Children with special needs require special Teaching Assistants. Like you.


An experienced and successful Teaching Assistant, ideally with a background within an SEMH school, you will bring everything it takes to engage children and transform their futures. Like us, you will be passionate about safeguarding, deeply committed to releasing potential, and determined to make a difference every day. If you have what it takes, your future could take you anywhere within the school or across the Trust’s network of 22 academies.

At the heart of Academy Transformation Trust, Phoenix Academy supports primary age pupils with a range of social, emotional and mental health issues. Our Thematic Curriculum introduces a new topic every half term and stimulates a real love of learning, and we are passionate about the Every Child Matters agenda – so we’re giving vulnerable children everything they need to become happy, stable and productive citizens.

You will bring our innovative curriculum to life as you maintain good order and discipline, engage pupils with SEN, and stimulate children of all abilities to reach their full potential. We will give you real scope to develop the social, emotional and cultural aspects of your pupils’ learning, and encourage you to set clear targets for both behaviour and academic achievement, so you will enjoy plenty of autonomy and wide-ranging opportunities to shape the way we work.

As part of Academy Transformation Trust, we work inclusively within our communities, embracing the varied localities we serve, while sharing our common vision and values. We share a passion about Diversity and Inclusion and welcome all applications.

In return, we offer to you:

  • An amazing people development offer through our ATT Institute providing you with continuous self-development.
  • A comprehensive package of benefits via our benefits platform. You will enjoy shopping discounts, cycle-to-work scheme, cinema tickets and an employee assistance programme.
  • A generous Local Government Pension Scheme.
