From April, my South West London primary will be looking to take on two teaching assistants to support pupils within its SEN provision unit. The ideal candidates will have some previous experience of working with pupils with SEN – ASD, EBD, Global Delay etc... You should be looking to use this position as a springboard for your future career as an educational psychologist or teacher or SEN support staff.
The school you will be joining is OFSTED outstanding and is known locally for its excellent key stage two attainment and inclusive policy to teaching and learning. The percentage of pupils with English as an additional language is above 50% and pupils at this school outperform, for final KS2 attainment, other local pupils considerably.
This School is found in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea meaning it is very easily accessible from around London. The School is provided with state of the art facilities and resources to meet their student’s needs. This small one form entry Primary School is an ‘Outstanding’ Church of England School that ensures their students are put first and that their individual needs are met.
The school has a strong history of support pupils with special educational needs, particularly ASD (autism) and Speech and Language (SPLD). All pupils within its SEN provision unit are included in a mainstream class and are part of all areas of daily school life. Children within the school are made aware of autism and are excellent at showing empathy and understanding to pupils with the condition.
Inside its internal provision unit, the school has a range of experienced and graduate teaching assistants who support pupils in and outside of the classroom. Each pupil receives concentrated and focused support that is specific to their requirements.
To apply for this teaching assistant position you must have an interest in supporting pupils with special education needs in a mainstream setting. Experience of working with pupils with SEN is essential, but it is not essential that you have school based experience.
This teaching assistant position is due to start in April after the Easter half term and is full-time. If you feel you have the desired qualities and are looking for a new challenge please forward your CV.
