We are a successful, happy primary school built on Christian beliefs and values.  Our last OFSTED inspection was in 2015, and we were proud to be rated as Good. We joined Liverpool Diocesan Schools Trust in February 2018.

Liverpool Diocesan Schools Trust (LDST) is a rapidly growing multi-academy trust at the next crucial stage of its development. It was established by the Diocese of Liverpool to provide its schools with a Multi Academy Trust that has the vision and values of the Church of England at its heart.   All of our schools are rated at least Good by OFSTED and 63% of our academies are outstanding. 

We put our children at the heart of all that we do.  We are poised to keep making big improvements in our strive for Outstanding.  We want you to help us make it happen.

Under the direction of the SENCO and Class Teacher you would be required to provide support for children with additional needs. Other duties would include:

  • Working with and supervising the physical/general care of individuals and groups of children under the direction the teacher
  • Providing general support to the teacher in the management of pupils in the classroom, and contributing to the planning, development and implementation of intervention as appropriate.
  • Modifying or adapting activities or resources as agreed with the teacher to enable pupils to achieve intended learning outcomes and providing regular feedback on pupils learning and behaviour to the teacher/SENCO.

The ideal candidate will have had some experience of working with children with ADHD/ASC and be enthusiastic, conscientious and self-motivated. They will have a patient, nurturing nature and be effective in promoting concentration and good learning behaviour.

To start the journey, tell us about yourself.  Share your vision of education.  Explain how you can work with our Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to enable all our children to reach their full potential.  In return we will tell you how we can make you shine, and help you take your career anywhere within the Trust’s family of schools.
