WBPS are looking to recruit an experienced TA to join our committed, enthusiastic and skilled team. The contract that is initially temporary is to support the learning needs of a child in Reception with complex needs. It is fixed until the end of the academic year when the pupil's needs will be reviewed. The role is for 5 lunchtimes and 3 afternoons with a total of 19 hours per week.
The selected applicant will ideally have previous SEN experience of dealing with children with complex needs, but we will consider applicants with more general experience working with children. There will be an element of personal care involved.
The successful candidate will:
Enable the child to access the learning experience of a mainstream classroom but will be able to intervene in a positive way when the child is unable to access the learning.
Have a positive outlook, be patient, friendly, and enthusiastic and have the ability to be flexible in order to meet the child's needs.
Deliver high quality personalised learning support on a one to one or group basis to enable the child to develop strategies to manage his emotions and develop social skills.
Enable the child to have a positive experience at lunchtime by encouraging the child to take part in organised activities and thereby encourage friendships.
Please note application forms to be handwritten, no online applications will be considered.
