A client in Sutton, rated as 'good' overall, with an 'outstanding' judgement for behaviour and safety, in their most recent Ofsted is looking for a new Teaching Assistant for Autism to join their team in September 2019.

This beautiful school, set in impressive grounds with ample resources and a newly approved application for a new school building extension, caters for pupils between the ages of 7 and 19 who have moderate learning difficulties and a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder.

This is a very special school with approx. 240 students, instilling a unique family ethos. Their curriculum is really different too; the lower school students have enrichment activities including rock climbing, swimming, horse riding and a huge range of sports. All their Upper School students take option subjects to enrich their learning and they have just started delivering a new A-Level Photography course which is very exciting.

*Promote the inclusion of all pupils and encourage pupils to interact with others and engage in activities led by the teacher
*Set challenging and demanding expectations and promote self-esteem and independence
*Provide feedback to pupils in relation to progress, achievement and pastoral care under the guidance of the teacher

Additional requirements of the successful teaching Assistant for Autism are to;
*Create and maintain a purposeful, orderly and supportive environment, in accordance with lesson plans and assist with the display of pupils' work
*Use strategies, in liaison with the teacher, to support pupils to achieve learning goals
*Assist with the planning of learning activities
*Monitor pupils' responses to learning activities and accurately record achievement/progress as directed
*Provide detailed and regular feedback to teachers on pupils' achievement, progress and pastoral development
*Promote good pupil behaviour, dealing promptly with conflict and incidents in line with established policy and encourage pupils to take responsibility
*Establish constructive relationships with parents/carers
*Administer routine tests, invigilate exams and undertake routine marking of pupils' work as required
*Provide clerical/admin support e.g. photocopying, typing, filing etc.

There will be additional training offered alongside learning activities and performance development - all jobs are reviewed annually.
