THE PROPELLER ACADEMY TRUST
OXON OX12 9ET
Headteacher: Stephanie Coneboy
Teaching Assistant required to join a team of hard working friendly people within this Special School supporting pupils with learning difficulties. The successful Teaching Assistant will be supported by a teacher and experienced Teaching Assistants.
Hours to be worked are 30 hours/week term time only to start as soon as possible.
Experience of working with children is essential. Experience of working with SEN children, though not essential, would be an advantage. Fitzwaryn is a small (but growing!) very successful special school and we will offer you excellent opportunities for professional and personal development. We received our third Outstanding OFSTED in October 2014.
As of 1st February 2013 Fitzwaryn School became part of The Propeller Academy Trust with Kingfisher Special School and Abingdon and Witney College. Whilst the post is to work within Fitzwaryn School, there may be a requirement to work across the trust after consultation.
We are looking for someone with common sense, a willingness to learn and a sense of humour. The nature of the work is physically as well as mentally demanding but extremely rewarding.
We positively encourage applications from all sections of the community, including black and minority ethnic communities who may be under-represented in some areas of our workforce.
The schools within The Propeller Academy Trust are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
