Job Details

The Governors of Langley Primary wish to appoint a Band D Learning Support Practitioner to work 5 days a week (27.5hrs) from September 2024.

Initially the post will be in KS1.  You will need to be flexible as to which part of the school you work in over time and should feel at home working from EYFS and Y6. Staff are regularly moved within school and you should be willing to work throughout the school. 

We can offer a great school to work in that has wonderful polite children, no suspensions of any sort for the past 10 years and a team of staff that will help you develop your skills and abilities. We recently had an OfSTED Inspection and they won’t be back for a while!

You will need to be able to work flexibly, take responsibility for the teaching and learning of small groups and be able to think on your feet to meet the needs of the children you work with. Where you show that you can achieve these expectations you will be given greater independence in working with the children. We are an inclusive school and expect staff to adapt how they work to the pupils’ needs rather than expecting the children simply to conform. 

Passion, skill and enthusiasm are more important than experience. Where these are evident we can provide support and training for a suitable applicant. 

Over the past years where staff have a degree and shown sufficient promise we have been able to take several staff through the Schools Direct or Apprenticeship route into becoming a qualified teacher. 

If this is the sort of job for you why not apply and come and join us? You are very welcome to visit. If you have any queries please email them to tony.james@langleyprimary.com or call us on 0121 5521744. You can also send completed application forms to this email address.

Pre-employment checks will be carried out in line with KCSIE

Hours: 

27.5 hours per week, plus 5 training days, permanent
