Following an internal promotion, the Learning Academy Partnership has an exciting opportunity for a Learning Support Assistant (LSA) / Mealtime Assistant (MTA) to join our School Trust. We are looking for someone who is passionate about our mission to ensure that every child has the right to live life to the full, no matter what their starting point.

All Saint's Thurlestone C of E Academy is a rapidly growing small church school nestled in the breath-taking village of Thurlestone, overlooking the sea. We are an inclusive school with 5 mixed age classes and a Nursery. Through our broad and balanced curriculum, we aim to foster a love of learning in our children which encompasses our beautiful surroundings whilst looking outwards to the wider world.

Through working together as a Hub with our sister schools in the South Hams, and as part of our wider School Trust, both our children and staff benefit from opportunities sometimes only afforded to large schools, such as extra-curricular activities and training. The beautiful South Hams has thriving communities and supportive families. This is a unique opportunity for the successful candidate to help shape the future of education for our children and wider community.

Our School Trust is underpinned by our four core beliefs; we are stronger together, a sense of belonging; removing barriers and realising the possible. This means that by working collectively, we can achieve our absolute best to ensure that children, especially the most vulnerable, can flourish.

We are looking for people who:
- Have high expectations and are passionate about working with children to meet their needs;
- Can work flexibly and respond to the needs of the children;
- Put the children first in all that they do;
- Are passionate about supporting the needs of children with special educational needs;
- Can create a high-quality, stimulating, interactive and creative learning environment;
- Can work effectively within our hardworking, talented and friendly Trust;
- Can support and embrace the Christian ethos of our school;
- Have a clear understanding of safeguarding procedures and a strong desire to keep children safe.

We can offer you:
- The opportunity to make a profound difference to children's lives;
- The chance to work as part of a collective in a values-led School Trust, a single organisation;
- A culture that takes work life balance extremely seriously for all its colleagues;
- An opportunity to work alongside exceptional teachers, practitioners and professionals who are passionate about ensuring that every child becomes the best they can be;
- Opportunities to develop your career with our growing School Trust through our excellent development practice;
- A strong, proactive wellbeing network across the School Trust;
- Access to a 24-hour Employee Assistance Programme;
- Trust benefit schemes.

All our schools are each at the centre of their local communities and celebrate their individuality and distinctiveness. A core feature in how we work as a School Trust is our collective approach in delivering an exceptional education for all children. We do this through working very closely together in mutual support and challenge to empower excellence for our children, families and the communities that we serve.
In short, our ethos is one of working together to Empower, Excel, Together.

Visits to the Academy are recommended and welcomed. Please contact the Academy to arrange an appointment.

The Learning Academy Partnership is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
