TEACHING ASSISTANT 1:1 (22.5 hours per week) 39 weeks, to include 5 days training

Fixed Term Contract whilst child remains at the Academy.

Pay Scale TA1 LEAD New SCP point 3 (£18562) FTE.

Actual Salary £9874 per year

We wish to appoint a motivated and committed Teaching Assistant to work within our High Needs Support Team, initially within Year 1, starting as soon as possible.

The role will mainly be to support a child with autistic traits and some personal care needs. It will also involve supervising groups of pupils, particularly at lunchtimes.

We are a highly motivated and successful team, eager to find someone who wants to achieve the highest standards in terms of learning opportunities and progress for all children.

The successful applicant will be flexible, show initiative and be able to adapt to the needs of individuals and groups of children. They will also be confident, have excellent communication skills and able to be fair and consistent in line with the school behaviour policy. They will have a good knowledge of the KS1 curriculum.

Knowledge about the needs associated with Autism would be an advantage. You will work as part of a team to meet the EHCP targets, supporting toileting needs, enabling them to be fully engaged within learning.  This role is based upon the child’s needs whilst at our school and therefore will be a fixed term contract.

We can offer the chance to work in a very well-resourced school with highly motivated children that are eager to learn. We will work with the newly appointed Teaching Assistant to support them in helping us to sustain and improve the formally recognised outstanding quality of education that we provide.

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions we do not expect to be able to accommodate pre-application visits (unless government guidelines change) but we would be very happy to arrange an initial conversation to answer any questions you may have in advance of making an application. Also at this time we envisage that the assessment process for the role will be carried out remotely.
