Our School:
Alderman Knight Special School is an ‘Outstanding’ school (January 2019) catering for children between 7 and 19 who have a range of complex needs that impact on their learning. This includes Autism, social communication, emotional and speech and language needs. A small minority have more severe learning difficulties.

Pupils’ have a wide attainment range. In the primary phase the majority of the pupils are working within P levels and KS 1 expectations. However, across the secondary phase, attainment can range from Y1 to KS3 expectations and pupils achieve a wide range of accreditations including Entry Level, Level 1 and 2 qualifications and GCSEs. Some students in KS5 have the opportunity to study Level 3 qualifications within the neighbouring secondary school.
Unlike the majority of special schools, we offer a mainstream model in Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 with state-of-the-art specialist classrooms. Our Post-16 provision is a recent addition to the school, starting in September 2016.

What We Can Offer:
The school is located just off Junction 9 of the M5. Both the main school building and the Post-16 Centre are new, attractive and spacious buildings being built in 2013 and 2017 respectively. The learning and working environments are second to none. In addition, the school can offer:
• Local authority pension
• Access to a small on-site gym
• Mentoring for new/existing teachers
• Extensive CPD opportunities
• Opportunities for development and progression
• A challenging but positive and enormously rewarding work place.

What We Are Looking For:
Applications are invited from dedicated, confident and proficient candidates to join AKS within a strong team of Teaching Assistants. We are looking for candidates with experience supporting the learning of children with a range of special educational needs and with a working knowledge of the national curriculum. The successful candidates will also have a good understanding of the factors influencing how children learn.

The Role:
The post will form part of a fantastic team of Teaching Assistants that work across the school. Teaching Assistants are supported to work to their strengths and experience. It is likely this post will be working within the secondary phase of the school. In carrying out their duties and responsibilities effectively Teaching Assistants will provide focused support for pupils, teachers, the curriculum and the school.
