Closing date: 12/01/2018
Salary: £ 20661-24174 (term-time only)

Job description:

Windmill L.E.A.D. Academy has a unique opportunity to appoint a Teaching Assistant to support the wonderful children in our school.  We would like applications from motivated, excellent practitioners who feel they could help the school build upon its strengths and work towards raising standards of achievement. This position is to start as soon as a suitable candidate is available. 

Windmill L.E.A.D. Academy is a vibrant inner city school that was graded ‘Good’ in its last Ofsted inspection in January 2015. There have been recent senior leadership changes and the school is embarking on a new era with great positivity and determination to move the school forward. Windmill is a vibrant inner city school with a dedicated team who are working tirelessly to improve the outcomes of children.  

The school is undergoing a huge refurbishment plan which will see a complete remodelling of the front of the school and a superb modern interior with significantly upgraded classrooms and enhanced teaching facilities. The school benefits immensely from being a member of a very forward looking and inclusive Trust where children can take part in STEM days, Bushcraft experiences and performing arts days which bring schools across the Trust together.

This post would suit a teaching assistant with experience of teaching in the inner city and who has high expectations, determination and a passion for making a difference to the life choices for inner city children.  We are developing a team of Level 3 Teaching Assistants across the school to lead different initiatives. This post would be initially based in a KS1 class and would involve PPA cover. You will be supported by a dedicated and experienced Leadership Team who put mentoring and coaching at the heart of their practice.

We are therefore looking for someone who:

  • is keen to work with children and support them in their learning;
  • is positive in their approach to their work and all members of the school community;
  • has the skills to work as part of the school team;
  • is dedicated to supporting every child to achieve their very best;
  • wants to develop their own skills.

In return, the successful candidate will:

  • be joining a strong and dynamic team of professionals;
  • work in a school with high aspirations for all of its pupils and staff;
  • have access to the L.E.A.D. Urban Teaching School Alliance’s professional development programme;
  • be provided with excellent career opportunities.

Windmill is part of L.E.A.D. Academy Trust which is a registered charity created in 2011.  The Trust aims, through outstanding leadership, to provide the highest quality education to enable every pupil to realise their full potential.  Further information about the Trust can be found here http://www.leadacademytrust.co.uk/about-us

This is a superb opportunity to develop and progress professionally and to impact upon children’s learning.

The L.E.A.D. Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.

If you are interested in the post, would like a visit or further information, please contact the school – your interest will be warmly welcomed. A visit to experience the friendly and happy environment is highly recommended!

Closing date for applications is noon 12.01.2018.
