SEND Teaching Assistant

Enfield, London
The role will continue for the full academic year in July 2021, possibly longer.

The school is seeking an experienced teaching assistant, who has recent experience of working with children with ASD. The role will involve 1:1 support for a Y6 pupil with Autism and your time will be split between working in-class and also in a support area. The Headteacher at the school likes to give staff variety wherever possible, so there may be some general teaching assistant work as well.

The child has made good progress in Year 5 before lockdown and spends an increasing amount of time in class now. There are occasions when he can find school frustrating, so you will be spending some time working away from the classroom. He works well with someone calm, firm but fair and who is able to adaspt his interests to help him engage in school work.
This will be a really interesting, varied role. There will be some challenges but it will be very rewarding.

Your hours of work will be 8.30am- 3:45pm with 30 minutes for lunch, with a daily rate of £70- £80, depending on experience.

The school is well served by public transport.
