Are you an engaging and exciting teaching assistant?
Do you want to make a difference for all the children that you work with?
Can you instil a sense of pride in pupils for their work?The schools is a special educational needs school for young people aged 9 -19 years. All our students have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). Many students have additional needs such as mild to moderate Autistic Spectrum Disorders, language impairment or emotional issues; a few have sensory or medical needs.
The majority of students come from mainstream Primary Schools where they have been supported 1:1 by an adult, mostly on a full-time basis. The adult to student ratio at St Philip’s makes this unnecessary as class sizes are between 8-10 students.
In Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9) students are organised into ‘mixed ability/need’ tutor groups for registration times, tutorials and most of their subject lessons. English and maths are taught in ability sets.
The school provides a broad range of subject option choices at Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11), in addition to the statutory core curriculum; all courses result in a recognised accreditation.
An array of enrichment opportunities is provided within and beyond the school day; for example, residential trips in Years 8, 10 and Post-16 and after school activity clubs.
Independence, key to the underlying ethos of the school, is supported and developed through a life skills programme, travel training and work experience.
The Post-16 provision caters for those young people who have not yet gained sufficient independence or confidence to transfer to a further education (FE) college environment at the end of Year 11. Their curriculum is designed to develop functional life skills rather than the attainment of higher level qualifications.
This is a full-time, temp – perm role and you will working 8:30am – 4:30pm to ensure that all pupils have the correct supervision and support whilst on school campus.
