Location: Covering Exeter and Barnstaple
We are wishing to recruit additional teaching assistants to work in a modern and well-resourced Early Years setting in one of the Exeter Based schools. There are several positions available to work as part of the KS1 or KS2 teams within the Trust.
This is an exciting time to join us at Cornerstone Academy Trust, with schools based on the edge of Exeter in East Devon and in the coastal town of Barnstaple in North Devon. The Academy Trust has a national and international reputation for its outstanding and innovative education and its schools are highly sort after. We are responsible for a number of Department for Education ‘centres of excellence’, working with other teachers and schools across the country to provide professional development and support with school improvement strategies.
We are wishing to recruit an Educational Psychologist who will be based across our Multi-Academy Trust as part of the SEND team. Working alongside the Head of Children’s Services and the broader SEND team, the Educational Psychologist will work with children 1:1 and observe in class in order to identify needs and provide recommendations for support. You will consult with staff and parents regarding children’s needs and provide written reports for professionals and parents. Attend EHCP Annual Review meetings and/or TAF meetings, where appropriate and work collaboratively with the SEND team and provide guidance and strategic advice to the Leadership and Teaching Team. The role is flexible and varied but plays a vital role in supporting the children during their time at primary school. You will need to be professionally qualified and registered with the HCPC.
The role is a permanent, term-time only position. We are seeking someone for a minimum of 3 days a week, however there is scope for the role to be up to 5 days a week in term time. The salary will be between £44,000 - £50,000 pro rata, subject to experience. This allows for progression within the role in line with our appraisal and professional development processes. The actual salary will be lower to reflect the hours per week and the weeks per year.
You will have access to the Local Government pension scheme, a health scheme, a cycle to work scheme and subsidised meals in our staff café with food cooked and served by our own chefs. Successful candidates will be provided with state-of-the-art IT equipment to help them fulfil their duties and we support all staff with an investment in their professional development through training and a good performance management process, where a bonus is payable to those who achieve highly.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check is required for all our posts.
We look forward to receiving your application and hopefully meeting you as part of the recruitment process
