A primary school located in Nottingham is seeking a Teaching Assistant that has an abundance of experience working with Special Educational Needs (SEN) children, to start November 2019. The role is to work alongside and provide one-to-one support to SEN children.

As a SEN Primary Teaching Assistant you will be responsible for creating a positive learning environment for students, providing both emotional and educational support for them. The right candidate must be able to develop rapport with the children, in order to gain a better understanding and to allow pupils to open up, ensuring that they feel as though they are being listened to and understood, instilling confidence within them.


The successful candidate’s role will be to support children and help with maintaining concentration on tasks and to help motivate. The Class Teacher will take responsibility for planning activities, providing access to the curriculum in a way that suits them; however it will be your job to deliver this to SEN pupils and to support them in completing it. Being able to build a positive relationship with children is of great importance. The school need a SEN Primary Teaching Assistant who will be patient and sensitive to the needs of children, and will ensure that they feel safe and happy.

The proportion of children with SEN and/or with disabilities, within the primary school, is above the national average, as is the number of disadvantaged children. The pupils are placed at the heart of the school; the team of dedicated staff and governors recognise that every child is unique and deserves the opportunity to be happy, feel valued and experience success. The school are looking for an educational professional who shares these values and who aims to promote these within their practice.

The Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator will be the main point of contact for this role and will be there, along with the Class Teacher, to ensure that the successful candidate is fully aware of the individual needs of the children and any strategies that are known to be successful. Due to the time of year, the child’s EHCP targets will have previously been set by the SENCo.
