Longhill High School is recruiting TAs to join our supportive and enthusiastic team. If you are dedicated to helping students develop their full potential; calm, patient and flexible; capable of creative thinking and excited by the prospect of a challenge, we’d love to hear from you!
Our Learning Support team and our Special Facility were recognised as particular strengths of the school at our most recent OFSTED. We have a larger than average population of SEND (Special Educational Need and Disability) students yet OFSTED said:-
“Pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities make strong progress because they receive effective support for their learning. Pupils who are supported by the on-site support centre for pupils who have dyslexia make good progress. Pupils who attend alternative provision achieve well”.
“Additional funding for pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is used well to support their learning and progress. A skilled team of teaching assistants is part of the provision carefully tailored to meet the needs of these pupils. Teachers receive good support and guidance to support pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities with their difficulties in learning.”
Applications from experienced TAs, as well as those new to the role, are welcomed. This role is also ideal preparation for future Teacher Training and other careers working with young people. We promise you a rewarding experience for you to grow and learn new skills, alongside an understanding team.
The post will involve supporting students in class, across a range of subjects and ages. You’ll work with a variety of needs including:- SpLD, ASC, HI, SEMH and Physical needs as well as general learning difficulties. Full training will be given.
