PolyMAT is a small and ambitious MAT with a unique family feel. Our vision is ‘Success for Everyone’ which places inclusion and well-being at its heart. We currently have two schools in our Trust: Woolwich Polytechnic School for Boys, a long-successful boys’ school, and Woolwich Polytechnic School for Girls that opened in 2019 and will comprise Years 7 – 10 from September 2022. We also have our flourishing Sixth Form provision which is co-educational. Our Trust and our schools pride themselves on a culture of high standards delivered through our Values of Care and Unity. We provide a rewarding environment where students and staff feel valued and supported and everyone feels part of the larger family as our schools and departments work very closely together and are located next to each other.
We are looking for reliable and committed Learning Support Assistants for both Woolwich Polytechnic School for Boys and Woolwich Polytechnic School for Girls. The ideal candidates will have the qualities, skills and drive necessary to fulfil this role. You will be working with students with special educational needs, helping them to achieve their targets as set out in their Individual Education Plans.
You will be required to support teaching staff to match individual needs across the curriculum for students with a wide range of learning difficulties to encourage the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of all pupils.
You should have a good all-round education with A’ Levels and GCSE grade C or above in English and Mathematics (or equivalent). A degree is desirable but not essential. Experience of work with students of secondary school age is preferable.
