Primary Behaviour Teaching Assistant

Job description

We are seeking behaviour support Teaching Assistants in Bodmin and surrounding areas!

We are expecting schools to need a lot of additional support with behaviour from September due to the school closures and how long students have had out of school routine. We expect our client schools to need flexible long-term members of staff to work 1:1 or with small groups of children who may struggle with returning to school. It may be that these pupils display challenging behaviour or they may suffer with social and emotional needs. It will be important that supply staff are nurturing, approachable and knowledgeable to give these pupils the best possible support when they return.

The majority of the bookings we will be working on will initially be temporary as schools are awaiting guidance on the new funding and may not be entirely clear on their staffing structure for the year. However, it is likely that schools will offer fixed term contracts for the right candidates so although these positions will begin on a flexible basis, it is possible to be taken onto a direct contract.

We are seeking candidates with experience supporting challenging behaviour or special educational needs in either a school or care setting. Experience with primary aged pupils would also be essential. We will have roles available within EYFS to KS2.

If you are a teaching assistant who is confident supporting challenging behaviour and SEMH and would like a new role for next academic year, please contact We will take you through the registration process and discuss your most local schools and which roles are available.


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.
