Uniform Education are proud to be working on behalf of a small inclusive Church of England secondary school in Southwark who are recruiting for a full-time LSA with a degree in Mathematics.
The position is to start in September 2018 on a long-term basis. Ideally the school would like to recruit someone who has aspirations to become a qualified Maths teacher in the future as they will in time look to put the successful applicant on their school direct teacher training programme. Therefore having a degree in Maths is essential.
In addition to having a strong academic background, the successful candidate will need to be able to demonstrate a commitment to working with young people, from all backgrounds and abilities. Training will be offered and from there the person will be expected to work somewhat independently with guidance.
Information about the school:
This is a much smaller than average sized Church of England secondary school in Southwark. The new Principal has been in post since September 2014. Over two thirds of students are girls.

The proportion of disadvantaged students known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding for children who are looked after and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals) is above average, over half the school's population. The majority of students are from minority ethnic backgrounds. Almost half the students speak English as an additional language which is much higher than the national average. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs is above average. A large number of students were entered early for their mathematics GCSE last year. No students attend an off-site provision. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for student's attainment and progress
