Permanent position – Starting as soon as possible
Term Time Only (37 hours per week) plus 15 days

Carr Manor Community School (CMCS) is an ‘all-through’ school at an exciting phase of expansion and development across both our primary and secondary phases. We are proud of our caring and inclusive reputation and have a strong team of professionals committed to developing and delivering a broad curriculum to children aged 4-19.

We are one of the founding partners of the Leeds Learning Alliance and we are looking forward to further developing our partnerships over the forthcoming months and years.

We are now looking to appoint a Learning Support Worker who has the tenacity, skills and flexibility to work in a fast-moving environment and the passion to help our children in both our Primary and Secondary phases to progress and develop.

  • The successful candidate will have Maths and English GCSE, grade C or above (or equivalent), strong IT skills, well developed organisational and communication skills and a basic understanding of child development and learning strategies.
  • An awareness of special educational needs and disabilities, particularly autism and speech and language would be useful.
  • The post holder will be expected to undertake a wide range of duties including: supporting pupils’ learning and overall well-being; assisting teachers and other colleagues in the classroom and in small group interventions; cover supervision; recording and collating information; developing good relationships with parents/carers, colleagues and partner organisations; preparing classroom resources, equipment and materials; and supporting the implementation of whole school strategies, including literacy, our Coaching programme and House system, after school clubs, further and flexible learning, break/lunch duty, support movement of children around the building and invigilation duties.

It is essential that the post-holder shares our school’s ethos, which is firmly rooted in a restorative approach and the following values: to ‘Know our Children Well’: to be ‘Partners in Learning’: to develop ‘Character for Learning’; to ‘Enjoy and Achieve’. We firmly believe that in order to move forwards, we need to be prepared and able to ‘do things differently and do different things’. We work restoratively with pupils, families and with each other, to maintain the ‘strong community culture’ that Ofsted recognised when they visited us in June 2018.

We significantly invest in the development and training of all colleagues (including opportunities for Assessment Only route) who are equally happy to share their expertise, skills and knowledge across the organisation. We promote diversity and want a workforce which reflects the population of Leeds. This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All successful applications will be subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring check and satisfactory references.

If you are looking to be stretched and challenged within a positive and creative staff team and you have a genuine desire to make a positive difference to our children, please see information on how to apply below.

“The relationships between staff and pupils are extremely positive. Pupils wear their uniform with pride and are respectful to each other and staff. There is a calm and purposeful atmosphere in the school.” (Ofsted, July 2018)
