Job/Person Summary

Teaching Assistants Required

Starting in September 2017

Are you committed and passionate about making a difference to the life chances of our students?  Are you looking for an interesting, varied and challenging opportunity?

We are seeking an enthusiastic teaching assistant to join our team.  The role will include a variety of activities with good opportunities for progression and development.  You will work closely with teaching staff to support groups of students in school years 6 to 11.  You are likely to work very closely with one group and their teacher, but will also work with a wide range other pupils of different ages.  Depending on your interest, knowledge and skills, you may also work with our SEN intervention team.

Northfield is a Special School for pupils with specific difficulties; pupils are placed here because they have Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) difficulties that prevent them from making good progress in a mainstream setting.  In general, the behaviour of our pupils is excellent and is always well managed by our staff, but individual pupils can be challenging at times and you will need to be robust and resilient when this occurs; ensuring that you uphold the policies of the school with the support of other staff.  

We will welcome your application if you are:
  • An experienced teaching assistant looking for a career change into SEMH and/or Special Needs
  • Seeking a long-term position within a highly supportive special school
  • Interested in a gap-year position and looking to gain experience within a school setting
  • Are a prospective teacher, considering an assessment only route to QTS
Visits to the school are welcomed and encouraged.  This is a small and highly specialist school with loyal and dedicated staff.  We are proud of our school, and of the education and opportunities that we provide for our pupils.  You will play a critical part of a strong teaching community that will value your contribution to the school. 

Application Procedure

Northfield School and the Local Authority are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment.

All successful candidates will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service checks along with other relevant employment checks prior to commencement of this post.

Completed application forms (CLICK HERE) should be emailed to jobs@northfieldschool.co.uk by noon on Monday 05 Jun 2017 (Noon).
