Thank you for expressing an interest in working at Bluecoat C of E Primary School. Please see below any available opportunities.

Inclusion Practitioner / LSA

Permanent: Grade D / Start Date: Jan 2019

Permanent: 27.5hrs/week 38 weeks/year

We are seeking to appoint a confident, hard-working, highly skilled practitioner, with extensive experience working with pupils with high level needs (or a desire to specialise in this area) to work within the specialist provision unit within our mainstream setting.

This is an exciting and unique opportunity to work alongside our specialist support teachers, to promote an alternative child-centred approach to meeting the needs of identified KS2 pupils who have previously struggled to thrive. The role will require a forward thinking, creative approach combined with resilience and determination to improve outcomes for children, some of whom sometimes exhibit significantly challenging behaviour. Applicants will need to be highly organised, pro-active, versatile and resilient. An enthusiasm to engage in action research would be a distinct advantage.

Responsibilities will include setting up and maintaining a bespoke environment, planning and preparing provision alongside the specialist support teacher, and working directly with pupils, parents and other staff from a wide range of external agencies to improve outcomes for our most vulnerable children and their families.

A willingness to undertake specialist training is essential. High expectations and the capacity to relate to, engage with, and empower vulnerable pupils and their families are essential requirements for this post.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

For further information please contact Andrea Magarotto (01805) 622333, or email

Closing Date: Friday 12th October 2018
