Crosby High School (a 146 place 11-16 school for pupils with moderate learning difficulties/complex learning difficulties) is seeking to appoint a dedicated and committed teaching assistant with a proven record of academic support for children as well as an ability to offer quality care and support to children. Experience of primary practice and / or working with pupils with Special Educational Needs is desirable as is experience and knowledge of working with pupils whose prime needs relate to social and emotional barriers to learning.
We are looking to appoint someone with strong communication skills who recognise that the role of the TA is strongly linked to removing barriers for learning for our pupils. We are looking for someone who demonstrates a deep passion in relation to the education of pupils with Special Educational Needs as the focus of the school is firmly set on providing the very best education for every pupil.
The post is very specific and is a 1-1 post to support a Year 11 girl who has learning, physical and medical disabilities. The successful candidate will be employed specifically for this individual pupil but will also be expected to support other pupils in the class. A proportion of the support will involve lifting and handling as the young lady is quite frail as well as personal care and toileting. Training will be provided prior to commencement of the post. The post can commence as soon as possible however the school recognise there may be a months notice period needed for applicants
We can offer:
- A welcoming and supportive school community based on a strong ethos where everyone is valued.
- Highly motivated, enthusiastic and eager learners who participate fully in all aspects of school life.
- A dedicated and hard-working staff team who are committed to continuous school development to improve outcomes for children and their families.
- An exciting opportunity to work with children with Special Education Needs and have an impact on their all round development.
