We are seeking a Physical Education LSA to contribute to high quality teaching and learning at The Endeavour Co-operative Academy, supporting our PE teacher in PE lessons. This opportunity has arisen as our current PE LSA is relocating abroad.
The Endeavour is in an exciting phase of development at present, as we continue to expand & are in the process of a whole site rebuild in partnership with DfE Rebuilding Schools Project. As well as the PE teacher, we will also have a trainee teacher in PE next year.
LSAs work in partnership with teachers to support pupils with moderate learning difficulties and complex needs and to support their learning in line with the codes of practice and school policies and procedures. Duties include swimming, for which lifeguard qualifications will be arranged by school. The PE LSA runs breaktime & lunchtime clubs for pupils daily. The role will also include support in classroom lessons, when PE is not on the timetable.
All applicants are strongly advised to read the job description and person specification for the post prior to submitting their application.
Please note this is a permanent role, term time only and salary is pro-rata and will include outer fringe allowance. Full-time annual salary (including fringe allowance) is £20,680 - £21,081.
The position is for 5 days (33 hours and 45 mins) per week term time only, but we welcome applications from applicants who can offer 3 or 4 days, as we will consider job share positions.
£16,101 to £16,413 actual starting salary (including fringe allowance - based on 44.5 paid weeks).
