We require two experienced Learning Assistants to work with specific students with additional needs.  Please note one post is a vacancy for a male Learning Assistant to help with toileting of a male student (This post is exempt under Schedule 9 para. 1 of the Equality Act 2010).

The successful candidates will be required to:

  • Have good Numeracy/Literacy/Communication Skills

  • Be aware of and respond appropriately to the student’s individual needs
  • Provide one to one support within the classroom, enabling access to learning
  • Be aware of and comply with school policies relating to child protection, health & safety, confidentiality and data protection
  • It would be desirable for the candidates to have an appropriate qualification – i.e. NVQ Level 2 for Teaching Assistants

The posts are subject to external funding and will, therefore, be subject to review when the funding ceases or the student leaves the school.

These posts are subject to a satisfactory Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) Enhanced Disclosure Certificate.
