Behaviour Support Assistant

This vacancy has now expired.

Job description

A primary school in Kirklees / Batley (WF17) are looking for an experienced Teaching Assistant to occupy a Behaviour Support role across a number of year groups until at least December 2020. If you are experienced in dealing with challenging behaviour then this could be the role for you.

The Primary school have a number of children across Years 3-6 who often exhibit challenging behaviour, which will not be helped by such a long break from school. Therefore, in order to manage the return to school the SLT have identified that someone with experience in dealing with challenging children is needed to provide extra support, initially for the first term of this academic year.

This role will require someone who can work flexibly across different classes depending on where they are most needed. Of course portions of this role will be similar to conventional TA work, focussing closely on these children to make sure they are concentrating and behaving in class. Experience of supporting challenging behaviour, in any capacity, is therefore essential as the school need someone who won’t be phased by tackling challenging behaviour in the KS2 age range.

The school would also favour someone who has experience in any support worker or pastoral roles in the past. This because some of the children have very challenging home lives, and therefore it is important to form strong relationships in school so that they are comfortable in a school environment again. This would also serve as good preparation for the more challenging behaviour they can sometimes exhibit, and how to avoid potentially difficult situations. A background in the care industry, pastoral, or support work would be well received by school for this reason.

If you are interested in this role please contact Charley Alexander at the Leeds Wakefield Primary branch on the details below or, register to Teaching Personnel online. 

All applicants will require the appropriate qualifications and training for this role. Please see for details.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay. This advert is for a temporary position. In some cases, the option to make this role permanent may become available at a later date.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We offer all our registered candidates FREE child protection and prevent duty training. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
