Compass School is the only provision in Southampton providing education and behavioural support for Key Stage 1 – 4 pupils permanently excluded or at risk of permanent exclusion from mainstream school. The philosophy of ‘Nurture’ is central to the curriculum and addresses disrupted or distorted attachment apparent in many pupils. Compass School was graded as a ‘good provider’ by Ofsted in October 2017.

We are looking to recruit enthusiastic Teaching Assistants to join our friendly and dedicated team.
This job is a big challenge, but it’s also an inspiring opportunity to work with children who require extra support to realise their ambitions.
Do you have a desire for achieving the best possible outcomes for excluded learners and those with complex needs? Do you have an established track record of delivering excellence?
You will need passion, resilience, highly developed interpersonal skills and high expectations of all. We believe our children deserve the very best.
Can you deliver?
