What is the job role?
You will be employed by the trust which consists of five schools led by Sidney Stringer Academy. The schools are Radford Primary Academy, Ernesford Grange Community Academy, Riverbank Academy (Special School), Sidney Stringer Primary School and Sidney Stringer Academy.
We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and passionate Learning Support Assistant (LSA) who specialises in Science.

You will also be expected to be a co-tutor, which means that you will provide support to a form tutor and belong to one of our five houses.
Nearly 18% of the students at the Academy are identified as SEND and within this there is a varied spectrum of additional needs. We strive to ensure that all students have equal access to a broad and balanced curriculum and our LSAs are integral to this.
