Pupil Premium Champion and Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) 

  • POSTED

Girl reading in the library

We have an unrelenting commitment to be exceptional in all that we do 

We are seeking to appoint a highly organized and dedicated individual to join our Special Educational Needs team in support teaching and learning for students with SEN and to develop the provision of Pupil Premium to raise academic success and aspirations. Responsibilities will include supporting the SENDCo in the planning, delivery and evaluation of personalised interventions, leading the monitoring of disadvantaged students’ academic attainment and progress, engaging with and supporting parents and carers and evaluating the impact of intervention strategies.  Candidates must have experience of working with children with special educational needs, excellent organisational and interpersonal skills and a passion for supporting young people to develop intellectually and personally. A Level 4 HLTA or equivalent qualification and experience of leading small group intervention sessions would be an advantage but is not essential. The role is 35 hours per week during term-time. 

Our students are a delight to work with: they are articulate, hardworking, well-motivated and display our 7 core values in the way that they treat each other. We pride ourselves on our positive staff/student relationships.  Sexey’s School has a strong team of staff who are caring, supportive and working with a ‘determination to be exceptional in all that we do’. 

In return, we offer excellent CPD opportunities, a supportive staff body and the opportunity to work in a high performing State Boarding School.
