Advert

We are looking for a dedicated, flexible team player to join us at Herne Bay Junior School as a Learning Support Assistant to provide 1:1 support for a Key Stage 2 pupil.  

You will be joining a highly supportive and hardworking team. The person appointed needs to have good communication skills and be self-motivated to be able to use their own initiative to deliver 1:1 support as needed. Training for specific interventions will be given.

The position will involve working with a pupil with specific learning and behaviour needs on a one to one basis and at times within small groups. The role will be based in and out of the classroom and will involve implementing programmes of support designed specifically to meet the pupil’s needs.   

Our ideal candidate will be an experienced SEN Learning Support Assistant, who has experience and associated training to support a child with complex behaviour needs and cognitive difficulties related to literacy and numeracy.

You need to have experience of working in KS1/KS2 and be able to demonstrate previous success in working with special needs pupils in an educational setting.  Most importantly you will be able to relate well to young children.  The ideal candidate should also have experience of liaising closely with the class teacher, the SENCO, other support staff and the child’s family.

The post is fixed term, as it is dependent upon the named pupil’s continued attendance at this school. 

We strongly recommend that you visit the school prior to application where our Deputy Headteacher, Lead for Inclusion, will offer a tour alongside sharing appropriate and relevant information about the role.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An Enhanced DBS check will be sought from the successful candidate.
