We are looking for two fantastic teaching assistants to take on the role of supporting specific children with SEND (but sometimes also working with small groups) in the mornings in one of the nursery classes in our school.
2 SEND 1 to 1 Teaching Assistants, Level 2 - required for the mornings in our nursery
Temporary posts on a 1:1 named contract
Salary: LG band 3 points 11-14: £17,681-£18,672 pro-rata
For both posts, we would like someone fantastic to take on the role of supporting a child with SEND (and sometimes working with small groups) in the mornings in one of the nursery classes in our Infant and Nursery School. There may be an opportunity to work some afternoons in this role, but this has not yet been confirmed.
What are we looking for?
These posts are ideal for someone who is creative and enjoys problem-solving, who is full of good humour and who is - above all - keen to explore a very rewarding role as part of our friendly and supportive whole school team.
You will need to have successful experience in working with young children with additional and complex needs.
What can we offer? A very happy school where you'll have the chance to work with skilled, positive and supportive colleagues and with children and families from a rich and vibrant community at the heart of Leicester's West End.
This is what the children say:
"Our school is exciting... Learning here is really fun because you get better and better at it. Being at our school feels good – you get to do all sorts of things. The building is colourful and cool."
"If you need help with something that you can’t do, just ask someone 'can you please help me?' and they’ll help you straight away so you can say thank you... However you feel, there will be someone to help you."
If you’d like to know more about us and about this role - we’d love you to get in touch. Visits to the school are very welcome and you may find it helpful to talk to someone in the school office about the pro rata salary or to clarify any questions about acceptable referees.
Please telephone the school to make an appointment and do have a look at the school website to get an idea of how lovely our school is!
Closing date: Monday 25th February 2019 at 12.30pm
