Due to expansion and subsequent growth in pupil numbers, we have 4 permanent and 3 fixed term vacancies for Learning Support Assistants who have a passion for working with pupils with special educational needs.  The fixed term vacancies are for up to one year. 

Our pupils are aged 2 – 19 years with learning, communication and complex health needs ranging from severe to profound and multiple. The successful applicants will be required to work across the breadth of our school.

Our 30 core hours of work are 8:45am to 3:15pm Monday to Friday with half an hour lunch break.  As we are a school, you will be required to take all annual leave during school holidays. Integral to your own professional development and as part of your core working weeks you will be required to attend some after school meetings and essential twilight training. 

The salary range is Grade B or C depending on your qualifications and experience.  Hourly rate range is therefore £9.36 to £10.06 and the actual annual salary range £12,850. to £13,804. for 30 hours per week term time only.
