  • Start Date:1st September 2022

At Crockenhill Primary School our aim is to provide each and every child in our care with the opportunites to become the very best version of themselves within a caring and nurturing environment which allows us all to learn from each other;  our mistakes and our successes. 

We are looking for that special someone to join our team and enhance our provision, to provide additional support within the classroom during the morning, and to organise and run a nurturing group each afternoon, supported by a second member of support staff.  You will have the acumen to organise and deliver a topic based approach, supporting the individual needs of approximately 5 children from a range of classes, currently in KS1.

You will be able to:

  • Follow SENco, class teacher and outside agency reports and advice
  • Identify and remove the barriers to learning that prevent individuals from reaching their full potential
  • Develop positive relationships with our pupils and outside agencies where appropriate, to provide a wider network for our pupils
  • Promote inclusion
  • Develop a holistic approach to children's education, where their emotional and social growth and academic achievement are all equally valued

You will have a proven track record of working with young people, including those who may have challenging behaviour, and a desire to do something worthwhile for children, with the ability to have insight to their needs.  You will be able to work well as part of the team, but also the ability to have the initiative to work independently with imagination, conscientiousness and fun.

If you think this is a role you could see yourself doing, we would be delighted to hear from you, and warmly welcome visits to the school.
