JOB PURPOSE: Learning Support Assistant Grade 4 – Literacy Support


We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed Learning Support Assistant to join our successful SEND team and thriving school. The Bulmershe School is a heavily oversubscribed school which sits at the heart of the community. We are a mixed local authority, 11-18 school of approximately 1400 students, who come from diverse backgrounds and cultures. We work closely with our parents, partners and feeder school to achieve the best outcomes for all of our students. We were rated as ‘Good’ in our last OFSTED report and are aiming for Outstanding.


The role entails working with students with a range of SEND needs to support reading, reading comprehension and spelling attainment. The successful applicant will be self- motivated, able to take responsibility for small groups of learners ensuring that progress in literacy is tracked and recorded.


Alongside supporting SEND students in a range of classroom settings, the successful applicant will be confident in delivering small group literacy interventions at KS4 . The successful applicant will take responsibility for creating resources and delivering interventions for learners who have literacy / learning difficulties and supporting those learners to access the GCSE curriculum. Some knowledge of GCSE English curricula would be advantageous


The SEND department has its own base with fantastic facilities which afford a superb environment in which to work and learn. We are a friendly and supportive team of 15 staff within the department who have a wealth of experience. With an ever changing world, we continue to learn and adapt in order to support our students.
