Teaching Personnel are currently looking to appoint a teaching assistant on a long term basis (at least one term) to work on a 1:1 basis with a child in Y1 who has funded support for her learning needs and behaviour.

The Head teacher in school has commented that ‘the young girl needs a routine and structure- the successful candidate will need to have experience with Autism and associated behavioural needs- we use a range of strategies in the Year 1 class to ensure the child is catered for and can meet all learning objectives.

The school received GOOD from Ofsted back in 2013 during a full inspection- With the behaviour of the children and leadership being mentioned as the driving force behind the high standards of attainment in school. The school is located within an ‘affluent’ part of Preston, and the majority of children do arrive at school working in line or above expected levels. However there are more children arriving in school who require additional support.

The role is to start as soon as possible, due to funding and will continue, five days a week until at least Christmas possibly for the rest of the year. There is the possibility that the successful candidate will then be needed further after this.
