To inspire each of our young people to flourish as an individual, to be curious, to be resilient and to love learning. We aspire for them to grow into articulate, independent future citizens and to become the leaders of tomorrow.

A rare opportunity has arisen to join the small, effective SEND team within our school. We have a vacancy for a Learning Support Assistant with good knowledge and understanding of how to support students with high functioning autism. The post will involve working closely with the SENCo and contributing fully to the work of the team.

You must have a genuine liking for young people and must be able to establish good relationships with the young people in your care. You will be working specifically as key worker for a 6th form student in their final year of A’ Level study in addition to their transition to university. You will also be working with a small number of high needs students lower down the school who can find the mainstream environment challenging. Patience, understanding and good communication skills are essential. You will be confident in speaking with students, staff, parents and external agencies and be fully committed to your future professional development in autistic spectrum conditions.

This is a perfect opportunity to work within an extremely successful school and make a significant contribution to supporting young people to achieve their dreams and aspirations. Crossley Heath is a very popular school which achieves excellent outcomes for our young people. We are proud of the dedicated support we provide to young people with AEN/SEN and hope you will be able to help us develop our expertise even further.
