Cuckmere House, based in Seaford, is part of the SABDEN Multi AcademyTrust and is an 'Outstanding' all-boys SEMH Special school. We are  passionate about creating a safe and supportive learning environment that fosters respect for others, develops resilience, promotes high expectations and prepares young males for successful futures.

The main responsibility of the post will be to support teachers in the delivery of the curriculum, both by directly working with pupils and assisting in preparation of resources. We have a number of Teaching Assistant  posts available in our primary and secondary departments and applicants should be innovative, enthusiastic, flexible, have an interest and knowledge of child development and an understanding of child protection procedures. They will act as a role model for our pupils and will model expected behaviours at all times.  Applicants should be able to demonstrate a sensitive and empathic approach to working with young males.

If successful, you will become part of a very committed and hardworking team. While some experience of working with vulnerable young people is preferable it is not essential.  We will provide you with high quality training and support.
