The Coopers’ Company and Coborn School is a dynamic, co-educational school.
Inspired by our historic tradition of 'Love as Brethren', we strive to be outstanding in everything we do; producing young people who have the confidence, qualifications, experience and aspiration to be successful in the 21st Century world.
We are looking to appoint a Learning Support Assistant to join the SEN department to work with students who have special educational needs and disabilities.
The ideal person will have experience of undertaking duties throughout the school day for secondary school students with additional learning needs; ensure confidentiality with regard to sensitive issues that arise and contribute to the continuing development of the SEN team and the support they provide.
You should have a genuine interest in the welfare and education of young people; any particular interest in literacy, dyslexia, speech and language or autism would be advantageous but not essential as being an interested, patient and kind individual underlies the success of working with children. Experience of working with students in a secondary school environment is preferable.
We enjoy a fine reputation for the quality of our pastoral care and extra-curricular provision and are committed to the professional development of all our staff, as well as innovative teaching and learning strategies.
The school is a short walk from Upminster station where Overground and Underground services are available; these connect to central London (Fenchurch Street), Romford and all District Line destinations. The school is also a short drive from the M25, A12 and A13.
Interested parties are invited to contact Rachna Carron, Assistant Headteacher and SENCO for an informal discussion about the post at firstname.lastname@example.org
