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 1370 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.

Applicants must have at least a Grade C in GCSE Maths and English and enjoy the challenge of working as part of a big team.  The successful applicant will work closely with the SENDCO and SEND department as a whole.  We look forward to receiving applications from motivated and organised individuals who can contribute significantly across the school.

Application forms (Associate Staff) should be completed and submitted online together with a supporting letter explaining why you are suitable for this position.

Full child protection procedures are followed in the appointment of staff to our school, and an enhanced DBS check will be required.
