The Market Bosworth School is seeking to appoint up to two members of staff to join our teaching and learning team. The successful candidates will be integral to supporting the learning of students, primarily in either the Maths or Science subject areas. Whilst we would expect applicants to have worked with young people in some capacity, specific experience is less important than a dedication to professional development alongside a flexible and committed teamwork approach.
The Market Bosworth School is very proud of its students and staff. We have excellent academic standards and work hard to create a safe and enjoyable learning environment for all. We have been rated as an “Outstanding” school by Ofsted 3 times in 2009, 2012 and most recently in 2018, where inspectors commented “A sense of care and nurture permeates the school”.
The successful SSTA will work alongside teaching staff, primarily in either Maths or Science. Their role is to support the class teacher in maximising teaching and learning of all students, but with a clear focus on those who require additional support.
Working alongside the class teacher, and as directed by the subject Head of Department, SSTAs will support learning in a wide range of ways, including:
One to one support for a named student
Small group work (2 to 6 students) either within or outside of the classroom
Assisting the lead member of staff in planning, resourcing or lesson delivery
Providing additional support to individual students in line with their EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan)
Helping ensure students understand tasks given
Motivating individual students, using praise wherever possible
Awarding reward stamps using the existing school systems
Challenging student behaviour where required
Contacting Parents where required and as directed
Acting as a Year 11 student mentor
Assisting the department in setting online learning work
The successful candidates will work within one named department for the majority of their time. We expect this to be within either Maths or Science, although we will work with the successful candidate to ensure we capitalise on their skills / subject knowledge wherever possible.
Whilst each SSTA will have a named department, there will be a requirement to remain flexible, with priority given to students with an EHCP in other subjects as necessary.
The Market Bosworth School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.We particularly welcome applications from under represented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.
