Northfield School is a large 11-16 school and specialist sports college.  We are an ambitious and inclusive school with state of the art facilities and interactive technology in a well-resourced newly refurbished main building and a separate new Year 7 school.

We are looking to appoint a positive, flexible, proactive and enthusiastic Learning Support Assistant. The successful candidate will be a patient and caring individual who can provide effective enhanced support to Visually Impaired pupils, with a strong emphasis on developing pupil confidence and promoting independent learning.

We can offer you:
-an enthusiastic, talented and supportive team
-a newly built and superbly resourced teaching and learning   environment
-excellent opportunities for CPD
-a staff health and well being programme
-a warm, friendly and positive working environment where everyone is   valued
