Redden Court School, a place where “Pupils are enthusiastic about coming to school to learn.” (OFSTED SEPTEMBER 2016)

Would you like to move your career forward in a friendly environment with eager students and support from an experienced leadership team, in one of the best mixed comprehensive schools for 11-16 in our Local Authority.  We are oversubscribed, serve Harold Wood well and we are only twenty minutes from the heart of London.

Our school mantra is "Committed to Success for All."  That includes our staff and we want the very best for our students. OFSTED said we “have created an inclusive community where pupils and staff relate well to each other. The school is focused on working with families to raise aspirations for pupils.” 

The title Student Development Assistant highlights the need for students to become independent learners where appropriate. We believe this is a positive move from a traditional Learning Support Assistant role.

If you have a positive approach, you are resilient and can enhance our team to support our young adults in overcoming barriers to their learning in order for them to achieve their full potential, we would like to talk to you. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a forward thinking school. This position would be suitable for someone with recent experience with working with young people or has a passion for supporting young people with Special Educational Needs. The ability to speak a second language, or to use sign language would be advantageous.


The successful candidate will be committed to our vision, our values and ethos, and have the interpersonal skills and ability to work with staff and students to achieve all they can.  If you would like to speak to the Head of Inclusion, Mrs J Tyldesley, please feel free to telephone the school.


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff to share this commitment.  We require the successful candidate to undertake an enhanced criminal records check via the Disclosure and Barring Service.

We welcome enquiries from everyone and value diversity in our workforce. Applications are welcome from all sections of the community regardless of gender, gender identity, ethnic origin, disability, age or sexual orientation.


Closing Date: Monday 1st November 2021 - 12 pm.

Interview Date: Monday 8th November 2021.

References from 2 previous employers will be sought prior to interview.
