The Queen Elizabeth Academy are seeking to appoint an outstanding Teaching Assistant to join our dynamic Learning Support department, and our forward thinking, modern academy. We are looking to recruit someone with a child centered approach and excellent people skills to support students effectively in order for them to fully participate in learning. You will be joining an experienced and exciting department, creating a culture of outstanding success amongst our students.
We are determined to provide the very best experience for our students and have a passion for student centred learning which removes the barriers to learning where ever they exist. The successful candidate will work closely with students, both individually and as a group, and have effective communication skills to liaise closely and collaborate with staff throughout the Academy.
The Queen Elizabeth Academy is an 11-16 mixed academy based in Atherstone with approximately 715 pupils on roll. Following our Ofsted inspection in June 2022, we retained our “Good” rating, a real testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff and students. Ofsted commented the pupils were “respectful of each other’s views and are exceptionally supportive. Pupils behave well. They are proud of their school and the improvements that have been made in recent years. Pupils enjoy school and know that leaders and staff have the highest expectations for them.” The Ofsted report is a fair reflection of the academy and we continue to develop as we push from Good to Great.
In November 2016, as part of the Priority School Building Programme, we moved into brand new premises that have given us access to fantastic new facilities, which really set us apart in the locality
