We are supporting them with the recruitment of a Special Needs Support Assistant to support children on a 1:1 basis. Your role will involve supporting a child with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). You will be working alongside the teacher, SENCo as well as liaising with external speech and language therapists. You will be based within the classroom and therefore part of your role will be assisting more generally within the class to help those children needing general support within the classroom, through targeted interventions. This is a vital and rewarding position where you will be offering the best possible support to this child to enable them to fully access the curriculum and get the most out of their time at school.
Initially offered as a maternity cover, this position is to start after the Easter holidays. You will be expected to work between 8:30-4 with a half hour lunch break.

We are looking for someone with a kind nature and positive and nurturing approach to learning. Ideally you will have experience of working with young people with ASD or other Special Educational Needs and Disabilities SEND, and therefore be familiar with some of the tools and strategies to support effectively. We are open to consider transferable skills and experience as the most important quality we are looking for is passion and knowledge for working with children with ASD.

If you are interested in this position, then please apply with your up to date CV including a statement on why you would be right for this position. The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. After application if you are suitable for this or any of our positions you will need to undertake a short registration process which will involve references and DBS check if you don't already possess one registered to the online update service.
