Graded as Ofsted Good in September 2022 “The Market Weighton School is on the edge of the town, but for many it is in the heart of the community. It is a caring school that has values of ‘respect, honesty, compassion, resilience, industry and courage’. Our inspired pupils are happy to demonstrate these qualities because they understand their importance”. We are a small school, proud of our traditional rural heritage, yet ambitious for the future of all our students. Our size is a real strength as it enables students and their families to work closely with the teaching and support staff at the school, building positive working relationships. We believe that students achieve best in a supportive and positive environment – and that is what you will find in our school.

Due to our expanding Enhanced Resource Provision for students on the autistic spectrum, we require a Teaching Assistant to support students with Special Educational Needs. Experience of working with students with Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, and/or, physical disabilities is preferred, however TMWS would consider an apprenticeship for any candidates without qualifications who have an enthusiasm to support young people and undertake any necessary training.

As a school with a large number of students with additional needs we can offer opportunities for CPD and career progression at all levels within our dedicated team of teaching assistants.

TMWS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults, and expects all staff to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). As part of our due diligence TMWS will carry out an online search on the shortlisted candidates.
