We seek applications from those of the Catholic faith, all faiths and of no faith but who are supportive of our Christian values and ethos.
St Mary’s Catholic School is seeking to appoint additional part-time Learning Support Assistant. We are seeking a positive, proactive person to join the Learning Support Team in a high performing school. This role will include support of additional students with a variety of additional and special needs throughout the school.
This individual will be working with individual students, supporting groups of students or whole classes and other related tasks. The candidate should be self-motivated and enjoy working independently as part of a small busy team.
Members of the Learning Support team work in all curriculum areas, so the successful applicant must be able to work unsupervised, be flexible, and able to work well as part of the wider school. They must also be able to communicate effectively with all levels of staff and pupils in a busy school environment. The ideal candidate will have experience of working as a Learning Support Assistant within a school environment, however this is not essential.
Working at St. Mary’s is an extraordinary opportunity. Our Surveys this year showed that 96% of staff enjoy their work at St Marys, 97% agree that leaders do all they can to ensure a motivated and respected staff, 100% of students enjoy their learning and believe that behaviour around the school is good, and 97% of parents would recommend St. Mary’s to other parents. We are passionately committed to developing staff and managing workload to ensure that colleagues enjoy their work and recognise St. Mary’s as an almost-uniquely positive place to work and enjoy their careers.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. A DBS disclosure is required for all successful applicants. St Mary’s is committed to the equality of opportunity for all applicants, and we reserve the right to interview on a rolling basis, therefore an early application is advisable.
Closing date: 31st August 2021 10am, although we reserve the right to interview applicants as they apply, so early applications are advised.
