We are looking for SEND Education Support (Teaching Assistants with SEND experience) who are a special kind of person who can enable our students to be empowered in having the complete school experience regardless of needs and so they are able to achieve their personal academic success.

Mangotsfield School is situated in leafy South Gloucestershire, less than 20 minutes away from the heart of the cosmopolitan vibrancy of Bristol City Centre. We believe that our pupils have the right to be within a safe, caring environment where they can really love learning. A place that creates enthusiasm in all we do. A safe environment that encourages and celebrates challenge, respect and community.
Our commitment is to provide each and every pupil with a high standard of education that sets them up for a happy and successful life.
Join us on our journey in making every school a great school.
