Learning Support Assistant (7 hours within school day)

Cranbrook SchoolKent

We are looking to recruit a Learning Support Assistant (LSA), who will support the teaching and learning for an identified student with additional learning needs. The candidate will ideally need to have a good understanding of students with additional educational needs and relevant experience in working with them in an educational setting. Applications are particularly welcome from candidates with specific prior experience of supporting students with either Autism, Selective Mutism or ADHD.

As an LSA you will be committed to inclusive education by helping the student access the curriculum, participate in the wider life of the school and reach their expected achievements.

We are looking for candidates with good literacy, numeracy and communication skills as well as resilience, initiative, flexibility, a sense of humour and the ability to relate to children.

The post will initially be for a 2-year period or will end when the student leaves the school or if the student is no longer entitled to additional support, whichever is the soonest. The hours may also be reduced, should the student require less support. This position is term time only, plus 1 week of inset days.
