Teaching Assistant (SEND)

St. Helens, Merseyside
This post is to start in July 2020 pending schools re-opening and is temporary until October half term in the first instance.

COVID-19 notice: We're continuing to recruit education staff throughout these unprecedented times, as we can still get you registered and cleared ready for when schools re-open. Instead of face to-face meetings, all interviews will be via phone and we can guide you through submitting your documents online.

We can offer you:
* A caring school environment with a creative curriculum;
* A friendly supportive team, where everyone's views are valued;
* Training and support for professional development;
* Enthusiastic, happy children who are eager to learn.

The role will involve:
* Working 1:1 and in small groups to provide support for additional needs, enhance development and facilitate inclusion;
* Liaising with parents, class teacher and the SENCO;
* Working in partnership with a range of external agencies;
* Facilitating the implementation of the child's EHCP.

We need people who:
* Have experience of supporting pupils with Autism and specific learning needs;
* Are resilient and able to cope with the physical demands that these posts will bring;
* Work in a calm, caring but firm and supportive manner;
* Can recognise that children need to develop independence to allow them to build on life skills.
