Outwood Academy Portland places students at the centre of everything it does, with a focus on creating a culture of success, a positive climate for learning, and increased student attainment, achievement and social and emotional development. Our staff are dedicated to securing the best possible outcomes for every student and are enormously proud of Ofsted’s Outstanding rating awarded in 2014. The hard work of both students and staff culminated in student progress placing the academy well within the top 5% of schools nationally and in 2016 88% of our students achieved A*-C grades including English and Maths placing us in the top 10 schools nationally on pupil progress.
We wish to appoint a teaching assistant to join our existing Inclusion team.
