This vacancy has now expired.

Job description

Blackpool Primary School - 1:1 SEN TA role- Full Academic Year!

A 'Good' Blackpool Primary School requires a specialist teaching assistant to work 1:1 with a child in a Year 4 class.

The role will commence ASAP and is expected to continue for the full academic year on a temporary supply basis.

The school are keen to appoint an experienced support assistant who has worked previously in school alongside children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs.

The child has been granted funding through the Local Authority and with this the school are keen to gain support to work with the child on a full time basis. The funding will stretch to working with the child on a full time basis, five days a week for the remainder of the academic year. This is an excellent opportunity for a teaching assistant looking for a new challenge in the New Year; it will also give you peace of mind that you have work for the remainder of the school calendar.

The child:

The child has recently relocated to the area and is new to the school. The young boy is in the Y4 class and requires constant 1:1 support to maximise attainment. This role requires a strong character who is not phased by challenging behaviour - Team Teach training would be advantageous. The Head teacher is keen to make sure the child will continue to develop further and so the successful candidate must be able to hit the ground running and build a strong bond with the child. The needs of the child are not specific and can be quite sporadic; from emotional outbursts to break downs in class. A candidate with excellent safeguarding knowledge and experience working alongside children with a complex home-life would be advantageous.

The school:

The school is located in the heart of Blackpool. The School is located within a predominately White British area and the children tend to arrive from lower middle class backgrounds. With this, the parents of the children tend to be supportive and expect high standards from the school. As well, the school is accessible through good transport links and major roads.

How to apply and what the entry level requirements are:

The school are looking for a teaching assistant who is Level 2 or above qualified and someone who has prior experience working on a 1:1 basis alongside children with SEMH. You must be available to take up full time work immediately and commit to the role for the academic year. You must have a DBS on the update service online. It is also at the discretion of the school as to whether they accept candidates with a criminal record.

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.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
