What skills and experience we're looking for

Our OFSTED rated ‘Good’ school is looking for a skilled 1:1 Learning Support Assistant to work with two children with EHCP’s. One child in Year 4 (ASD) and one child in Key Stage 2 (SEMH). It would be beneficial if candidates could demonstrate their knowledge of ASD, sensory difficulties and emotional regulation.

We would like to hear from you if you are:

  • an outstanding practitioner
  • have experience of working with children with complex needs
  • have a knowledge of how to support a pupil’s emotional needs as well as their academic development
  • are able to demonstrate a good use of initiative and responsibility to support pupils’ learning
  • are able to take on others ideas

Our curriculum is set up to explore learning through a hands-on approach that requires skilled professionals to have the ability to promote what is being seen as well as knowing the curriculum well enough to make connections with other areas of the curriculum at the same time; i.e. development of grammar through an investigation or the use of speech. Candidates need to also recognise the small steps that a child needs to take and how this is recorded as part of their individual Learning Plan. This skilled role will enable a child to unlock their learning and become confident learners – a privileged position indeed.

What the school offers its staff

The staff and pupils are dedicated to getting the best out of every experience and through our nurturing and respectful ethos, pupils grow and develop in to active and interested learners.

The school is committed to equal opportunities and safer recruitment practice. Pre-employment checks will be undertaken before any post is confirmed. This post is subject to enhanced disclosure and barring service checks. The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
