As part of The Wensum Trust, we believe that our shared duty is to help every child to develop into high achieving, confident, healthy, caring and resilient members of their family and community. We want our schools to be healthy environments where both children and staff can develop and where strong, positive relationships are key. Our school, therefore, practices a relational approach with children, our families and our communities. We are particularly interested in working with people who share Our Qualities; who will work effectively and flexibly as part of a team.
Lodge Lane is a two form entry Infant School in Old Catton. The school focuses all of its learning around six values: kindness, teamwork, challenge, respect, curiosity and perseverance and through these values, we follow an inquiry based approach to the curriculum.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and caring person who is able to support children in EYFS and KS1 with a range of additional needs including but not restricted to: speech and language, social, emotional and mental health, intimate care, medical and cognition and learning. Some, but not all of the children in your care will have an EHCP and/or a diagnosis e.g. ASD. You would join a well-established and experienced team of Teachers and TAs and would work alongside the teachers and the SENDCo to support the children.
This role involves working collaboratively with other SEN support assistants. Depending on the needs of individual children, your time will be split between the mainstream classrooms and our nurture provision.
The role will be working 27.5 hours a week , start and finish times to be confirmed, Monday – Friday, term time plus one week.
Being a part of The Wensum Trust’s family of schools offers employees unique experiences to work alongside our strategic partners and to collaborate with a wider network of staff. We believe in investing in employees as individuals, by providing training opportunities that help to develop both existing and new skill sets, to encourage career progression at all levels.
We value our staff and are committed to supporting their wellbeing. We have an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) which all staff can access 24 hours a day. The EAP provides counselling services, legal information and guidance, musculoskeletal services and online resources such as nutrition diaries, healthy eating plans, personal coaching questionnaires and tools and fitness programmes.
