 (Based at ‘Little Bridge’ School Rd, Rugeley WS15 2PD)

We are seeking to appoint an experienced Inclusion Assistant with behaviour management experience to join us at our established Primary Short Stay School.  You will have experience in managing challenging behaviour and supporting both learners and families.

Our primary provision, Little Bridge, is based in Rugeley, Staffordshire. Little Bridge provides an education for up to a maximum of 16 students in the Lichfield, Rugeley, Burntwood, Cannock and Stafford area. Our students are either permanently excluded from school or attend on a short term preventative placement as they are at risk of exclusion.

The Bridge Short Stay School was graded ‘Good’ after a Section 5 Ofsted inspection in June 2019. The staff team are very supportive of each other and we are working actively with staff at other similar provisions in Staffordshire to ensure that the most vulnerable young people in our society get the very best education.

Pupils at Little Bridge follow a modified curriculum with the emphasis on the six principles of nurture. All pupils have a personalised learning plan which is delivered through individual and small group teaching as well as through social and emotional development interventions. We follow a trauma-aware approach to teaching our pupils with the emphasis on relational repair and developing trust and engagement. The successful candidate would need to be familiar with the primary curriculum from EYFS to Year 6 and be confident in engaging methods of developing literacy and numeracy skills in reluctant learners.

This is an exciting opportunity to further develop your experience and join the School at a key point in our journey. Experience in mainstream/alternative provision primary education is essential, as is the willingness to be flexible and work as part of a team.

For an informal discussion please contact Karen Wicks, Head of School (Little Bridge) on 01889 370024 or email

Applications and a covering letter to be sent to Mrs Lynnette Abell, School Business Manager at

Closing date:  Friday 24th September, 2021

Interviews will be held via TEAMS w/c Monday 4th October, 2021
