Job Published: 11 days ago
We are currently working with a number of SEND schools who are looking to appoint LSA's for a variety of day-to-day, short term and long term bookings around Hillingdon.

Special Needs Teaching Assistants support students with special educational needs (SEN) in the classroom as directed by an SEN teacher in order to help pupils succeed with their learning.

Class sizes can be as small as 3/4 pupils and there is a high ratio of LSA support.

There may be pupils at the high end of the autism spectrum, SLD, behavioural difficulties or challenging behaviour. Ability levels can vary considerably, so you need to be able to think on your feet. You'll be working with other professionals within the school eg. a nurse, physiotherapist, speech and language therapist's.

Your main duties will include:
• Inspiring and engaging with pupils
• Assessing individual learning needs and working on a group basis.
• Preparing materials, equipment and lessons
• Assessing and reporting on individual pupils' progress
• Assisting with the personal care needs of pupils; this may include feeding, changing and manual handling.
• Liaising with parents, carers and professionals such as mainstream teachers, education welfare officers, social workers and Health care professionals

Successful Applicants will be subject to references and an up to date DBS or be willing to apply for a Protocol DBS.
