Stifford Clays Primary School is looking to recruit a talented individual to help us establish and shape our brand new Autistic Spectrum Disorder Resource Base funded directly by the Local Authority to eventually accommodate ten children. The successful candidate will have a passion for working with young children and for assisting them to overcome their personal or behavioural issues which are often a barrier to pupils achieving their full potential. Applicants with experience of working with pupils who have ASD is desirable but support will be given by the ASD Base Manager and on-the-job training provided. As a member of staff, you will be valued and supported; in return, we are looking for commitment, drive and enthusiasm.


Why Stifford Clays Primary School?

We are a community-focused school for 2 to 11 year olds, located centrally in the Stifford Clays ward of Thurrock. The original infant and junior schools were built in 1954 and were one form of entry. The school has grown hugely to accommodate 90 children in each year group.

Stifford Clays Primary School is an extremely happy and positive school.  We are an Ofsted ‘good’ school (2016 full inspection; 2019 Section 8 inspection) where “Staff and pupils work as a team with a ‘can-do’ attitude.” and “In lessons, most pupils try hard and enjoy learning. They are keen to do well.” (Ofsted 2019).
