We are looking for a Teaching Assistant starting as soon as possible This could be a full or part time post during term time only.  The hours worked will depend on the candidate's availability and the channging needs of the child requiring support.There is also the possiblity that these hours could change if the child is able to manage more time in school.

We have two positions available  supporting children diagnosed with ASD in Year 3 and Year 4, helping them to access their education and learning. This will include support with appropriate behaviour, socialisation and basic literacy and numeracy skills. Both children can present challenging behaviour so an ideal candidate would have some experience working with children on the Autistic spectrum.

Initially this would be a temporary position as funding for this role comes with the individual child. However, if the child remains in the school then the position will be extended for as long as the funding remains in place.

A successful candidate would join a team of highly motivated and excellent practitioners. Experience and qualification is preferred. However we are willing to consider candidates looking for a new employment route, this may be particularly suitable for parents wishing to return to the workplace or considering a change of career.

Opportunities for further training and development are encouraged. The school will also provide you with relevant support to help meet each child's needs

Please contact Pete Talbot, the Headteacher, for further details. Visits to the school are actively encouraged.
