Thank you for your interest in this vacancy at Parbold Douglas Church of England Academy. We are a happy, inclusive school, driven by our vision for a society transformed by a generation of young people who are passionate about justice and love.

The main responsibility of this role is to provide one-to-one support and care to a pupil in Key Stage 1 with special education needs. The postholder will perform a key role in leading the child’s learning and development in all areas, supporting them to make progress towards the objectives set out in their education, health and care plan (EHCP). With the support of the wider school team, the postholder will support the child to remain regulated and safe throughout the school day. We have forged strong relationships with external specialists and professionals who have built a good understanding of the child’s needs and how best to meet them – the postholder will benefit from access to this support and knowledge. It is important that the postholder is able to quickly build strong relationships with colleagues and the child’s parents to ensurethat a team approach is taken to providing the best possible provision and support for the child.

This is a challenging, physically demanding but incredibly rewarding position. We are looking for somebody who is deeply caring, patient, calm, reflective and willing to learn. We are looking for somebody who is understanding and empathetic, and will be devoted to supporting the child to succeed each day.

Punctuality, and a proven commitment to excellent attendance at work, are essential to this post.

The vacancy is open to all. Guidance and support will be provided to the right person. Our priority is to find somebody who will approach the role with the composure, commitment, energy, care, positivity, patience and devotion that we are looking for.
