We are seeking to appoint a Learning Support Assistant to join our hard working and supportive team to provide 1:1 support for a child with Special Educational Needs.

Your role will require you to support the child's learning in all areas of the curriculum. Previous experience of working with children as a 1:1 would be an advantage, especially in relation to cognition and learning; an ability to manipulate planning from the classteacher to make it age appropriate and a knowledge of early phonics would also be of benefit, but all required training will be provided.

The post may also require you to undertake other general teaching assistant duties within Key Stage Two.

This post is linked to a child and funding is reviewed annually.

This post is supporting the child full time, although we would consider a part time job share for the right candidates, including a 30 minute lunch break.

Further information about the school is available from our website, or to see for yourself everything that St John’s has to offer please come and visit the school to see first-hand. Please contact the school office to arrange a mutually convenient time.

St John's is committed to the safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment. St John's is an equal opportunities employer

Any offer of employment for this post will be subject to satisfactory references and an enhanced DBS check.
