This vacancy has now expired.

Job description

A school in Stratford (E15) are in need of someone to provide specialist 1-2-1 SEN support for an Autistic child from October half-term for the rest of this academic year. The school have set out the following requirements for this role:

  • Experience of SEND support (preferably Autism).
  • Experience with Primary aged children.
  • Good behaviour management skills.

The school is a friendly 2 form entry Primary school in the Stratford area. They received a GOOD in their last Oftsed in 2017 and most staff have been at the school for a number of years, due to it being such a positive work environment.  The school is very easily commutable by train or bus as it is close to Stratford station.

A SEN TA is required for a year 4 child who is non-verbal and has Autism, meaning he needs full-time support when in school. This involves both facilitating his learning in class and accompanying and supporting him if he needs to leave class from time to time. A 1-2-1 member of staff is required in addition to the class’s TA to provide more specialist and tailored support, where one class TA simply isn’t sufficient.

The school’s only absolute requirement is that the candidate is experienced and confident in providing 1-2-1 SEN support. This is because the child has to be taken from class quite regularly and the member of staff must be trusted to handle this appropriately. 1-2-1 support in any capacity such as specialist SEN provisions, PRUs, the care industry or behavioural support would therefore go a long way of assuring the school in this case. Any experience specific to Autism or supporting children at this very formative age would also be a significant bonus to any candidate’s application. Any experience with resources such as MAKATON and engaging and sticking to an EHCP for a child would also be desirable for the school. The more varied the experience the better.

If you are interested in this role then please apply where indicated and Teaching Personnel will arrange interviews and trials at the earliest possible opportunity.

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.
