These are fixed term posts due to the Special Educational Needs of Students, required to start as soon as possible.
St Peter’s is an oversubscribed school, known as a high performing school and nationally recognised for our approaches to character education. Our most recent Ofsted inspection (‘Good’ November 2019 and SIAMS inspection (‘Excellent’ May 2019) indicate the significant progress we have made in developing well rounded students who ‘live life to the full’.
We wish to appoint four Teaching Assistants to work with our SEND Team supporting students who have needs relating to Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health and Physical and/or Sensory needs.
Personal skills would include:
- A high level of patience
- Be able to empathise
- Good listening skills
- A good sense of humour
- An English and Maths qualification at C grade GCSE or above
Our students make working here a real pleasure, and as such we have high expectation for both our students and ourselves.
- A welcoming and friendly team of excellent staff
- A supportive working environment
- Students with a drive to succeed
A willingness and ability to offer time and energy to our wellbeing programme &/or extra-curricular provision (which we believe adds significant value to our character based approaches to education, including our Duke of Edinburgh and Ten Tors), will be taken into consideration for applications.
As a Church of England Aided School, in cases of equal merit preference will be given to candidates who are in sympathy with the foundation. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This role requires a DBS disclosure. This role requires the ability to fulfil all spoken aspects of the role with confidence and fluency in English.
