We wish to appoint a caring, enthusiastic assistant who will be able to support the learning of individuals and small groups of pupils some of whom have Special Educational Needs. Previous experience of working with children in an educational setting is essential and knowledge of Makaton and Elklan would be an advantage. For a suitably qualified and experienced candidate there is the opportunity to act as a cover supervisor which attracts additional payment. The post will also include some additional lunchtime supervision and cover for afterschool club.


You will join a team of experienced teaching assistants who are supported by the head of school, SENDco and Speech Therapist. Professional development and training are provided regularly.


The Federation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and requires all staff and volunteers to demonstrate this commitment in every aspect of their work. The successful candidate will need to undertake a DBS check.
