Pastoral Primary School Teaching Assistant - Newham

Are you an enthusiastic, motivational and caring person who is keen to make a real difference to students?

As schools in Newham slowly start to re-open, they now face fresh challenges from students who have not been in school since the lockdown began. Understandably, this can lead to a lot of anxiety and concerns for students which will ultimately affect their ability to learn effectively.

Primary Schools across Newham will require extended pastoral support in order to make sure every student is cared for.

This role is supporting extremely vulnerable young people who will have felt the effects of this lockdown the most. These young people may have experienced adverse childhood experiences, toxic stress and trauma; they may be in foster care or living in children's homes all of which contributes to poor mental health and behavioural difficulties. This role is crucial in providing essential pastoral support to young people who may not be receiving that support in their own homes.

This role would be well suited for those who have experience in pastoral work, mentoring and prior experience with students with a range of additional needs.

This role will be starting in September and is likely to be for the whole academic year.
