Continued investment and development of our SEND provision means that we have a number of posts to fill and would welcome applications from candidates looking to join a forward-thinking and innovative team for their next career move.

The successful candidates will work flexibly within the Student Support Department to meet a range of student needs and to assist the SENCo, SEND Manager and teaching staff in the support and integration of students with special educational needs and disabilities. This is a highly rewarding and valued role within our school community that sits at the heart of our provision for pastoral and academic care.

Applicants must have a minimum of five GCSE (or equivalent) passes at Grade C or above including English and Mathematics and have the flexibility to contribute to in-class support, small group work and one to one support of students with SEND. Equally as important, however, are the ‘softer’ skills needed to engage, inspire and encourage our young people to achieve their very best.

Applications are invited from individuals who are currently either working as Learning Support Mentors/Teaching Assistants or exceptional candidates seeking the next step in their career. Applications are particularly welcomed from those considering a career in teaching and who are seeking to gain hands-on experience in an exceptional learning environment or who are currently studying for a career in teaching but require flexible, part-time hours to fit in around their studies.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome flexible working requests and will consider alternative arrangements of working hours other than those stated above. Early applications, received before the deadline, will be treated on an individual basis and may result in an earlier call for interview.

In return, the successful candidates can expect:

  • Outstanding professional support;
  • Comprehensive training opportunities;
  • A vibrant and dynamic student body that deserves the very best in teaching and support;
  • Free on-site parking;
  • Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme;
  • Employee Assistance Programme.

For an open conversation about the role and/or to arrange a visit prior to application, please contact the Head’s PA, Mrs Gormley on 01225 832873 or email hr@st-gregorys.org.uk to arrange a suitable time.
