Further information

Student achievement and well-being is at the heart of everything we do at Whickham School. We combine outstanding teaching with a rewarding, enriching curriculum which broadens students’ horizons and encourages them to believe in their abilities.

Working with our AEN (Additional Educational Needs) pupils, your role is to deliver in-class support as well as a range of bespoke interventions. Emphasis will be placed on working with individual students and small groups to identify barriers to learning and to address these so that pupils make strong progress.

You'll be supporting with:
Providing pupils with the level and type of support they need, whilst at the same time encouraging the pupils towards independence.
Promoting positive behaviour in line with school policies by the use of praise and encouragement.
Ensuring there is high-quality provision of extra-curricular support and interventions for AEN pupils.
Taking part in training activities offered by the school to further your knowledge.
This is an excellent opportunity to join our over-subscribed 11 – 18 school with a vibrant, forward thinking philosophy and a positive, friendly atmosphere.

In return, we can offer:
• A school that will allow you to be inspirational, creative and play an active role in our journey to become outstanding
• Professional development programmes, with a commitment to support your career ambitions
• An academy which welcomes new ideas with energy and enthusiasm

At Whickham School we understand that schools are about people and that staff who are happy and enjoy their work are more productive. Therefore, we are committed to ensuring we provide outstanding CPD and an environment that enables exceptional staff well-being. We will support you in your personal and professional development, enabling you to contribute fully to the creative and dedicated teams of dynamic and ambitious staff you will be joining.
Whickham School is a large and successful school in Gateshead with over 1500 students including approximately 250 in the sixth form, which is one of the most successful in the region with over 62% of grades being A*-B grade in the 2018 exams.
This role is 32.5 hours per week but we may ask you to support pupils by doing some additional hours from time to time.

If successful you will have to apply for an Enhanced Disclosure. Closing date midnight 17th July 2019.
