King Edwin School is a growing, independent SEMH school based in Norton, within Stockton-On-Tees. The school opened in June 2014 and offers learning opportunities to young people from across the Tees Valley, many of whom have failed within a mainstream environment.

Due to the continued growth of King Edwin School, recently rated Good by Ofsted, a vacancy has arisen for a Teaching Assistant to join our focused and professional team. The successful candidate will be highly experienced and able with respect to engaging with and supporting vulnerable and challenging children.  The appointee will be relentless in supporting our students to achieve a high standard of attainment throughout their time with the school, and in preparing the students for their next steps. Our Teaching Assistants must be flexible, innovative and responsive, able to work effectively with our teachers to identify every opportunity to help our children and young people develop their skills and confidence, both academically and personally.

The school has a warm, family based ethos, focused on the values of growth mindset, kindness, personal responsibility and resilience. We strive to help to improve the lives of each of our children and their families when a child joins the school

We seek to recruit kind, caring, professional and dedicated staff members to complement our high performing teams. We need people who can respond to the needs of our children and parents consistently and positively, irrespective of their role within the team. In return we offer a highly supportive employment package, including access to funded approved training and excellent progression opportunities.

If this describes you, and you feel that you can make a difference to young people and their education, we would love to hear from you.
