We are seeking a motivated and enthusiastic individual to join our team as a Teaching Assistant at Dolton Primary School to provide support (under the direction of the teacher) to a pupil with special educational needs. You will support them to access the curriculum and assist with the participation of school activities. You will work one to one with a pupil, usually in the classroom and be responsible for supporting them by gaining an understanding of their needs and working with the teacher to develop strategies to support them in school. You will undertake general clerical/organisation support for the teacher in relation to the student.
Previous experience of working with children or people-facing roles is desirable as good interpersonal skills are essential. You will be proactive and a positive team player; able to work constructively as part of a team to ensure that the learning environments meet the needs of the child you will be supporting to allow them to become confident, capable and have a positive self-image. Good communication skills are essential.
The successful candidate will have drive, enthusiasm and be passionate about learning. Dolton School is a small village school that takes children from 2 to 11 years old. All our pupils are supported by our teachers as individuals to grow to be inspiring changemakers in a caring, family and community-centred rural environment. We are committed to helping our children develop and evolve during their time with us and beyond. The school aims to serve its communities by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers its pupils.
The Trust is growing and offers significant professional growth in progressing your career path with us. The Alumnis Multi Academy Trust is a group of church and community primary schools that put children and staff at the heart of the Trust.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
