Farrington Gurney Church of England Primary School are looking to appoint a Teaching Assistant to support a child in Year 2 with an Education Healthcare Plan and join our small, friendly, supportive and adaptable team. Knowledge and experience of delivering individual specialised support in a range of areas, along with experience in Early Years and Key Stage 1 is highly desirable.
The child has a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder and the main needs on his EHCP are classified as:
• Language development in both receptive and expressive language skills
• Social awareness and understanding
• Participation in learning
• Emotional wellbeing
The child will need an extremely tailored curriculum to reflect his individual learning needs. He will also need dedicated 1:1 support in order to access whole-class teaching sessions.
We require someone committed to inclusion and to want to make a positive difference. They need to be confident to scaffold the child’s learning and be prepared to encourage independence when and as appropriate as the child develops.
This is initially a temporary appointment related to the provision of special needs support in respect of the child and will continue pending a review of the Education Healthcare Plan or the child’s departure from the school if earlier.
The post is for 27.5 hours per week (term time only) Monday-Friday.
Completed application forms should be completed through the online portal of the TES website.
Visits to the school are encouraged. Please contact the school on 01761 452419 or email@example.com to make an appointment.
The closing date for the post will be Monday 23rd September with shortlisting taking place the following day.
Interviews will take place on the morning of Tuesday 1st October.
Farrington Gurney Primary School is part of the Midsomer Norton Schools’ Partnership, which is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The successful applicant will need to undertake an enhanced disclosure via the Criminal Records Bureau.
