Harris Hill are delighted to be recruiting for an LSA to join a wonderful co-educational school on a part time basis, from January 2020 until July 2020. This is a wonderful opportunity for an SEN person to undertake a part time position on fixed term basis.
We aim to provide an atmosphere in which each child can flourish and we believe that children succeed when they take full advantage of the huge range of different opportunities we provide – whether immersed in academic research, being out on the sports field, taking part in charitable activities, acting on the stage, playing music and attending some of our numerous clubs and societies, our pupils challenge themselves and learn by taking part wholeheartedly in school life.
The Learning Support Department meets the needs of students with Specific Learning Differences and those with academic weaknesses. The Department consists of a full time Head of Learning Support/SENCO and two part time Learning Support Assistants. Support for students is offered on a one to one weekly basis, small group or classroom basis. All Learning Support sessions are funded by the school.
