St. George’s School is a unique provision for SEN as a secondary school for students with severe and complex needs.

We are looking to appoint LSAs to provide classroom assistance across the school to a range of students with special needs, some of whom exhibit challenging behaviour related to their learning difficulties.  Applicants will need to be able to cope and manage in a challenging environment with special needs children.

Experience of a working knowledge of young people with autism and complex needs would be an advantage.

It is essential that applicants have a Level 2 Maths and English qualification, or equivalent.

We can offer:

  • Wonderful students.
  • The opportunity to be part of an adaptable, committed and skilled staff team.
  • A creative learning environment, timetable and curriculum.
  • A wide range of training opportunities for career development.

This council and its schools recruit according to the council's Safer Recruitment policy and are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment.

This School is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.

Please note that a strategic partnership between the Isle of Wight Council and Hampshire County Council is currently in place. Your employer will be the Isle of Wight Council and employment is on Isle of Wight Council terms and conditions delivered through delegated employment powers to the school's Governing Body. However, Hampshire County Council delivers, on behalf of the Isle of Wight Council, all children's services functions, for a period of five years from 1 July 2013. Accordingly Hampshire County Council is responsible for providing challenge and support to Isle of Wight schools on behalf of the local authority.
