Requires a Teaching Assistant for behaviour support
We have a wonderful opportunity to join our thriving school and take a key role in supporting children's learning and behaviour.
You will mainly work to support specific children with their learning and behaviour management. This might also involve promoting children's mental health and emotional wellbeing needs to ensure that they are ready for learning.
At Chyngton, we combine a therapeutic approach with high expectations and clear boundaries to support our more vulnerable learners. If you are a firm, clear, passionate advocate for disadvantaged children you could be perfect for our school!
In all cases you will be working closely with dedicated and supportive teams of teachers and teaching assistants who all want to achieve the best for their children and who will want to make the best use of your skills to achieve that aim.
At Chyngton we are committed to the ongoing professional development of our staff which contributes to the positive and highly effective team that we are. We have a positive 'can do' approach and welcome applications from anyone who is passionate about supporting all children and improving their own practice.
