Outreach Teaching Assistant

Salary: £26,421 - £28,770 Annual FTE

Hours: 33.5 hours Per week for 39 weeks a year

We are an inclusive mainstream setting catering for children and young people with a wide range of abilities. Here at The Macclesfield Academy, we recognise that provision for students with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) is the responsibility of all members of staff and that every teacher is a teacher of SEND. As an inclusive community we have the highest expectations for all our students irrespective of their starting point, and we strive to ensure that quality first teaching is tailored to meet the needs of all.

We are looking to recruit an Outreach Teaching Assistant, who will work under the direction of the SENCO, to deliver support for pupils with Emotionally Based School Avoidance (EBSA). We acknowledge that a key feature of EBSA, is that the child is unable to go to school due to emotional or wellbeing factors. They may feel too stressed by the school environment, or their confidence and self-esteem could have been impacted by events within the school. This can leave a pupil not accessing education.

As an Outreach 1:1 Teaching Assistant, your objective will be to provide personalised educational assistance to a specific pupil in need of additional support and who are unable to access the school setting. Your role will involve building a strong rapport with the pupil, understanding their individual needs, and implementing strategies to enhance their learning experience. You will work collaboratively with the school staff, parents, and other professionals to create a nurturing and inclusive environment that promotes the pupil's overall development and success. It’s important to note that this will be a hybrid role and you will also be deployed as a Teaching Assistant to support pupils in lessons, as the need for outreach work will vary.

You will require a car and a full driving license.

Commitment to safeguarding

The Macclesfield Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.

All successful applicants will be requested to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check. A Section 128 check will be carried out on individuals applying for any role that retains or has been delegated any management responsibilities under the terms of a direction made by the Secretary of State for Education.
