The Woodlands Academy is a Special School that educates children aged 2 -16.

The Governors, management, staff and stakeholders at The Woodlands Academy all contribute to and share the ethos that underpins our school development. We understand the needs of our pupils and ‘Strive’ to meet them educationally and emotionally. The work involved is demanding physically and emotionally, it is also incredibly rewarding.

We live and work in a beautiful area of the country with beach and forest accessible in minutes; we use our community and wider environment to enrich the education of our pupils. We provide them with nurture and structure, this enables engagement and challenge. It takes a certain type of personality to successfully deliver the support and education we offer, we know from a wealth of experience that it is not easy and we have detailed support mechanisms in place for all new starters whether pupils or staff.

With all this in mind we are looking to recruit the right people who can demonstrate an understanding of our ethos.

General Teaching Assistants work under the direction of the class teacher and other appropriate staff, assisting in and contributing to the planning, delivery and evaluation of the learning process.

The role will involve working with both groups and individual pupils.

Applicants should have a genuine interest in working with children with special needs and are required to have:

  • Good written & communication skills
  • Experience appropriate to working with children in an education setting.
  • Be committed to fostering an environment that is encouraging, caring and supporting, with the physical and medical needs of children being catered for to the highest standard

Experience of working with children with challenging behaviour is desirable.

For an informal discussion please contact Assistant Headteacher (J Hampshire) on:  01723 373260

This is an excellent opportunity to join a school that is friendly, supportive and committed to high standards of education and welfare for children.
