We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic Learning Support Assistant to provide general support to our SENCO. This will predominantly be through the provision of in-class support to individual (or groups of) students, helping them to develop and achieve their full potential (under the direction of the class teacher). Experience and/or qualification in the English curriculum would be an advantage. You must have good numeracy and literacy skills and have experience of working with or caring for children between the ages of 11 and 18. To have completed the DFE Teacher Assistant Induction programme would also be an advantage. This post would be particularly suitable for anyone who might be interested in joining the teaching profession. Applications are also welcomed from those who would like to be considered on a job share basis.
Edgbarrow School believes in setting the highest standards in all areas of school life and we are looking for a purposeful and committed individual who wants to join and enhance our strong team. We offer an excellent induction programme, and a highly supportive working environment. For those candidates interested in career development, there will be opportunities to progress onto the HLTA pathway. The LSA role would also qualify in the admissions process for your child to attend Edgbarrow if you live out of catchment. This would come into operation after 2 years of service.
Edgbarrow is located in the village of Crowthorne, Berkshire. It is a thriving, vibrant and high-achieving secondary school where students are polite, happy, well behaved and motivated. It was recently judged by Ofsted as outstanding.
If you are interested in joining Edgbarrow School and you have the skills and the qualities required for this post, we would be delighted to hear from you.
Employment is with Corvus Learning Trust and not Bracknell Forest Council. The trust is very popular and for most posts a large number of applications are received - it is thus not possible to notify all applicants of the outcome. Please accept that if you have not heard within three weeks of the closing date then, unfortunately, your application has been unsuccessful - in which case we offer our best wishes for the future.
To apply for this post please complete the online application form via TES.

Closing Date: Friday 14 April 2023
Please note that all applications will be considered upon receipt. We reserve the right to close the advert early should the right candidate apply.
