A friendly, small, and high achieving, independent co-educational school for pupils aged between 2 and 16, is seeking a teaching assistant from September.
The successful candidate is required to support a child with special educational needs, and recent experience of support pupils with social, emotional and mental health needs - including attachment disorders, is vital. Experience of supporting pupils with Dyslexia is also an advantage.
The school aims to encourage the personal development of all of its pupils by providing a wide range of both curricular and extracurricular stimulation. Through the two houses, pupils are able to develop self-esteem and consideration for one another, and because this is a small school, the bond between staff and pupils is excellent.
The school's mission is to develop pupils’ interest in learning, which is reflected in consistent academic success and most recently, 83% of pupils gained 5 or more GCSEs at A* to C in the 2014 exams, with 24% of the grades being A or A*. This is an amazing achievement for a non-selective school, where the pupils were only predicted to get 3.5% A and A* grades.
The majority of the pupils exceeded their expected results, yet the school's concern is and always will be to help pupils to do their best and to leave their care well rounded and intelligent young people. To play a crucial role in supporting the educational and emotional needs of pupils at the school -please apply with your CV today.
