We require an enthusiastic Learning Support Assistant to work with Reception class in the Primary phase of our thriving, oversubscribed and outstanding all-through school. The school’s aim is “Excellence for All” and the governors wish to appoint candidates of significant ability and enthusiasm, aware of and stimulated by the challenges and potential of a successful multi-ethnic coeducational school.


Dunraven Educational Trust (DET) was established in 2016. DET is a trust committed to one overarching aim: excellence for and from everyone. This is an expectation for both the children and adults in a school community. It is achieved in a variety of ways according to the context of each school but within the clear framework established by the Trust.

We want an educational experience which provides excellence for - and expects it from - everyone. We know that this is best achieved in a school where:

  • the offer is broad, balanced, inclusive, enriching and effective in meeting the needs of young people;
  • staff and students are supported and challenged to be the best versions of themselves;
  • relationships are positive, well established and healthy;
  • practice is based on evidence and underpinned by the notion that ‘we can always do better’.

We are clear that this supports the development of children and young people (and adults) who are: resilient, courteous, optimistic, hardworking, self-disciplined, enthusiastic and creative


Dunraven School is an all-through school in South London and has recently been judged as ‘Good’ with Outstanding features in the 2023 Ofsted inspection. This means we have children from Reception to Year 13.

We serve our local community and celebrate our cultural diversity. Dunraven School’s results are strong, remaining above national averages and representing positive ‘value-added’. Recognition of its marked progress has been significant and its journey as a school is important to us.
