Our school has an exciting opportunity for 2 people to join our team as Teaching Assistants, supporting pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
1 post will be working in a team led by a teacher to support a small group of children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs. These pupils will also have other SEND needs that will require tailored interventions and approaches. The provision is very well resourced and includes academic and therapeutic spaces and activities. You will be supporting pupils to access mainstream provision over time.
1 post will be supporting pupils across school on a 1:1 and small group basis, as required. Flexibility will be necessary for this post as changes may need to be made at short notice.

• the ability to build good relationships with primary aged pupils;
• a passion for working with pupils with SEND;
• working well within a team.
We can offer supportive staff teams, a focus on well-being, training, opportunities to develop interests and specialisms and of course the chance to make a positive difference to the lives of young people in our community. TAs working with us say our school "is full of amazing people - it's so special to be part of such a brilliant team" and that "everyone is always friendly, super supportive and helpful". There is a "sense of community between staff and pupils" and that "to watch pupils grow and learn is fantastic - a privilege to help them on their journey". Come and be a part of this!!
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
