About the role
We have a vacancy available for an Individual Needs Assistant to join our nurturing, inclusive Church academy, starting January 2021 (or sooner if possible).
The successful candidate will be supporting pupils who have an Education, Health and Care Plan and will work closely with the class teacher to provide support for learning as well as consistent pastoral and behavioural support. It is essential that our INAs are effective team players but are also able to work on their own initiative and be adaptable in this busy and broad role. We are looking for candidates who are passionate about inclusion and who are keen to "champion" the pupils they work with.
You will have experience of working with pupils with autism and speech, language and communication needs. You will also have a range of strategies to support pupils with SEND and strong behaviour management experience. A Level 2/3 NVQ is desirable.
We are a small inclusion department who believe strongly in supporting and learning from one another. We are committed to the continued professional development and training for all staff and strive to make our school a nurturing and happy place to be.
The position is for 30 hours per week, term time only, Monday - Friday, 8.45a.m. - 3.15p.m., 30 minute lunch break. You will be paid on the Single Status pay scale (Grade 3 £18,562 pro rata, per annum).
