Behaviour Support Teaching Assistant - Blackpool

This vacancy has now expired.

Job description

SEN Support (ADHD and Autism Experienced required) in a Blackpool Primary School.

A top performing school in Blackpool have approached Teaching Personnel to source, shortlist and appoint a teaching assistant on a long-term basis. The Head teacher in school has contacted me today regarding a child who has recently relocated to the area from London. The child in Y4 often displays challenging behaviours and requires 1:1 supervision at all times. With this in mind, over the next couple of days I will be looking to source and shortlist a number of teaching assistants who possess a strong character, experience with special educational needs and the commitment to taking up a longer term position in a Blackpool school. This is a full time support role and the working hours will be 8:45-3:15 with 30 minutes of unpaid lunch. In order to be considered for the above role then you MUST hold a qualification relevant to working with children in an education setting. You MUST have experience working and supporting children with special educational needs including Autism, ADHD and Social Emotional and Mental Health needs. You MUST also have the right attitude to build strong working relationships in school with the parents, the staff and the children.

The Head teacher she has taken the school from strength to strength and has an excellent reputation in the area. The staff in school are well supported and given all the tools to support the children to ensure they meet their expected levels. The majority of the children who attend school are from a mixed social background, with good behaviour. However, you will come into contact with children who are from socially deprived backgrounds and broken families. With this, you must be prepared to use a range of behaviour strategies to ensure all the children safe and stimulated in the classroom. The school does hold a consistent behaviour policy which is used across all year groups. The Head teacher will ensure a full induction is implemented on you arriving in school and you will be well supported by the SENCO and Deputy Head.

The role will be to start as soon as the school appoint, expected to be in the next week or so. The Head teacher noted that this could potentially lead to a permanent contracted role. The expected rate per hour is £9 and the expected working hours will be from 845-1515 with half an hour lunch.
