Herefordshire Pupil Referral Service (HPRS) provides education to pupils unable to attend mainstream school for various reasons. The service is currently split over two sites located within Hereford – St David’s Centre (KS4) and The Aconbury Centre (KS3).

HPRS provides a safe, secure and welcoming learning environment in which young people can grow as responsible, independent and self-confident learners. We are on an exciting journey of school improvement and have made rapid and significant improvements of which we are all very proud.

The service benefits from a supportive Management Committee, an effective Senior Leadership Team and a dynamic team of experienced, committed staff.

We are now looking to recruit an enthusiastic and committed Learning Support Assistant to contribute to the vision for the service and support our pupils in a range of subjects, including English and Mathematics, as well as being able to offer pastoral care.


You will be joining a team which works hard to create a positive and caring community that puts children at the heart of everything we do.


Candidates will need to be patient and understanding of difficulties that can be experienced by our pupils and have excellent communication skills. Candidates will also need to:

  • Support the education, care and welfare of pupils, under the direction of the Headteacher and other designated teachers.

  • Support or deliver education sessions to small groups or on a one-to-one basis at a variety of locations.

  • Help pupils overcome barriers to learning

  • Improve pupil’s confidence, motivation, social skills and relationships, enabling them to face new and challenging situations.

  • Improve pupil’s attendance and punctuality

  • Work on your own initiative

  • Be a good timekeeper, flexible, accommodating and a team player
