Learning Support Assistant


We know just how important it is to think big and to help break those glass ceilings faced by young people today. Together we can encourage our pupils to step out from their comfort zones, build self-esteem and broaden their horizons.


Keen to challenge young people with opportunities they may not even know exists yet? We aim to raise pupils’ aspirations so they begin to believe in themselves and understand that there is no thing holding them back, including where they happen to live or their family’s experience in education.


We have two vacancies within our academy, and you will primarily be working with pupils in receipt of top up funding or an EHCP. You may also be required to support their medical needs. Experience in supporting pupils with additional needs including Speech, Language & Communication needs would be beneficial.


The contracts are full time (33.5 hours per week, Monday to Friday) and are temporary contracts. Actual salary ranges from £15,309.56 - £15927.90 depending on experience (FTE £19,312 - £20,092). We require the successful candidates to commence employment as soon as possible.


Candidates should hold a relevant qualification for the role ie NVQ level 2 as a minimum along with functioning skills (Maths & English Grade A-C), NVQ level 3 is desirable however not essential.


For a full description of the role, see the job description and job specification. We encourage you to get in touch with any questions; better still come and see us for yourself! Please contact the main school reception directly to arrange school visits.
