We are looking to appoint a temporary SEN Teaching Assistant to join our team. (There is a possibility the post could be extended)

The position requires a patient, positive and caring individual who can provide curriculum and medical support for a Year 2 child.

Any previous experience of working with children with significant learning/medical difficulties would be highly beneficial.

The school offers a friendly and welcoming environment, and is very supportive.

 To be part of our team you will ideally need:

  • To be cheerful, positive and enthusiastic about working with children

  • Have a general awareness of SEN issues and how to effectively support SEN pupils

  • Possess good literacy and numeracy skills
  • Be able to build and maintain effective relationships with parents
  • Be committed to working a part of team under the guidance of the SENCo

You will be expected to work in partnership and liaise with external agencies to support the child’s learning and development.

At Rise Park Academy Trust we pride ourselves on our kind, supportive and caring environment and we provide excellent opportunities for our staff to specialise in areas of SEN learning support.
