Hollymount Primary School is looking for a caring and proactive LSA to support a child with Down’s Syndrome who will be in Year 1 in September. The role will involve supporting the pupil 1:1 in class and across some break times.
The ideal candidate will work collaboratively as part of a close-knit and dedicated team. He/she will need to be able to work well with others and liaise closely with the class teacher, the school Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) and any other outside agencies as needed. He/she will need to have good literacy and numeracy skills as we have high expectations and standards in our school with outcomes significantly higher than those nationally.
Previous experience of supporting children with Down’s Syndrome in a 1:1 role would be desirable but more importantly a willingness to learn and develop skills in this area would be essential.
Visits to the school are welcomed. Please contact the school office on 020 - 8946 - 0454
Closing date: 16th August 2019
