We are seeking a teaching assistant to join a successful and established Inclusion Faculty.  The postholder will work with individuals and small groups who have specific educational needs.  Experience with secondary pupils preferred but not essential as training will be provided. 

Level 2 qualification in English and Maths or equivalent is essential. 
We have very high expectations of all staff and for the right person this is a superb opportunity to develop skills through bespoke CPD provision and opportunities. You will be working in a modern, well-resourced, supportive environment, which has excellent facilities.
There are currently 915 students at the school.  The school ethos is central to our mission of “Excellence for All”.
Our latest Ofsted inspection (December 2018) judged three criteria as ‘Good’ – effectiveness of leadership and management, quality of teaching, learning and assessment and personal development, behaviour and welfare.   Inspectors highlighted the vastly improved leadership and high ambitions, which has helped to improve the quality of teaching and pupils’ behaviour.
Kirkby High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and adheres to the Equality Act 2010. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment; any offer of employment will be subject to receipt of an enhanced DBS disclosure.  To comply with the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 all prospective employees will be required to supply evidence of eligibility to work in the UK.
