Fixed term position starting 6th September 2021 to 20th July 2022
St Michael’s Church of England High School is a school with an extremely bright future. Number on roll and results over the last five years have seen dramatic rises.
Graded ‘Good’ by Ofsted, we are an 11-18 mixed Comprehensive School of around 691 students situated in a delightful position on the northern edge of Crosby.
For September 2021, we are seeking to appoint a creative, committed enthusiastic individual who is keen to make a difference in the lives of young people. You will provide in-class support to designated students across the whole curriculum. There will also be an element of administration work attached to the post in relation to SEN paperwork. Applicants should be flexible, adaptable and have a good sense of humour and be able to empathise with the students they will be working with. Good numeracy and literacy skills are essential requirements for this post.
Working with students within the educational setting you will be given the opportunity to work with a range of outside agencies including physiotherapists and health professionals. Training will be provided in house and previous experience is not essential.
An ability to engage, inspire and motivate young people is more important than formal qualifications.
A degree of flexibility will be required for training.
St Michael’s Church of England High School is a caring Christian community. The successful candidate must demonstrate the ability to support this ethos.
The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expects all staff to share this commitment: http://www.stmichaelshigh.com/images/2021/Policy_changes_feb_2021/Whole_School_Child_Protection_Policy_v6.doc.pdf
