All employees at St Aidan’s have repeat DBS checks at least every 5 years and wear an identity badge with a photograph that identifies them.

All visitors are required to wear a visitor’s badge after identifying themselves at reception and signing into the premises.

The school has a Child Protection Policy which operates within Local Authority Safeguarding Children Board and Government parameters. It is available on the policy documents page of the school website or from Mrs G Soper (Deputy Head and School Child Protection Coordinator).

 Band 5, £11,365 – £12,214 (including SEN allowance)

Suitable candidates for the role are friendly, caring and sensitive individuals, who are able to offer social stimulation as well as care to the student. The job is a physical one and often requires manual handling, so a good level of fitness is also required.

Some teaching assistant support will also be required for this student and / or for other students (working under the direction of the classroom teacher)

Applications should be by letter by Friday 21st April 2017 to Mrs J Rowland, Head of Learning Support, indicating the particular skills and experience you can offer. Please also complete the non teaching staff application form below.
