The Special Educational Needs and Academies Trust (SENDAT) is a Multi Academy Trust whose provisions support a range of needs including Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD), Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Social, Emotional & Mental Health and Behavioural (SEMH) needs. Our core aim is to provide for the continuum of special needs across the Eastern region.  

SENDAT Mount Road is a class of six students with ASD and behavioural issues (a different profile of need to other Priory students). Located on the Priory site, this is a ‘school within a school’. Mount Road students have a dedicated teaching and support team.  

The aim of the Mount Road provision is to work with students with ASD to develop the skills for them to successful return to a mainstream environment by the end of Year 9, or a suitable alternative. With this in mind, the work which they complete is similar to that within a mainstream setting but they require specialist guidance and support with their social skills and behaviour.

An exciting new opportunity has arisen for a Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) to join the Mount Road team. You will support teaching and learning, working independently with whole class, small groups and one-to-one as required. This is a challenging role, but incredibly rewarding as part of a team which works together to make a real positive difference to the lives of our children with ASD and behavioural issues.

As part of the SENDAT, we offer:

  • employee benefits including pensions, healthcare cash plan and cycle2work scheme
  • a wide range of professional development opportunities
  • a supportive working environment.
