Job description
An SEN school in Newham that caters for learners with a range of physical, learning, social and communication needs are looking for a selection of Learning Support Assistants that hold a 'Team Teach' qualification. Many of their young people have conditions that co-exist, overlap and interlock creating a complex profile.

The school are proud of their aims and values which are firmly built on mutual respect and enabling everyone to develop as an individual. These values are reflected in their everyday interactions, activities and policies. It is through the support the school gives to each other that they establish respect, friendship, a sense of belonging and effective team work. All of their staff team are experienced and committed to excellence in teaching, learning and pastoral care.

Due to expansion of provision in the school they are looking to increase their number of teaching assistants as they believe that they are a valuable resource supporting and improving teacher led learning.

We would welcome applications from graduates who are looking to progress into a teaching career.

The Job:

The role would be to support the health, communication and cognitive learning of all students. The post is varied and consists of supporting teaching activities in the classroom and the community, as well as assisting with the changing and personal care requirements of some of the students. The work can involve manual handling and candidates need to be physically fit and capable of working co-operatively within a multi-disciplinary team. The post may also involve participating in swimming sessions to support students both in and out of the pool.

We are looking for candidates who can demonstrate:

• common sense,

• initiative

• integrity

• a willingness to learn

• positive interaction with others

• a “can do” attitude

• a strong working ethos

• life skills

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.
