SEND Teaching Assistant job summary

Somercotes Infants are looking for a dedicated, caring and enthusiastic person to join our team. The job is for a one to one TA to work with a child with an EHCP.

Context

The descriptions below of our ‘why’, ‘how’ and ‘what’ define the work we are developing as a Trust. They are an aspiration, and we are always striving to achieve them.

We ensure our ‘why’, ‘how’ and ‘what’ hold us to account for the work we do.

Why do we exist?

Our purpose is to ensure every LEARNER has choices about their future

  • Our first job is to support and extend learning for pupils to provide them with the skills and knowledge to make those choices.
  • Our second job is to make sure no child is ignored, no family is unsupported and no life is wasted, by providing intervention at the earliest opportunity.
  • Our responsibility to education is to provide an environment where practitioners can collaborate, learn from each other, take risks and reflect

How will we act?

We will use our purpose as a driver for our culture, ensuring we are;

Connected (sharing information openly, broadly and deliberately)

Helpful (embracing servant leadership and use initiative to solve the problem)

Organised (employing efficient strategies and trust colleagues to deliver)

Informed (asking coaching questions to understand what is happening)

Candid (disagreeing openly and compassionately)

Effective (only retaining our best elements and looking for continuous improvement)

Simple (avoiding complexity and increasing clarity)

What is our strategy?

We will use our culture to ensure the work of the Trust;

Focuses on creating capacity (time and resources) for schools

Ensures support is agile, providing intervention at the earliest opportunity

Supports schools to employ and invest in the best educators for children
