The Trust currently consists of Rushcliffe School, an outstanding school in West Bridgford and The Farnborough Academy, Clifton and the Arnold Hill Academy, Arnold. However, the trust will, subject to due diligence, merge with the Spencer Academies Trust from 1st September in order to give our staff the opportunity to broaden their range of skills and experience and bring benefits to our pupils and the whole education system.
In our Group we work together, share staff, join up expertise, build on each other’s strengths, pool resources and combine facilities, so that everybody, staff and pupils, gets the chance to shine and achieve their best.
We are developing our support structure to enhanced capacity within the teaching and learning support teams.
We are currently seeking to appoint a Learning Support Assistants at Rushcliffe School.
The Learning Support Assistants are members of a multi-disciplinary team, under the leadership and supervision of the SENCO. In co-operation with the SENCO and Assistant SENCO, the Learning Support Assistant will provide support to pupils with SEND. This will involve individualised interventions and whole class work in order to support pupils with their academic and social development. Ideally we would like to appoint one generic Learning Support Assistant and one with a Literacy focus.
Rushcliffe is a popular and successful school in a pleasant, suburban area of Nottingham. It has a strong tradition of pastoral care, academic success and extra-curricular enrichment. We are committed to providing high quality training and development opportunities for all staff.
