LSA - Kingsley OR Windsor
JOB TITLE: Learning Support Assistant
LOCATION: Kingsley, Hampshire, OR Windsor, Berkshire
REPORTING TO: Head of School
The Green Room Schools are based in the centre of historic Windsor (known as GRW) and on a farm in Kingsley (known as GRK). They are independent schools providing a second chance at education for young people aged 13 -18 (GRW) and 11-16 (GRK). Our pupils have, for various reasons, found it difficult to learn in mainstream education. They all have Education Health Care Plans indicating a variety of needs, including support for their ASD, ADHD, ODD, PDA and/or emotional and behavioural difficulties. We provide a broad, lively, and stimulating curriculum for our pupils ranging from English, Maths, Science, and Art. We offer a wide variety of sport, PHSE and other activities including looking after our allotment in Windsor, and in Kingsley, looking after our range of animals and getting stuck into our outside activities on the farm. Our pupils want to be at our schools, it is not a place they are ‘sent’. This is crucial to the culture and success of what we do.
Do to the nature of our pupils this role would ideally suit someone who really wants to make a difference to young people’s lives; someone who wants to help them reach their potential by giving them a second chance; someone who is humble yet confident, enthusiastic yet understands the need for boundaries, and energetic yet calm. Do you want to demonstrate your own virtuosity but recognise the need for structure and systems? Can you be an extraordinary role model to pupils and staff alike? Our success is built on outstanding staff/pupil relationships and creating a safe environment for our pupils to thrive. Experience is useful but your patience, work ethic and love of our ethos is even more important to us. If you’d like to help our pupils overcome their issues to achieve great things inside the classroom and/or out on our farm please apply to join our brilliant team.
