The Successful Candidate
Little Mead Primary Academy is looking to appoint a creative, nurturing and flexible individual to join our team as a SEN Teaching Assistant.
This new role has been created to support the personal, social and emotional development of a small group within the class. The successful applicant will run small interventions whilst liaising with the class teacher regarding individual pupils.
Your daily routine will involve:
- Supporting the Early Years phase over lunchtime, encouraging healthy eating and positive relationships through positive play.
- Working 1-to-1 with identified children, enabling them to access all areas of the curriculum and work towards developmental milestones.
- Carrying out intimate care as necessary.
- Working alongside parents and a range of professionals on a regular basis to implement programmes of intervention.
While this role is not specifically a teaching post, there will be elements of supporting children with their work as provided by their teacher. Accordingly, there is no requirement for a teaching and learning qualification, but within the education or social care sectors is desirable. Please see the person specification for full expectations of the successful applicant.
Little Mead Primary Academy is part of the Endeavour Academy Trust, which is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
