Job description

Phonics support teaching assistant - Radcliffe, Bury primary school

A primary school in the Radcliffe, Bury (M26) area are currently looking for a specialist Teaching and Learning Support Assistant to lead phonics interventions across Key Stage 1 to raise attainment in the school.

  • 25th February 2019
  • £270 - £300 a week
  • Full academic year with the possibility of going onto a permanent contract

The Head Teacher is currently looking for a Teaching Assistant with previous experience with different phonics schemes who can deliver phonics interventions with a selected number of children who would benefit from an intense booster programme.

These children are mainly working at lower than expected age related levels for Reading and Writing. The majority of children in this school arrive from socially deprived backgrounds and have little academic support at home. There are some behavioural needs in the school and so it is important that you can use a range of strategies to ensure poor behaviour does not impact on learning and the development of the children's Reading and Writing.

The School is graded 'GOOD' by Ofsted from a previous inspection and can provide excellent facilities including intervention rooms to engage with the children.

In order to apply for this role, you must have the following;

  • An accredited Level 2 qualification in Teaching and Learning or above.
  • Prior experience in a KS1 or KS2 class, supporting children with additional needs or with Reading and Writing.

The School have also specified that it would be preferable to have the following;

  • A specialism in English Language, Literature or Linguistics at A-Level or Degree Level.
  • Training in Phonics delivery either in Read Write Inc. or Letters and Sounds.
  • Prior experience in delivering small grouped Reading and Writing interventions.
  • Experience working alongside children with challenging behaviour and special educational needs.

If this role sounds suitable then please send your CV or call the Manchester West primary branch on 0161 242 1792 for more information.

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.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
