An exciting opportunity has arisen for a hardworking, passionate and committed learning support assistant to join our team. We are seeking to appoint a motivated and inspirational individual who is committed to ensuring every child succeeds at our large two form entry school with attached Nursery. The position is currently in one of our Reception classes and is linked to EHCP needs, providing both individual and small group support under the direction of the class teachers. The successful candidate would progress through the school as the year group enters the subsequent academic year. Experience in supporting children with complex learning needs who are working significantly below their chronological age is desirable but not essential, and this role may involve intimate care.
The ideal candidate will be someone who is patient, child-centered, and able to handle developmental behaviour effectively and efficiently. An awareness of the Early Years Curriculum would be beneficial in order to plan for next steps in learning as well as being able to address targets outlined on the Education Health and Care Plan. The chosen candidate will liaise closely with year group staff as well as external agencies, reporting back to parents on a regular basis.
Seabridge Primary School is an academy within the Shaw Education Trust www.shaw-education.org.uk, made up of primary, secondary and special schools, as well as a further education setting and a SCITT. We work alongside one another to support the most positive outcomes for all pupils across the Trust, and are committed to the continued professional development of all members of staff.
Our Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to undergo appropriate child protection screening, including an enhanced DBS check.
We offer access to The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) as a valuable part of the pay and reward package for all non-teaching employees working within Shaw Education Trust in addition to healthcare benefits through our staff insurance provider.
We are unable to offer visits to the school in the current climate and would encourage you to view our website and social media platforms to gain further insight into our school. If you would like an informal discussion about working for the Shaw Education Trust, please contact: 01782 432530 to arrange a call with Mrs Harrison, our Head Teacher.
