Upper Key Stage 2 TA job summary

We are looking to appoint an empathetic, enthusiastic and supportive Teaching Assistant to provide individual support for a pupil with ADHD and associated attention and resilience difficulties. The pupil is currently in our Year 4 Class, moving into Year 5 in September 2022. Experience of working with children with autism and/ or ADHD would be beneficial, but not essential, as it is more important that we find the right the person to support the pupil and build a supportive relationship. All necessary training will be given.

You will be required to plan closely with the class teacher to maximise curriculum access for the pupil by preparing practical, relevant learning experiences. We encourage independence in all of our pupils so you may also be required to work with other pupils both in and outside of the classroom setting on occasion. You must have a good standard of English and Maths and be able to communicate effectively with adults and children. You will be expected to use your initiative and to contribute your ideas. We are looking for someone who enjoys working with children, is resilient, works well as part of a team and has a good sense of humour!

This is a temporary post, linked to High Needs Funding for the pupil, to be reviewed annually or if the pupil should leave the school. It is a full-time post, for 28.75 hours per week, to be worked from 8.30am - 3.15pm daily. (Term time only).

We are looking to appoint to this post as soon as we are able, and reserve the right to interview candidates upon receipt of their applications, with a view to negotiating a mutually acceptable start date as part of the interview process.
