Would you like a change of career? 


We are seeking to appoint a number of effective and enthusiastic Learning Support Assistants to join our Learning Support Team in September, at this highly successful and heavily over-subscribed academy which is one of the highest performing 11-18 school in Staffordshire.


We gained ‘Good’ in our 2018 Ofsted inspection and as part of the Local Authority’s quality assurance strategy, we have gained Category 1 status, the highest category of school performance, for three years running. Furthermore, on the back of our continued improvement and ongoing success, we have recently become founding members of Primitas Learning Partnership, a Multi-Academy Trust which is determined to make a positive impact in the local community.


Our Learning Support Team is rapidly expanding due to the strong reputation of our SEN Department, which is leading to increased numbers of students with additional needs joining the Academy.


This post will involve the provision of high quality learning support for children and young people across the Academy.  The successful candidate will bring relevant knowledge and skills at Level 2 or educated to degree level (please refer to the job profile) from their own education and experience.  They must be versatile, flexible and a good team member who works collaboratively with colleagues.


We welcome applications from adults who can support and engage students with good impact on their academic performance.  Previous experience is not required, as training and support will be offered to the successful candidate.  We offer a positive school culture, opportunities for further professional development and strong support from the Senior Leadership Team. 


In return, we offer an incredibly positive working environment, passionately believing that our human resources are our most important and valuable resources. Therefore, our staff wellbeing strategy is at the heart of our ongoing improvement work, meaning that middle and senior leaders are committed to ensuring that all staff are happy, cared for, listened to and professionally equipped to fulfil their role to the highest possible standard. Furthermore, opportunities for career progression regularly arise, with the Academy having an excellent record of training and developing our staff from within.


CLOSING DATE: 9.00 am, Monday 5th September 2022
