A “Good” primary school in the Chadderton area of Oldham are currently working with Teaching Personnel on a preferred supplier basis. As a result, they are working closely with us to support various children within the school who have additional SEN needs.
There is a particular child in Year 5 who has been diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit) and needs the support of a teaching assistant on a full time basis from ASAP. The child displays a number of challenging behaviours which can be related to their inability to communicate effectively and a short attention span. As an SEN teaching assistant, supporting the learning of a year 5 child is of paramount importance.
