This is an exciting time to be joining Newcastle Academy, as we continue to develop our SEND provision. We need an enthusiastic Behaviour Support Practitioner who can support our students and teaching staff on our journey of improvement with a focus on behaviour.

Teaching assistants provide the right support in class when pupils need it.” The successful applicant will be able to support our students in the classroom and in smaller groups. The role will also include providing confidential pastoral support and liaising with external partner agencies, as well as working closely with parents, so good relationship, listening and communication skills are essential.
