Job description
We are currently recruiting on behalf of a lovely C of E school in the London borough of Hounslow, in Feltham close to the Surrey boarder. There are good transport links to the school and also there is access to parking close by.

The role is for an Early Years Learning Support Assistant to work with children who need additional help. The School is larger than average and so as an LSA your role is vital in supporting the Teacher, working 1:1 with students who may have additional needs as well as taking groups supporting with Literacy and Numeracy so a good level of education in those areas is essential and experience working with Phonics as well as the early years curriculum is desired.

The type of personality that makes a good learning support assistant is someone that is supportive, non-judgemental, patient, easy to talk to, positive and flexible. You must be able to speak to the pupils in your care in a manner which encourages and supports them. You will be expected to have experience working with children in a similar setting and as working with different groups of pupils, including disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, as well as those for whom English is an additional language is a large part of the role, this must be something that you feel fully comfortable with. The school prides itself on the fact that these types of students make good and sometimes excellent, progress. This is due to high quality individual support programmes, carefully planned to meet their needs for which your role as an LSA will be a big part of.

Your role will mainly be classroom based, although some day to day work may include some administrative tasks, especially during certain times of the school year when end of term reports are due. The job is term-time, working the same hours as qualified teachers, usually starting at 08.00 or 08.30 and finishing around 15.30 or 16.00, depending on whether or not there are additional meetings, training courses or projects to be completed.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in then please do apply so we can talk to you further about your experience and the role.

Please note: We undertake safeguarding checks on all our workers in accordance with the DfE statutory guidance 'Keeping Children Safe in Education'. As part of these checks, we require a current Enhanced DBS Disclosure for everyone working in schools. If you do not have a valid subscription to the DBS Update Service, we will require you to complete a new DBS application as part of the registration process, at a cost of £44.00.
