An exciting opportunity has arisen for a hardworking, professional 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. 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.
