Learning Support Assistant
Meath School, Ottershaw, Nr Woking, Surrey
Annual Salary: £15,000 (working term time plus one week during school closure period)
Full-Time, Fixed Term Contract to 24 July 2019 – possibility of extension and permanent opportunities
For a child with speech, language and communication difficulties, school can be a difficult place. At Meath special school, we work with children aged 5 to 11 to recognise these needs and provide therapy and education to meet them. Our multi-disciplinary teams aim to give them the same opportunities as other children, and turn their frustration to confidence.
You will provide much needed classroom and teaching support, assisting in all educational activities involving communication, curriculum, social skills, and behaviour management. You’ll also make valuable contributions to planning, and to the assessment of pupil progress.
This is a role that requires the ability to communicate effectively with children and families as well as your colleagues. You will already have experience of working with primary pupils in a school setting, with experience of SEN. You’ll also need basic literacy, numeracy and ICT skills. Above all your flexible, positive attitude will shine through as will your desire to develop our outstanding school.
We will give you lots of training and support – don’t worry!
