Are you enthusiastic, creative and committed to helping children be the best people they can be? Do you have extensive experience of offering SEN support in a school environment? Do you have the patience of a saint, the ability to be as flexible as an elastic band and the desire to actively seek the lighter side of life? Are you looking to become a member of a child-centred team within a supportive local community? If so, we could be the team for you!
We are seeking to appoint an experienced, highly motivated, caring, positive and enthusiastic Teaching Assistant to join our team working on a 1:1 basis with a child in our school. The position will involve working with the child on a bespoke curriculum, suited to their individual needs within the whole class setting. Prior experience of working in a support role within a primary school is essential.
The ideal candidate will have excellent interpersonal skills, the ability to communicate professionally and a good understanding of supporting children with ASD and social and emotional barriers to learning. If you like to see the lighter side of life, laugh out loud and get stuck in with anything ranging from shaving foam pictures to playing in the woods, then we have lots to offer you!
