A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join the dynamic staff team at West Park School.

West Park is an 11 – 16 school based in Spondon with 1350 pupils currently on roll. The school prides itself on exceptional pupil achievement, dynamic teaching and learning and excellent behaviour and engagement. We have a committed and talented staff team who work cohesively to get the best for all of our pupils. The pupils themselves are focussed, polite, positive and determined to take full advantage of the range of opportunities provided to them.

The successful applicant will work across various departments, interacting with teaching staff and supporting a range of pupils to allow them to fully access the curriculum and to fulfil their potential. There will also be a requirement to lead small groups or 1 to 1 sessions and to prepare creative resources. The role also requires significant time to be given to supporting pupils with internal and external examinations and assessments.

The successful applicant will work closely with the SENCO and SEND department as a whole. We look forward to receiving application from motivated and organised individuals who can contribute significantly across the school.
