 We wish to appoint a Teaching Assistant Level 3 to provide effective cover supervision in all subject areas throughout the age and ability range.  The successful candidate will also assist with the work of the SEND team, under the direction of the SENDCo, when whole school cover is not required.  Lord Derby Academy and its SEND team received positive feedback in the school’s recent Ofsted inspections:

  • Pupils’ behaviour is consistently good around school and in lessons. Leaders’ actions have sustained the good behaviour of pupils noted at the last inspection (Ofsted April 2019)
  • Leaders know the pupils and the community well. Parents, carers and members of the community have confidence in the school’s leadership. As a result, the number of pupils on the school’s roll has risen significantly (Ofsted April 2019)
  • The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding (Ofsted April 2019)
  • There is a carefully researched and designed training programme. Staff say that they benefit from the training programme and some are inspired by it (Ofsted April 2019)
  • The special educational needs coordinator takes effective steps to support the good learning of pupils with SEND. The information provided for teachers about these pupils is detailed and supported by staff training (Ofsted April 2019)
  • The morale, dedication and commitment of the staff are contagious (Ofsted January 2017)


The Dean Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All post holders are subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring check and Disqualification
