Our values and ethos of ‘together we can’ are embedded in the positive energy we create and receive in those who learn and work here. Joining our team is about understanding the importance of nurturing, aiming high with the aspirations and dreams of our children, and providing an engaging curriculum that both promotes success and creates happy memories.


As an academy within the Coast and Vale Learning Trust we are working closely with our sister school Newby & Scalby Primary as we share learning and build a primary hub that our coastal area can be proud of. With access to the Teaching Alliance, based at Scalby School, we continue to rightly place staff development, training and resources at the heart of our journey, and provide you with the support, tools and guidance needed.




We are looking to appoint a General Teaching Assistant to support of our students with further and additional needs. In this role you will assist in the planning and development of learning activites with the SENCO, inclusion team and teacher, to support the learning and development of our pupils with additional needs.


You will have experience working with children in an education setting, with a good understanding of child development and learning. The ideal candidate will have experience supporting children with social, emotional and mental health needs, including identifying and diversifying for individual needs, and can demonstrate good written and verbal skills, which will allow you to build and develop relationships and mould well into our supportive and positive team.

The Trust


Coast and Vale Learning Trust is a growing family of schools located on the beautiful Yorkshire Coast. The Trust was founded by Scalby Secondary School but has grown over the last few years to include Newby and Scalby Primary School, Friarage Primary School and the Scarborough University Technical College (SUTC) in Scarborough and Lady Lumley’s Secondary School in Pickering. Our ambition is to continue to welcome new schools into our Trust where we can add capacity, resources, improvement and make sure all our young people have access to the very best education.


The aim of the trust is to serve all the education community along the North Yorkshire Coast and down the Vale of Pickering. We are committed to supporting all schools in becoming great schools, whether they are part of Coast and Vale Learning Trust or not. The learners of our community deserve the best education regardless of their background or location.


Choosing where to work and who to work for is one of the vitally important decisions in life.  In choosing to work for Coast and Vale Learning Trust you would be joining a team of colleagues dedicated to transforming the lives of 3000 children and young people.
