The Rowans is an Alternative Provision Academy, under the Inspiring Change Multi-Academy Trust, which provides an exciting and highly personalised holistic education for 11-16 year olds with challenging social, emotional or mental health needs.

Teachers teach small classes supported by a teaching assistant.  Some pupils may have additional learning needs and some are undergoing statutory assessment. 

We are looking to appoint a teaching assistant with an understanding of the needs of pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties and who can inspire and encourage pupils to get the best learning experience at The Rowans.  We are particularly looking for a candidate with an interest in supporting across a range of curriculum areas.
