We are looking to appoint a Full Time ATA (SEN) to support learning in Science and our Maths intervention programme.  The position will mainly work within the KS3 and 4 Science curriculum, so an interest or qualification in Science would be an advantage. The position will also include providing '1 to 1' support for learners needing additional Maths support.

You will require good organisation and strong communication skills.   

The successful candidate will be able to:

  • motivate, engage and inspire learners, so they participate fully in their own learning;
  • share subject knowledge with all learners, which enables them to make good progress;
  • use their initative to ensure that learners are safe, happy and well motivated;
  • demonstrate the ability to be a reflective practioner, underpinned by a commitment to getting the best from all learners.

The successful candidates will join a positive and supportive staff team and will share our commitment to provide a first class education in a safe, structured and nurturing establishment. The school provides a well resourced environment with each class having a dedicated teaching assistant.  A small class size of between 8 to 9 boys ensures that extra support continues the school's commitment to raising levels of achievement for all learners.

We are able to offer a degree of flexibity in relation to days and hours worked for the right candidate. We offer a high level of support and coaching, high quality CPD, a hard working team of staff and encouraging leadership.  We invite applications also from GTAs, as we are able to offer access to the relevant courses to enable you to attain ATA status.
