Pucklechurch Primary is a wonderful village school between Bristol and Bath. We are looking for a SEN Teaching Assistant to join our energetic, enthusiastic teaching team as soon as possible.
The post concerns a pupil in year 4 with an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP).
We are looking for someone who has experience supporting children with SEN, but specifically someone who can demonstrate patience, compassion and the ability to provide a consistently nurturing presence. You will be supporting the child in the class throughout the day with specific targets and inclusion in the mainstream class routines. Ideally, you will have experience of supporting children with SEMH barriers to learning, for example Thrive training, Emotional Literacy Support Assistant training or Zones of Regulation training. A good understanding of safeguarding practice is also required for this post.
We would encourage potential applicants to visit our school website for further information and visits to the school are encouraged.
The closing date for applications is Friday 13th November 2020.
If you have the experience and skills needed to support this child, then we would really like to meet you.
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the safety and welfare of children and young people. All staff and volunteers are expected to share this commitment and all appointments will be subject to appropriate vetting, including an enhanced DBS disclosure check.
