An exciting opportunity to join a supportive and collaborative team in a flourishing independent school which caters for students with special educational needs (SEN).
Abingdon House School is a unique and successful Independent Day School for children with Specific Learning Difficulties including autistic spectrum condition, ADHD, dyspraxia and sensory processing disorder, aged 5-17. The school delivers holistic and integrated programmes of education, therapy and personal development for its students.
Teaching Assistants (TAs) will provide support to a class of up to twelve pupils. The main purpose of the role is to support the students to access the teaching and learning provided and to assist the Classroom Teacher and Therapists in the management of pupils and the classroom. As such, the role is tied to the child and is offered as a fixed-term contract on this basis.
TAs work with both pastoral and academic staff to enhance and enrich the learning experience of the pupils. The context for this work is varied, encompassing both the classroom and educational experiences beyond the classroom.
All TAs are encouraged and enabled to take part in additional training to become qualified in supporting the needs of learners with SpLD, Autism and other associated needs.
