Casual Contract

32.5 hours per week (term time plus 5 days), permanent
Band 3: £19,312 – 19,698 (pro rata)

Our team is growing! As a result of learning needs identified within student cohorts next year, we are recruiting two additional Learning Support Partners (LSPs) to join the existing friendly and supportive SEN team.

Commencing in September, the main duties include working under the direction of the teacher to support individual, or small groups of children in reaching their specific educational or behavioural targets.

Often referred to as Teaching Assistant or Learning Support Assistant, at JCSC we recognise the vital and valued work undertaken and have named the role ‘Learning Support Partner’, which we believe more accurately reflects the direct impact your work will have on our students, their learning and their futures.

The successful candidates will be able to work independently with individuals, small groups or within a whole class as required; have the ability to use initiative and apply effective problem-solving skills; be able to work as a member of a team; and sensitively understand the needs of children and their families.

Typical work includes:
• Support for teaching and learning
• Delivery of intervention programmes to small groups
• Preparation of the learning environment
• Maintaining pupil records
• Upholding the rules of the school/classroom

Our Learning Support Partners typically work 32.5 hours equally spread evenly over 5 days with some after school time on Wednesdays to accommodate continual professional learning time. However, we will also consider applications from candidates who wish to job
share or work reduced hours

Further details about the school and vacancy can be obtained from or by emailing, Assistant Headteacher – Teaching & Learning and SENCO.

Interested in applying? Completed application forms should be submitted by email to Linda Gordon, Business
Support Officer, at

The closing date for applications is noon on Friday 17 June. Interviews will take place week commencing Monday 20 June.

individual students.
