Eastwood Grange School is a specialist day school located in the village of Ashover, near Chesterfield for boys aged 9-18 years. The pupils exhibit a variety of severe and complex educational, social, emotional and mental health difficulties, which have impeded personal developmental and educational success. Many of the pupils have a number of diagnoses. Our pupils have failed in, or have been failed by, a variety of settings before coming to Eastwood Grange School. They arrive at Eastwood Grange very disengaged with education and life after having experienced many break downs and trauma.

This is an exciting time for Eastwood Grange School, due to the progressive expansion of our school with the aim of increasing our intake in the coming academic year to include; children at Key Stage One to increase our primary provision as well as admitting girls. So we are looking to appoint versatile, resilient and committed Teaching Assistants, who can adapt their practice where ever necessary to support across all key stages. You will contribute to the effective implementation of individual programmes by supporting the teaching and learning experiences, which enhance the learning and development of young people.

You will assist senior staff by contributing to the development of care and learning plans and contribute to the preparation of reports and update daily records and logs.
