If so, and you can demonstrate that you are passionate about maximising our SEN children’s learning potential, then this role could be for you.
We are looking to appoint an experienced Additional Needs Teaching Assistant to work with children with special needs throughout the school.
You will be a qualified and experienced Additional/Special Needs Teaching Assistant who has recent experience within a primary school and a strong working knowledge of the primary and early years curriculums.

Your previous experience of supporting similar pupils will help your understanding and confidence in supporting a child and their family in overcoming barriers to their learning.
We are a large 643 place primary (which includes 32 children in our 2 year old unit and 78 in our 3 year old nursery), with a rich ethnic mix of delightful and well-behaved children. Our modern school has recently been refurbished and extensively extended and sits in large attractive grounds. We pride ourselves in our caring ethos and the value we place in our dedicated and friendly staff teams. We are a popular school, and have a waiting list for most year groups.
