St Edmund’s Catholic Primary SchoolTeaching Assistant SEND
Teaching Assistant: 32.5 hrs per week
Salary: Grade 3 Point 7 (£22,369 pro rata)
St Edmund's Catholic Primary School is expanding its team of teaching assistants who will be part of new SEND unit (The Nest) which opened in September 2022. We wish to appoint caring, enthusiastic assistants who will be able to support the learning of individuals and small groups of pupils with Special Educational Needs and disabilities. Previous experience of working with children who sometimes demonstrate challenging behaviour in an educational setting is essential and knowledge of Makaton and Elklan would be an advantage. The post will also include some additional lunchtime supervision and may include cover for breakfast or afterschool club.
You will join a team of experienced teaching assistants who are supported by the unit lead, head of school, SENDco and Speech Therapist. Professional development and training are provided regularly.
