Job description

Teaching Assistant required to provide support to students with SEN and associated behavioural difficulties.

Our client school are looking for a Support Assistant with the ability to support pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties and associated challenging behaviours.

The school is situated in Salwick near Preston. Salwick is a largely rural village between Kirkham and Preston in Lancashire.

The main part of the school is based in a converted barn, with two additional classrooms, a multipurpose room and break out areas positioned alongside it which can cater for up to 20 pupils.

The pupils are all male, aged between 5-12 years old, and have significant learning difficulties as a result of their emotional and behavioural problems. They may also have MLD, ASC, SpLD, ODD, ADHD and OCD. Their attitudes towards and capacities for learning will vary considerably. The school therefore place great emphasis on differentiation of activities and materials to take account of individual learning styles. They take a proactive approach to identify all potential problems and avoid their escalation through addressing issues physically, emotionally and socially. The individual needs and difficulties of each pupil can be met through a variation of class-based, group and individual strategies involving a wide range of teaching skills, perspectives and resources.

You will ideally have experience supporting young people with significant behavioural difficulties and SEN. You must be resilient, quick-thinking, enthusiastic and understanding.

The role is to start ASAP! If interested, please send a copy of your CV or call 01772 842155.
