We are a small rural main stream school with a mixture of separate and mixed year groups.  Due to the high level of support needed across years 3 & 4, we are running a nurture group for children with a range of needs.   We are looking for an experienced HLTA, to plan for, teach and support this vulnerable group.

  • Ideally a good understanding of phonetical & language development.
  • Understanding of various needs including ASD, ADHD, MLD, FAS, SEMH etc.

  • The ideal candidate would have patience, compassion, kindness, versatility & flexibility.
  • The ability to work as part of a team, to be able to maximise the support of a TA.

This great chance to join our fantastic team at Eythorne Elvington, who are hardworking, supportive and nurturing of pupils and staff alike, as well as to develop and shape nurture provision for a lovely, willing group of between 6 and 12 children.  This good quality provision will have a significant impact on improving the outcome for these pupils with SEND and therefore be incredibly rewarding for someone dedicated to the role.
