The role

I am seeking a passionate Learning Support Assistant looking to work in a pupil referral unit based in Islington. This unit covers young people from primary all the way to year 11 who are all at risk of not achieving their full potential. To overcome this, the school have adopted a ‘learning to succeed’ motto that is imbedded into everything they do.
