Job details

Are you interested in joining our friendly and hard-working team, working with children with severe and complex needs, autism and challenging behaviours between the ages of 2 – 11 years? 

We have openings for Level 2 Teaching Assistants, with additional Special School Childrens Superintendent hours.

We require suitably qualified Level 2 Teaching Assistants to work 26.25 hours per week and 3.75 hours per week as a Lunch Supt.  This position is offered as a term-time only post and on a fixed term contract, commencing as soon after as possible, but ideally before 01.11.21.

We are looking for:

  • Kind, calm and enthusiastic teaching assistants, who will be part of a class team, working in support of up to 9/10 pupils in a class.
  • Teaching assistants who are flexible, encouraging and committed to the progress of every child, regardless of their starting points or the barriers to learning that they have to overcome.

We can offer:

  • A supportive team used to working together
  • Excellent opportunities for continuing professional development
  • A friendly and stimulating environment in which to work

Does this sound like something that you might make a positive contribution to?

A place where you will be able to enhance our teaching and learning offer and somewhere that you can grow as a professional?

If so, then we look forward to receiving your application.

Experience working within a special school is not essential but enthusiasm, dedication and a genuine desire to work with our children are paramount.

If you have these qualities, combined with a good sense of humour, please come and visit during the school day when we return in the Autumn term, so you can meet our children and the school team.

The school is strongly committed to safeguarding and promotes the welfare of children, and all staff and volunteers are expected to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check will be required.
