Job description

Full time 1:1 support role working alongside a 'Looked after child'

Work guaranteed until the end of Academic year

Work in a GOOD Roman Catholic Primary School

I am currently looking for a teaching assistant to take up a role ASAP.

The role is to work closely with a child in Year 6 who has funding available due to being a 'looked after child'. The successful candidate will be expected to work full time with this child allowing him to work more effectively in class, as well as supporting him in with social and emotional development. The child's behaviour has been classed as 'beautiful' by the school head teacher/school SENCO. The support is required due to the funding stream that has been granted by the local authority. Your day with consist of supporting the child within the classroom but also delivering some 'golden time' in the afternoon which the head is keen on. The Head Teacher feels as though she wants to give the pupil regular rewards as school life can be seen as rest bite. The head has stressed that with the pupil moving onto secondary school next year she wants the child to enjoy Primary school and be fully equipped to move onto secondary. With this in mind, there may be some transition work required.

The hours will be part time (8.30 - 3.30)

The role will be to start as soon as possible

It will be until July 2018

This is an excellent opportunity for anybody who has had experience of working alongside 'looked after children' or children with various emotional needs. This would be an excellent opportunity, please contact me for further information on 01772 842155 or email
