We are excited to be able to advertise for the position of 1:1 Teaching Assistant to provide support for a pupil diagnosed with ASC. The position is to support a child in Year 2, who requires 1:1 support and who has autism and communication needs. The child does not display any challenging behaviour.

We are looking for someone who can be proactive in finding different ways to build a good working relationship. The child needs support to apply himself to academic activities and requires prompts and interventions to help him with communication and following instructions.

We have high expectations for all our children and we are keen to ensure that individuals’ needs are met.

Interested candidates are encouraged to contact the school if they would like further details regarding the post.
