Further information

Wolsingham School, situated in Weardale is just a short drive west of Durham and under an hour south of Newcastle. Attracting students from a wide variety of catchment areas, the school boasts a rich extracurricular life, character and citizenship, and exceptional pastoral care. We are committed to helping every child fulfil their true potential.

We are looking to appoint a highly motivated, student centred Teaching Assistant who will contribute to raising the standards of achievement for one or more specified pupils with special educational needs or disabilities and to support them in their lessons, under the direction and supervision of classroom teachers, the SENCO and/or senior colleagues.

The contract, is directly linked to the funding of one or more students with an EHCP and cognitive difficulties, whom you would support through years 10 and 11. As is common for such positions, the contract is subject to annual funding review and, e.g., if the student to whom you are assigned moves placement prior to this date, the contract will come to an end earlier.

The successful applicant will work both 1 to 1 and take the lead on very small group work with young people, supporting them in a classroom setting and individually as necessary. In common with other Teaching Assistants, you may also be asked to work with other students in our purpose-built Learning Support room, the Bishop’s Suite, or in a wider classroom setting. TA’s are fully part of our school’s life and are welcome to get involved in supporting wider extra-curricular activities; they also play a part on the First Aid rota and assist with other tasks.

The school is set in extensive grounds, having benefited from a new building in April 2016. The Learning Support Team, the wider staff body and our Leadership Team are extremely supportive and we provide extensive professional development opportunities.

Application: To arrange a visit or to ask any other questions, please contact the school on 01388 527302 or email info@wolsinghamschool.net

Applications may be downloaded from our website, which includes a video and virtual tour of our school as well as other helpful information.
