At The Attic, we support young people who have been unable to succeed in mainstream education. Here they are given a second chance, and with support and challenge, they are able to achieve their potential.

We are now seeking to appoint a Learning Support Assistant to join our well-established team at Attic@The Landing.

We are thrilled to have opened a new small group provision in September 2018 for students in KS2 with a diagnosis of Moderate Learning Difficulties who may also have Social Emotional Health Needs. The role will be key in ensuring our students receive the structure and support they require in order to achieve their best.

Our current team of staff are highly committed to supporting our young people to ensure they get as much as they can out of their education at The Attic. If you feel you could contribute to the school and join us on our journey, we would welcome an application from you.

Do you have:

  • a commitment to ensuring that all children / young people achieve their potential
  • the ability to promote an inclusive provision
  • the ability to support the raising of standards across the provision
  • the ability to be a supportive and innovative member of the wider Attic team
  • the ability to develop partnerships that enhance the experience for all.

Roll: 4 sites: 50 PRU places (2 sites), 10 ASD PRU places, 8 ML/SEMH PRU places, 12 residential - Social Emotional Mental Health places. Ages: 7 - 18.
