to develop your own skills.
