Hollymount Primary School is looking for a caring and proactive LSA to support a child with dyslexia and speech and language needs who is currently in Y5. The role will involve supporting the pupil 1:1 in class and liaising with parents and other professionals.
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 dyslexia and speech and language needs 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. An application pack is also available on the school website.
