Job Description

Inspire their Remarkable

Learning Support Assistant

£17,468- £18,954

 Richmond Park Academy (RPA), is part of the Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) group and is situated in East Sheen, close to Richmond Park. Richmond, Kingston and the West End are all between 15 and 30 minutes journey from the school and our proximity to central London means that students can benefit enormously from the vast range of social, cultural, sporting and academic opportunities that we are able to access.

Our student body is diverse, exciting and talented - and the same is true of our staff. We put huge emphasis on professional development, most of it in-house, and are proud of the high number of good and outstanding teachers who work in our school. We are also noted for our 'can do' attitude. We are keen, always, to encourage new and/or young staff to make their mark as soon as they are ready. 

The school completed a £10m rebuild and refurbishment programme, including the introduction of a 6th form in 2014. Our 2018 Ofsted reported that we were a 'good' school in all categories. The inspectors judged: "The principal is respected across the school and has communicated a clear vision for the school to all members of the school community. He has empowered the leadership team to raise standards and hold staff to account for pupils' outcomes through a relentless focus on improving teaching and learning. Staff feel well supported and happy to be part of the drive for improvement". 

The Learning and Achievement Faculty supports the teaching and learning of all pupils, but particularly those with special educational needs. Ideally the newly appointed member of staff will have the expertise from previously working with Social, Emotional and Mental Health SEN students. An ability to establish a positive relationship with students is imperative in order to support the development of basic skills and to maximise their teaching and learning. You will also be an excellent administrator, being able to work on your own initiative, in order to prepare well for the students, as well as being part of a team. He or she will be a committed and hardworking team player who will support the pupils, staff and parents in continuing to raise the profile and ongoing success of the department and, more widely, the Academy. 

You will have the ability to liaise and work closely in small groups or on a one to one basis in order to assist students in line with the national curriculum, codes of practice as well the Academy policies and procedures 

We passionately believe that every child can discover their own remarkable life. It's what motivates us around here. We know this vision requires something extra. Which is why at AET, you'll find more. More opportunities, so you can forge your own path. More care and support, so you can prioritise what matters most. More purpose, for you and for the children we're inspiring. 

We offer:

  • More training and development, so you can get better at what you do - Varied and stretching continuous professional development opportunities.
  • More support for you and your loved ones - A health cash plan, employee loans and savings scheme, discounted gym membership and employee assistance programme.
  • More technology so you can make more impact - G Suite for Education embedded throughout. Collaborative cloud technology gives you access to the latest tools, when and where it suits you. More tech enabled classrooms mean less time spent on admin and more time teaching.
  • More reward - A generous and flexible Local Government Pension scheme for support staff.
  • More possibilities - To inspire children to find their remarkable.
