Full Time, Term Time Only
Fixed term contract until 31/08/2022
Weddington Primary School is looking to recruit a number of 1-1 Teaching Assistants to join our fabulous team and contribute towards delivering an inspirational education for our children. We are looking for resourceful, compassionate and caring practitioners who can work 1:1 with a child with additional needs and/or challenging behaviour. The role requires a starting time of 8.30am, for meet and greet, and a finish at 3.30pm for a calm ‘end of day’ routine.
The successful applicants should be passionate about their role and be excellent communicators. They will need to have excellent behaviour management strategies and be able to show resilience and perseverance with hard to reach pupils.
As a member of our school, you will be supported by an amazing team who care enormously about the children and always have their best interest at heart. Our staff are kind, caring and have an amazing sense of humour; we are all in this together and you will be made to feel welcome and appreciated for the essential role that you will play.
Experience/training in any of the following areas would be an advantage but is not essential: diabetes, ASD, Makaton, PECs, Downs Syndrome, intimate care/toileting and leading interventions.
