The school is seeking to appoint a Learning Support Assistant to support students in the classroom as well as assisting students with physical difficulties.
The work may include some personal care. The post would suit a cheerful individual who can work independently or in a team.
An ability or willingness to teach small groups of students and to support their literacy or numeracy skills and individual development is essential.
Waddesdon Church of England School is a co-educational 11-18 secondary school with just under 1,000 students on roll, and around 260 students in the Sixth Form.
Our daily routines and educational practice are rooted in the twin values of Dignity and Respect.
Just as it takes a village to raise a child , so does it take a whole school community, in partnership with families, to educate a young person for life.
We believe in positive relationships and promote the value of being a purposeful and productive member of the community in our work with our young people.
The Enrichment team vision is to ensure that all students, whatever their starting point or specific educational needs, flourish at Waddesdon and achieve outstanding progress in all subjects, in particular English and Maths.
Since being inspected in September 2006, when the school was judged as Outstanding by OfSTED, our sustained high results have validated this judgement for ten successive years.
We are amongst a handful of schools nationally who are in this position.
As a Church of England school within the Diocese of Oxford, our values are grounded in the Christian faith, although we welcome equally young people and staff of all faiths and none.
An inspection by the Society for the Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools in March 2018 also judged the school to be Outstanding as a Church of England school.
