King Henry School has a core team of Teaching Assistants, locally known within the school as Inclusion and Support Assistants. We have a number of opportunities now available and are keen to receive applications from candidates that are passionate about working with secondary-aged students to support their learning. Working with students on a 1-to-1 basis, in small groups or with general assistance for whole classes, the role of a Teaching Assistant is varied but fundamentally relies on continuity of support to be successful. Working under the line management of the SENCO, you'll provide intervention for learners who may be struggling to ensure they are still able to access learning from an academic and welfare perspective. Our ideal candidates will be patient, empathetic and able to adapt to working with students from different backgrounds and with differing needs.
The working basis of this role is 36 hours per week during Term Time plus 1 week inset.
Note that Leigh Academies Trust is currently supporting King Henry School to recruit exceptional staff who can make an immediate positive impact on the school community and all of its students. This is a hugely exciting time to join King Henry School and for our staff to work together under the remarkable leadership of John Dixon, Principal.
