Courtlands is a friendly and ambitious special school who cater for primary aged (4 years – 11 years) children with Moderate Learning Difficulties and Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs.  Our innovative curriculum is based on meeting individual’s needs rather than schemes of work, and provides a wide range of curriculum and therapeutic input. You see therapies many schools do not offer and a curriculum that invents and interests. You see learning organised to meet the developmental needs of the children and we have the confidence to buck the trend, stand out, and to aim for the outstanding.

We are looking for a compassionate and resilient Teaching Assistant to support the children in our school. You will be assigned to work with a group of children, or one particular child. You should be armed with flexibility and plenty of resilience to come back each day with a ‘new day’ attitude. You will be fully supported by the team of Teaching Assistants and our Teaching staff in order to get the best out of the children who attend Courtlands.

This is an exciting opportunity for a confident and motivated individual to work under the guidance of teaching/senior staff within the school.  We can offer you a role that will genuinely make a real difference to the lives of our children and their families, but it will be hard work, requiring creativity, resilience and perseverance.

If you have good communication skills, and a desire to help make a difference to young people’s lives then we would like to hear from you.
