Grade 2 £17,007 – £19,446 (full time)
Term-time only 26 hours per week pro rata
Required as soon as possible
St Thomas Aquinas is a large and thriving 11-18 Catholic comprehensive school where staff and students from all faiths live out the school mission and every member of the community feels valued and engaged. In November 2018 the school was judged to be GOOD by OFSTED.
The School requires an enthusiastic, experienced and hardworking Level 2 Teaching Assistant to join the Learning Support Team as soon as possible. We wish to appoint an enthusiastic Teaching Assistant who will support the teaching and learning of students with a wide range of special educational needs. This post is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious professional to contribute to the school’s continuing success. The candidate will also support within the Literacy Team supporting EAL students.
It is an exciting time to join St Thomas Aquinas School, as we became part of the Lumen Christi Catholic Multi Academy on the 1 April 2015. This links us with five of our Catholic Primary Feeder Schools and brings real opportunities for collaborative teaching and learning.
The Governors are looking for a suitably qualified person to take on the role of Learning Mentor. The successful candidate will work with individual or small groups of EAL/Literacy students to promote their inclusion and to provide support for teaching and personalised learning. It is essential that the person appointed understands the barriers to learning and is able to help students to overcome them. The successful candidate will liaise with a wide range of staff and will monitor students closely to ensure they make good progress.
This is a wonderful opportunity for the right person to work in a curriculum area with a highly committed staff in a large and popular Catholic secondary school.
St Thomas Aquinas is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check is required for all successful applicants.
This post is covered by Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) and therefore the ability to speak fluent and spoken English is an essential requirement for this role”
Closing date Wednesday 12 December 2018 at 9.00 a.m. with interviews taking place on 19 December 2018.
