32.5 hpw, 38 weeks per year. Subject to probationary period.

Required from March 2019.

We are proud to have a strong, caring and hard-working learning support team which makes significant contributions to students' engagement and progress in school. We are looking for a diligent, honest and hard-working colleague who will be committed to supporting our students to become the very best people that they can be.

This will be a challenging but extremely rewarding position which often involves working closely with some of our most vulnerable and challenging students. Duties include working in partnership with teachers to foster effective learning for all pupils in order to access the full curriculum and to provide support to those students that are particularly weak in literacy, numeracy and basic organisation skills. In addition, there will be opportunities to provide 1:1 and small group intervention.

If you have the patience and the stamina needed to make a difference to our students, then we would love you to apply.

Experience of working with secondary age students is desirable.

Stowmarket High School is situated in picturesque mid Suffolk with excellent commuter links to Cambridge, Ipswich and Norwich. We are an inclusive 11 - 18 academy and part of Waveney Valley Academies Trust. We are currently in the throes of having a new school built on our current site and plan to move in to our new state of the art school in 2020.

Other staff benefits include:

* Opportunity to work with a dedicated and committed team of professionals
* Child care voucher scheme
* Commitment to staff well-being and work life balance
* Ongoing Professional Development opportunities within the trust
* LGPS Pension Scheme.

Completed applications should be emailed to Michele Miall, Headteacher's PA at: m.miall@stowhigh.com by the closing date. Only applications submitted on the school's application form will be considered.

Interview date: w/c 4 March 2019.

Stowmarket High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to have an Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service.
