1: 1 TA job advert:

We are a small school with a big heart in beautiful Biddenden located between Ashford and Tenterden.

This role is to provide personalised support for an individual pupil for 25 hours per week; this will be on a one to one basis as well as working within a small group. This position is initially for one year due to the annual renewal required for higher needs funding from the Local Authority but it could be longer.

The ideal candidate should have experience of working with Key Stage 2 children.  Knowledge of supporting SEN children is essential.  The post will involve supporting a child in their learning, both inside and outside of the classroom.  You will be joining a hard working, friendly and supportive team of colleagues dedicated to improving the outcomes for the children in our school. 

Are you:

  • passionate about securing positive outcomes for children?
  • Excellent at developing nurturing relationships with children?
  • highly motivated, organised and flexible in the way you work to best meet children's needs?
  • an effective communicator, highly skilled in building positive relationships with children, parents and professionals?

Then you sound like the perfect addition to our friendly team!

We can offer you a friendly village school in beautiful surroundings with children who are delightful, warm and who behave extremely well. We believe strongly in developing all members of our team through CPD and we work closely with schools within the Tenterden Rural Alliance. We also have excellent relationships with our parents and extra- curricular opportunities are important to our children. We can offer you a biscuit barrel that is full (most of the time!), support and children who are caring, friendly and learn well.

Interested? Visits to the school are essential as it gives you the chance to meet the most important people – the children.

Please call the school office to make an appointment to see either the Headteacher. We are looking forward to meeting you!
