What skills and experience we're looking for
Our experienced Head teacher and her supportive senior leadership team are looking to recruit an experienced SEND teaching assistant to work alongside an experienced SEND teacher within our new Enhanced Learning Provision for children with SEND. This position is term time only, working up to 30hrs per week.
The Crescent Primary School is a large, three-form entry school in the Selhurst area of Croydon, with a modern building and fantastic grounds, but more importantly, amazing pupils. Our school is part of The Pioneer Academy Trust. We have a large team of staff who work together to ensure that everyone is equipped with the skills they need to succeed. We believe that everyone has the right to learn, whoever they are, whatever they can and can't yet do, and that together, we are stronger.
At The Crescent Primary School we are opening a MLD ELP for children with Mild Learning Difficulties. Croydon special schools and enhanced learning provisions offer appropriate placements for children and young people with the most significant needs, who require a curriculum which is wrapped around them so that they can engage in learning. Special School and ELPs form part of Croydon’s continuum of provision and services which The Council makes for children and young people with SEND. They offer a variety of provision through their different designations and distinctive areas of expertise. The ELP curriculum is topic based and is a blend of EYFS/KS1 learning, social communication skills, listening, speaking and attention. There is also a focus on sensory needs, behaviour and play. The children all have individual packages of support according to their own particular needs.
A SEND teaching assistant is responsible for ensuring that learning and teaching is highly effective and that named pupils and specified children with SEND can achieve their maximum potential.

- A friendly, dedicated staff team who believe in teamwork and building positive relationships across the school, the Trust and in the local community.
