We are looking to appoint a SEN Teaching Assistant who is outgoing, enthusiastic and a flexible member of support staff to join our well regarded, successful and supportive team.

The SEN Teaching Assistant will work under the guidance of teaching/senior staff and within an agreed system of supervision, to implement agreed work programmes with a named student, in or out of the classroom. This could include those requiring detailed and specialist knowledge in particular areas and will involve assisting the teacher in the whole planning cycle and the management/preparation of resources. You may also supervise whole classes occasionally during the short-term absence of teachers. The primary focus will be to maintain good order and to keep a named student on task and respond to questions and generally assist a named student to undertake set activities.
