Term Time Only (39 weeks) (38 weeks + 5 INSET days)

Required to start ASAP 

We are looking for a Learning Support Assistant to provide support for a KS1 or KS2 pupil with complex cognitive attention and sensory needs.  You would also be required to help the class teacher with classroom organisation and administration as well as supporting the individual child on the playground to interact and play well with their peers.  This post is event linked which means if the child you are assigned to leaves the school or no longer requires one to one support, the post will cease.  


You will be required to support children’s learning and development, help to plan and organise activities and the learning environment as well as contribute to the overall ethos of the school.  You will also be required to participate in training and other learning activities as necessary. 

Experience of working with children with SEN is desirable and you should have experience of working with children in a mainstream educational or similar setting. You should be able to demonstrate knowledge/understanding of the needs of such pupils described above.  You will need to have good verbal and written communication skills and a commitment to helping children to achieve their best.   

You will be joining a hard working and friendly team and you will be provided with support, guidance and training organised by our SENCo.
