As an Intervention TA, you would be working with individual and small groups of children to provide additional support with reading, writing and mathematics, as well as supporting their social, emotional and mental needs. A knowledge of intervention programmes is an advantage, but not essential.

We want those who can bring motivation, energy and excellent communication skills to the role.  If you are looking for a challenge and the opportunity to be part of a dynamic team then we would love to hear from you.

Initially this role is mornings only - 8.45am – 12.30pm (18.75 hours per week), but it is likely to increase. This is a term time only position on a pro rata'd salary on KR3 - therefore the annual salary will be approximately £8000 per year (gross)
