SEN Learning Support Assistant required for 12th April 2021
Fixed Term Contract for 1 Year initially - 24.25 hours per week
Pay: Grade 5 - £9.81 per hour – pay award pending
We have a vacancy for a SEN Learning Support Assistant to work with several pupils that have either an EHCP or High Needs Funding. Previous SEN experience, ideally in autism or communication and interaction needs, is desirable but not essential.
The post is part time, working 8.45am to 3.00pm each day (8.45am to 12noon on Fridays) during term time only, although some flexibility to support school events and the current staggered Covid arrangements will be required.
The post holder will work under the direction of the class teacher and SENDCo to support specific pupils in their learning.
We are looking for someone who can be flexible and adaptable, works well in team situations but can also be independent. The ideal candidate will have a sense of fun and an optimistic outlook and can engage with all of our pupils.
