SET Ixworth School is ‘an incredibly inclusive environment’ where ‘teaching is strong’ and ‘where pupils and teachers know each other extremely well.’ (OFSTED, 2019).

In September 2020, we extended our provision to include a brand new Interaction and Communication Centre for up to 18 Key Stage 3 students in Year 7, and 24 students from Year 8. This centre is part of our mainstream provision, facilitating personalised pathways for each student.

As part of our mission to meet the needs of each and every young person, we now have a fantastic opportunity for a SEN Teaching Assistant to join our close-knit Community at SET Ixworth School. 

You will:

  • have an understanding of the SEN Code of Practice, and inclusive practice within a school setting
  • demonstrate a knowledge of the variety of barriers to learning that students face
  • preferably have experience in a secondary school with excellent numeracy and literacy skills
  • be able to establish positive and respectful relationships with students
  • be an effective team player with high standards of integrity and approachability.

We will offer you:

  • an atmosphere of mutual support and cooperation, where you will have access to promotion opportunities and superb professional development across all three free schools
  • a happy and supportive work environment, with high expectations of staff and students and a competitive salary based on skills and experience.
