  • Full time 5 days a week from January 2017 until at least Summer 2017.
  • Blackburn Primary School with a supportive and friendly staffroom atmosphere.
  • Experience supporting pupils with SEMH is essential for this role.


The successful candidate will be required to work on a 1:1 basis with a child in Year 1 with physical, sensory, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties. This pupil needs nurturing support which will contribute towards positively managing challenging behaviour in the classroom and enable them to return to class on a permanent basis.

The role will involve 1:1 support work both inside and out of class as appropriate. Team teach trained would be an advantage, however, experience of active child support in similar circumstances is essential. Experience working with pupils within a nurture provision, supporting ‘looked after children’ or pupils with attachment disorders is highly sought after.

The school is a larger than average, two form-entry junior school, located just off junction 3 and 4 of the M65. It is easily accessible via a number of public transport links and the A666. The school has very high expectations of behaviour management in school, as they do have a number of pupils with SEMH.
