Our vision is to deliver high quality, rich and engaging education for all our learners and we believe that all of our staff have a vital part to play in achieving that goal. We genuinely seek to live our values of Excellence, Belonging, Opportunity and Respect, which underpin all we do, and we believe that all staff in our school communities have a vital part to play in achieving our goals.

About the role

Robert Wilkinson Primary Academy has the opportunity to recruit a SEN Teaching Assistant to work with a pupil who is deaf and using BSL to communicate.

As a Teaching Assistant you will be passionate about teaching and learning and believe in developing the true potential of all children. You will have a calm and positive disposition, the ability to break down activities into small step teaching and will nurture, inspire, challenge and motivate pupils. You will be confident in using sign language across the whole curriculum to allow the child to engage in the whole class teaching and learning.

Job requirements

We wish to recruit a Teaching Assistant who will work on a one to one basis with a child who uses BSL to communicate.

You will be a qualified BSL practitioner to a minimum level 2 and be willing to undergo further training to become level 3 qualified.

Within this role you will also be working with and alongside a wide range of different professions all with the common goal of ensuring the best care and education is given to our children.

Good, clear and effective communication will play a key role in this position, you will need to work with and alongside the child, their family and other members of staff within the school.

You will have positive behaviour management skills, be flexible and able to work on your own initiative.

Experience of working with children who use BSL would be an advantage, ideally, but not necessarily in an educational setting.

Working with us

All new starters with the Trust receive a thorough induction programme, followed by a programme of training which is essential to the role. But it doesn’t stop there, all staff receive development on an ongoing basis and we encourage the learning of new skills should you wish to develop your career with the Trust further.
