These are temporary posts that will end when the funding ceases or the child leaves the school.
We require a dedicated Teaching Assistant to provide care and support for a child joining our Reception class in September. This rewarding role will suit a SEN Teaching Assistant who has had experience of working with children with special needs on a 1:1 basis, particularly in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
The successful candidate will be sensitive to the needs of this child who has developmental delay in language and communication skills, motor skills, self-help skills, play and learning. You will be able to work independently under the direction of the class teacher and Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator.
An experience of using Makaton, and an understanding of the learning profile of a child with Downs Syndrome, would be desirable but not essential.
Support is required in all curriculum areas to build towards the child’s EHCP targets and outcomes. Work with the child will focus on key areas such as Communication, Speech and Language development, physical activities to help gross and fine motor skills, and other Cognition and Learning activities.
Applicants must be flexible, supportive, and able to use their own initiative and liaise closely with other staff. You will be able to work independently, and be a team player.
This is a temporary contract, dependent on funding and the child remaining at this school.
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.
