The Governors are looking to appoint a Support Assistant Level 3 to start as soon as possible. This is an opportunity to join a forward thinking school, where pupils’ behaviour is consistently outstanding. We are part of the Gosforth Schools' Trust where there are opportunities to build common approaches to supporting SEND pupils' needs. We have a vacancy due to increased numbers of pupils with high needs applying to our school.
