Here at Horizon Education Trust we are entering an exciting time as the realisation of our special area school in Alconbury Weald, Prestley Wood Academy, is on track to open its doors in September 2024.


The school has brand new, state of the art specialist facilities, a knowledgeable and friendly senior leadership team and the support of the many experienced staff from across the schools and our central team in our values led trust community.


We require Teaching Assistants to support teaching with pupils who have a wide range of complex needs, including challenging behaviours and autism within our area special school. The successful candidate could be asked to work with any age group in the school.


Experience of working with special needs children is desirable, but not essential. Full training and support is given.


Qualifications related to the field are desirable, but not essential. The successful candidate would need to understand and use ICT systems and write to parents/carers in home/school communication.


The post offers a good opportunity to work with supportive and friendly teams.

All appointments are subject to satisfactory references, health and DBS check. The school has an Induction Programme and an ongoing commitment of staff professional development.


Please contact Jo Tregent on jtregent@prestleywood.org.uk for an application pack.


Closing date for applications: This vacancy is for multiple positions and will close once all positions have been filled but will close before the summer holidays and we reserve the right to close this advert if we receive sufficient applications ahead of this.


Applications will be reviewed and interviews scheduled on a rolling basis; therefore, we recommend that you apply sooner rather than later.


Prestley Wood Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
