Firth Park Academy is proud to be a Good school and determined to become an Outstanding school. We are a wonderfully diverse family of students and staff where our vision is to inspire all students to lead remarkable lives. We offer the widest range of extra-curricular enrichment possible to ensure our students are rich in knowledge and character. We want students to achieve academic excellence, develop strength of character and above all else, be happy.  Our school is:

  • A stronger-than-ever 'Good' school as rated by Ofsted (March 2019).
  • Home of an Extended School Day for Years 7 and 11 to ensure the broadest possible curriculum of academic learning and extra-curricular experiences
  • Featured on CBBC's series Our School 3, which highlights the successful transition students make into Year 7.
  • A richly diverse community with students speaking more than 30 home languages.
  • A leading school in our trust - Academies Enterprise Trust - the largest trust in the UK with more career development opportunities than any other.

We love to help our students learn and value the staff who help them do so, thanks to:

  • A real ethos of family where we all value strong positive relationships and support each other.
  • An outstanding professional development programme for staff at all stages of their career.

We are looking for a passionate, motivated and dedicated Teaching Assistant to work in partnership with teaching and other educational support staff.  You will provide learning support for pupils, working with them as directed by teaching staff within a structured teaching situation or individually as required in accordance with academy policies and procedures.  

The successful candidate will also need to possess the ability to encourage students to become independent learners, by providing support for their welfare and inclusion in all aspects of Academy life.

AET can offer: 

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. 

  • More opportunity to grow your career - We'll support you in developing your career and experience at this school or another AET school.
  • More tailored support - We understand every academy is unique. We'll give you tailored support and flexibility, allowing you to do what's best for your children. 
  • More chance to see what's out there - We create opportunities for teachers to visit other AET academies and learn from outside experience.
  • More like minded colleagues, so you can benefit from others' experience - You're connected to our network of 58 academies and thousands of education professionals. 
  • 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.
