PART TIME - JOB SHARE - 8.30 to 3.30 two days per week.  Start date Term 4 2019

Want to join a school where you feel valued and happy? Do you enjoy providing children with the right support? Want to be part of a thriving team in a job you won't want to leave? 

We are looking for a dynamic member of staff to join our very talented team of SEND Teaching Assistants.  The role involves working to facilitate the provision for a Y5 child with Down Syndrome with some additional language difficulties. 

The child's provision is already very carefully mapped out and there are opportunities to work with some experienced members of staff to 'learn the ropes'!  You would work closely with the SENCo and class teacher to include the child in whole class activities where possible and will have some specific interventions to run on a 1:1 basis. 

Are you:

  • passionate about doing the best for children with special educational needs?
  • highly motivated, organised and flexible in the way you work?
  • skilled in building positive relationships with children, parents and professionals?
  • able to sign using Signalong, Makaton or BSL or committed to developing this skill?

Then you sound perfect for us!

We can offer you an outstanding school filled with highly skilled and forward thinking teachers. Our children share our passion and enthusiasm for learning and are well behaved and achieve well.  We have excellent relationships with our families and other professionals and really value the development of our staff.

Please do contact our friendly school office should you wish to arrange a visit or speak with the SENCo about this role. 

Please be advised that this role is linked directly to the child's individual provision and subject to the continued successful application of High Needs Funding; it is therefore a fixed term contract until the child leaves at the end of Year 6 - August 2020.

We take safeguarding our children extremely seriously and so applicatnts to this role will be subject to the usual rigerous DBS and reference checks.
