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 our growth, a vacancy has arisen for an SEMH Teaching assistant, ideally to commence at the outset of the new term. The successful candidate will be highly experienced and able with respect to engaging with and supporting vulnerable and challenging children within this age bracket. 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.

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.

Visits to the school are welcomed and encouraged, please contact Christine Williams on 01642 366610 or alternatively email at if you would like to arrange an informal discussion. You can also contact us on our Facebook page (King Edwin School) via Facebook messenger.
