This SEND School are recruiting for a Teaching Assistant to join thier Education team!  They are looking for versatile, resilient and committed Teaching Assistants, who can adapt their practice wherever necessary to support across all key stages. The successful candidate will work alongside the class teacher, assisting the children with their work and supporting with pupil behaviour while establishing good relationships with pupils, acting as a role model and responding to individual needs.

The successful candidate will have previous experience supporting in a classroom setting  or similar experience working in supported living or care.


Resilience – Support some of the most vulnerable children in society who have varying degrees of emotional behavioural difficulties, autism, ADHD and associated difficulties so there will be times where your resilience is challenged.  

Communication – Communicating with their young people is vital to understand their needs.  Good teamwork and communication play a key part in ensuring important information is relayed to other staff.

Organisation – Strong organisational skills are important to support the class teacher and young people with educational activities 

Caring – Their young people require the best care we can offer.  If you are a naturally caring and compassionate person, this is the role for you.

Attentive – No two tasks will be the same so being attentive to understand them and identify areas where we can support is important. 

Above all, they provide a supportive and collaborative working environment where you can flourish in your career and feel incredibly rewarded by helping those who need it most.
