Job summary

We are seeking to appoint a calm, resilient, creative and highly motivated practitioner to support provision for an identified pupil with additional needs at Great Torrington Primary School. The role will involve supporting a bright and lively Y3 child, who exhibits some challenging behaviours, with her social and emotional development during unstructured times as well as providing focussed support with learning behaviour in class and implementing specific learning programmes to help fulfil her potential. The successful candidate will require boundless energy and literacy and numeracy skills which are sufficiently developed to support the child’s learning throughout KS2. An interest in Art and Science would be a particular advantage as these are specific areas of interest to her. A calm and patient nature and a sense of fun are also essential requirements for the post.

A willingness to undertake specialist training will be a distinct advantage. Applicants will need to be confident, resilient, flexible, organised and able to use their own initiative.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
