Marden High is a thriving 11-16 school that represents everything that is exciting about comprehensive education. We are a school with high aspirations for all our students.
We have an enviable record of examination success, and our former students are to be found in many diverse and successful roles, most having moved through further and higher education. Students regularly achieve excellent academic results, well above the national average, but the staff and governors at Marden believe we can always improve even further. We demand that the learning experience for our students moves with the times whilst maintaining the traditions of good manners, discipline and respect for others. We are looking for an exceptional Teaching Assistant to join our fantastic school.
We wish to appoint an enthusiastic and highly skilled Specialist Sensory Teaching Assistant (Visual Impairment) to join our successful SEND team, to provide a range of specialist interventions to support the learning of a severely visually impaired pupil which will facilitate equality of access to high quality learning opportunities and ensure full access and participation and improved learning outcomes.
If you have a minimum of 5 A*-C including English & Maths, an NVQ Level 3 for Teaching Assistants or equivalent qualification/experience, patience, commitment and excellent communication skills, and are prepared to work hard to have a positive impact on our students, this is the job for you.
Potential candidates are welcome to contact Matt Snape, Headteacher, for an informal briefing on 0191 2962771.
Closing date: Friday 19 May 2017
