The Trustees are seeking to appoint an Enhanced Teaching Assistant for Sedgefield Community College with effect from September 2021.

Would you like to progress your career in a school judged by OFSTED as ‘outstanding’ and named as the North East State Secondary School of the Decade by the Sunday Times, a school where both student achievement and attitudes to learning are amongst the best in the entire North East and Cumbria region? Would you like to develop your practice in a fantastic, recently built school, with its own dedicated Teaching and Learning centre for the sole purpose of promoting excellence in teaching? Would you also like to work in a school that has been designated as one of the twenty-two lead schools in the country in the DfE Behaviour Hubs programme? If the answer to each of these questions is ‘yes’ then Sedgefield Community College could be right for you.

The role of Enhanced Teaching Assistant involves providing effective support to identified individuals and groups of SEN students under the guidance of our SEND Coordinator. This includes working alongside teachers and other professionals helping ensure work programmes are accessible to individuals and that tasks are being completed as intended. In addition, the role requires post holders to take a key role in the delivery of literacy and numeracy developments programmes.

This post may be particularly attractive to those who would like to make a career in teaching and would like to first gain experience in a highly supportive school setting.

Laidlaw Schools Trust is a growing multi academy trust in the North East of England, serving children and families in Sedgefield, the west of Newcastle and in Pennywell, Sunderland. We pride ourselves in being a progressive, inclusive trust that supports every child to develop their talents whatever they may be and to reach their academic potential. It is important that as a learning organisation we adapt and change to the needs of our pupils. We take care to value and develop all colleagues to make sure they can do their very best for children across the Trust’s schools. Our Academies also enjoy strong support from an experienced LST central team, based in Newcastle upon Tyne.
