Do you thrive on providing high quality education to one of the most marginalised groups in society. Do you want the best for all pupils no matter what their barriers to learning are? We are seeking an enthusiastic individual with the skills to lead a team of fellow TAs, to join our school community. The successful candidate will need to be tolerant, and understanding, show care and concern whilst being fair and consistent. They must be resilient and committed to improving outcomes for pupils and a good sense of humour is essential.

Mill Water School is an all-age special school for pupils with severe and complex learning difficulties, including Autism.  The school stands in the grounds of Bicton College. Our beautiful, rural surroundings provide unrivalled opportunities for outdoor learning. 

From EYFS through to Post 16, our pupils access a bespoke learning and communication package to challenge their educational progress, working in partnership with multi-agency professionals and families. 

We now have an exciting opportunity for a Grade D TA to join our class teams. Ideally, you will have experience working with pupils with SEND but the right personal qualities can be as important. Experience in supporting children's learning and recording holistic achievements is desirable.  An ability to work positively within a team of classroom assistants is essential in order to maximise pupil learning and contribute to an inspiring learning environment.

We offer comprehensive induction training, as well as ongoing professional development.

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 the ability to fulfil all spoken aspects of the role with confidence and fluency in English.
