We are looking for two passionate and talented practitioners to join our dedicated team working within the Learning Support Department as HLTA’s.
The successful candidates will be part of a team of Learning Support Assistants based within our primary academy - King’s Academy Oakwood (KAO) and our all-through academy-King’s Academy Binfield (KAB). You would be predominately based in either the primary or secondary phase but there might be occasional times where you are needed to support in the opposing phase. Start date - 1st September 2020
Our new HLTA’s will plan and lead work for small groups of children, offer 1:1 support, support with SEND paperwork and cover classes as and when needed. Experience of working with students with SEND would be an advantage. The HLTA will share the academy's vision and the belief that all young people can achieve. Other necessary qualities include confidentiality, efficiency and being able to work on your own initiative and under pressure and a willingness to contribute to the wider life of King’s Academy Binfield (KAB) and King’s Academy Oakwood (KAO).
KAB opened in a superb building in September 2018 with 120 Year 7 students. In September 2019 a further 150 Year 7 students, 30 Year R students and 21 Year N students joined the academy. Also in September 2019, KAO, a brand new 1 FE primary school a mile away, opened with Year R and a mixed Year 1/2. KAB and KAO will continue to grow year on year to a roll of over 1800 students, aged 3-18. Both academies will be run cohesively sharing the same staff, values, curriculum, opportunities and expectations of excellence.
The post is for 33.45 hours per week (term time only). Hours of work will be 8.15am – 3.30pm Monday to Friday. Flexibility to work additional days during the holidays may be required. There is also the possibility of working with our wrap around care provider (Funtastic Kids) supporting the running of a breakfast club and an after school club https://funtastickids.co.uk.
King’s Academy Binfield and King’s Academy Oakwood are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young students and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will need to undertake an Enhanced DBS check.
