Teaching Assistant 1:1
1 to 1 Teaching Assistant January 2024
Mrs Mary King’s is a small rural primary school with excellent facilities and a close-knit supportive team who take great pride in the school’s sense of community and caring ethos.
The governors are looking to appoint a teaching assistant who will be primarily responsible for supporting the needs of a named child with an Education Health care Plan (EHCP) but who will also work flexibly within the team; this will include more general duties supporting the wider school. The child is currently in Year 1 and the post will remain until the child leaves the school.
The main duties will include:
- Helping the teacher adapt work to support the child’s additional learning needs whilst ensuring they are fully included in the life of the school.
- Working with the child individually or in small groups including other children with similar needs to encourage communication and social skills.
- Delivery of phonics to the individual and as part of a group
- Working with groups within the wider class or school to allow other staff to carry out focused work with the named child.
- Delivering the areas of learning and medical support identified in the child’s EHCP including physio therapy routines. Liaising with the child’s parent to ensure there is effective home school communication.
The successful candidate will need to be a caring patient individual who has a good understanding of the needs of a child with ADHD or Autism and the demands this generates.
Prior experience of working to support children with SEND in a school setting is desirable but training and support can be offered to any suitably caring and empathetic individual.
Ability to communicate clearly both in spoken language and writing is essential. Flexibility and ability to adapt to change will be an inherent skill required in meeting needs.
The Carrdyke Federation is committed to safeguarding and the successful candidate will require a DBS check prior to starting the role.
