Job description
We are currently seeking an experience SEND TA to work in the Reception Class of a Lovely school in the Feltham area. You will be mainly supporting 1 student who has ASD so we are looking for someone who ideally has experience in this area or who has a passion for SEND. We need someone who can help to build structure and routine for the child , provide excellent levels of communication with the ability to offer clear and concise guidance. You must be firm and have excellent behaviour management. However it is important that you also have a calm and patient demeanour in order to work well within the class and a whole and ensure that the child is able to do the same.

The School we are working with provides high quality early years education for children aged 3 - 5 years in both their Nursery and Reception Classes. They provide a stimulating, well resourced, happy and secure environment that meets the very varied needs of each child. They offer all children an equal opportunity to become happy and confident, and to enjoy learning. Their approach to education is child-centred. They hold a strong ethos that young children learn best when they are playing. The school prides themselves on being able to provide and environment where the children play and explore and learn through a range of fun, practical experiences, some initiated by themselves, others adult directed.

The Nursery and Reception classes are bright and welcoming. They are predominantly open plan, providing lots of space for a wide range of equipment and activities. The outside area is used by both the nursery and reception children. It has both open and covered areas to enable the children to be outside in all weathers, all year round.

For the role it is important that you have a strong understanding of the curriculum and the 6 areas of learning and how this can be differentiated and made accessible to the child you will be working with. There are daily phonics sessions, so this is something that we would need you to be confident in, in order to support the Teacher with group work as there also may be opportunities within your role to take groups and support other students with their learning.

This will also be the case for Mathematical Development where you will be supporting to ensure that the children experience a range of practical activities to help develop their early mathematical knowledge and understanding of; number, calculating, shape and space, pattern, position, money, data and measures (time, weight, length, capacity).

Children learn through their senses and therefore it is vital that they are given time and opportunities to explore and experiment with ideas, materials, tools and techniques. They develop their own ideas through art, music, dance, role play and stories, experimenting with colour, design and texture and its so important that all children within the class including the child you will be working with is able to access learning both in the classroom and outside if it.

We are looking for someone who has the proven ability to make a difference to a child's development and therefore we have the highest safeguarding standards, therefore references will be checked and a DBS on the update service must be in place.

If you are interested in this or any other similar roles then please do get in touch

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.
