Are you an inspiring LSA, capable of getting the very best from a child?

Are you patient and resilient, with a 'firm but fair' approach?

Then we need you!


We are seeking a very special individual to work on a 1 to 1 basis with a child or children in our school. This unique person would benefit from a current understanding of the Thrive approach, or at least be willing to train at our school in this area.


An ability to help a child or children work towards SMART targets that are both achievable and realistic would be an advantage, alongside the understanding that 'an inch' of progress for one child is 'a mile' to another.


A full understanding of child protection procedures would also be of benefit to the applicant, but above all we are looking for a professional who is kind, caring and can encourage children no matter what the barriers.


If you consider yourself a person who can truly make a difference to the life of a child, then we consider you a superhuman! Use your powers to complete the attached form!


The post is required from preferably January 2019.  The contract is for 25-30 hours per week, term time only, with the hours and days being negotiable. Salary will reflect this. This is a temporary contract lasting until July 2020.
