Becket Keys' students are passionate about their school and staff will tell you that this is an exciting and exceptional place to work - with an 'Outstanding' Ofsted judgement awarded in our first (2014) inspection. The school offers a high-quality education in a caring, Christian environment in which each student is known, valued and encouraged to achieve his/her individual potential. We are committed to outstanding academic performance and to fostering a love of learning in our students.

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and talented Learning Support Assistant (LSA). The LSA's role will be to primarily provide classroom hover support to Year 9 students across the curriculum. This is an exciting opportunity to develop further your skills in working with children with ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder), ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and/ or Dyslexia. You will be expected to develop and prepare differentiated learning materials for the students under the direction of the class teachers and SENCo, and to carry out general learning support responsibilities. You will also plan and deliver small group interventions under the direction of the SENCo.

Experience of supporting students with Dyscalculia and/ or Dyslexia would be advantageous, but this is not essential as training will be provided.

This is an exciting opportunity to develop your skills in working with children with SEND.

The successful candidate will be joining an exceptional, student focused team and will:

· Have GCSE or equivalent English, Mathematics and Science Grade C/ Level 4 or above.

· Have a love of learning and be committed to their own professional development.

· Be hard working and a great team player, with good interpersonal skills.

· Be articulate and committed to achieving high academic standards for all children, including those with SEND.

· Be motivated, organised and able to work on your own initiative when necessary.

· Be kind, caring and have a patient personality.

· Be flexible and keen to take on additional responsibilities as they arise.

· Be confident in their ability to support students across Key Stages 3 and 4.

· Be able to assess students' responses to learning tasks and, where appropriate, modify methods to meet individual needs.

· Preferably, hold relevant qualifications at a level equivalent to at least NVQ Level 3 (e.g., a Foundation Degree in Education, NVQ in Supporting Teaching and Learning, City and Guilds Advanced Certificate in Learning support, ELKLAN).

· Preferably, be knowledgeable of effective strategies to include and meet the needs of students with Dyscalculia, Dyslexia, ASD, ADHD and/ or SLCN difficulties.

The appointee will be committed to our high expectations and core values - we welcome applications from colleagues irrespective of their faith or belief. However, we ask for applicants to appreciate and respect the beliefs of others and have strong moral principles.

Staff will be provided with a comprehensive induction programme and laptop, and childcare is accessible at a neighbouring provision with discounted rates for staff members.

Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will need a full DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check, which can be applied for once a job offer is made.

The school is committed to safe recruitment and the post will be subject to an enhanced CRB check.

Closing date: Friday 12th August.

Interview Date: TBC
