Do you want to work with a successful and forward thinking school and Trust who offer a variety of benefits to staff and whose core belief is that all children, regardless of need, are entitled to an excellent education? This is an exciting opportunity for someone who would enjoy working predominantly within Food Preparation & Nutrition and some general TA work. We would welcome applications from candidates who enjoy working with young people, and would also welcome applications from primary teaching assistants. You will have the opportunity to lead small groups of students cooking for some of the week.

The SEND team are a dynamic and growing department who are passionate about the education of young people with additional needs.  We would welcome applications from people who enjoy working with young people, and who want to develop their areas of interest in a number of different subjects.  We would also welcome applications from primary teaching assistants; who wish to develop their skills in a secondary setting, or graduates who may wish to train to teach in the future. 

As a member of our team, you will be passionate about contributing your skills to ensure all our young people receive the best possible education.
