Year Group Lead Achievement Support Assistant (Teaching Assistant)

Eckington School is a vibrant and rapidly improving 11-18 secondary school with 1,240 students on roll. It is set in a wonderful 42-acre site of rolling North East Derbyshire countryside, situated close to the centre of Sheffield and the Peak District National Park.

The Governors are seeking to appoint an experienced Achievement Support Assistant (Teaching Assistant) to start as soon as possible to work with groups of students at both KS3 and KS4, as well as with students who have specific special educational needs.  We are looking for outstanding individuals who have the personal skills and drive to help students overcome their barriers to learning whether these are specific learning difficulties, emotional and social difficulties or medical disabilities.  As a Year group lead, you would maintain an overview of provision for student in your year group, be a primary contact for parents and contribute to the Assess, Plan, Do and Review cycle for each child with SEN in your year group. We would particularly welcome applications with strong primary Literacy and Numeracy experience to support our very low ability students. You would join a growing and rapidly improving Achievement Support Team, and be supported to further your career through training and development opportunities.

This role is ideally suited to an experienced TA looking to progress their career to the next stage and take on a new challenge.

Closing date for applications is 9.00am, 29th June 2021.
