Job description
Special Educational Needs Teaching Assistant required in Aylesbury.

Protocol Education are seeking committed, reliable and passionate teaching assistants/LSA's to work in a special needs school which has a focus on Cerebral Palsy and/or PMLD.

Our roles require you to work 1:1 or lead small groups within SEND. The school strives to meet the diverse and individual needs of its pupils who have special education needs and disabilities. Students with special needs travel from all around Buckinghamshire to attend the school which provide education for those with Cerebral Palsy and complex needs. This school caters for students aged between 0-18 years of age; due to the needs of the students our schools like to encourage independence and life skills within the learning.

Your duties could include:
  • Assisting with pupils' physical needs, including hygiene and feeding, as well as assisting with therapy sessions
  • Helping with pupils' school work under the supervision of a SEND teacher
  • Helping pupils increase their confidence, self-esteem and independence
  • You will be responsible for promoting inclusion, working according to IEPs and advancing learning, allowing the children you will be working with to make positive progress by removing barriers to learning.

The successful candidates need to have previous experience of working with SEND students and have a strong desire of getting involved in every aspect of the school. Experience with children and young adults that have PMLD, SLD, ASD & MLD would be preferable.

Other experience & qualifications desirable:
  • Team Teach/MAPA qualified
  • Positive handling
  • Restorative justice
  • First Aid trained

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
