Required for September

Salary Grade 15 (£9.78-£9.98ph)

27.9 hours per week (8.40am to 3.15pm), term time only

These posts are temporary subject to funding following the pupils.

Our OFSTED rated ‘Good’ school, is looking for four skilled 1:1 Learning Support Assistants working with children with special educational needs. 2 children in Foundation with ASD; 1 pupil in Year 4 with SEMH difficulties and one pupil in Year 5 with ASD.

We would like to hear from you if:

  • are an outstanding practitioner
  • have experience of working with children with complex needs
  • have experience of supporting pupils with intimate care plans
  • have experience of supporting pupils on the Autistic Spectrum
  • have a knowledge of how to support a pupil’s emotional needs as well as their academic development
  • are able to demonstrate a good use of initiative and responsibility to support pupils’ learning
  • are able to take on others ideas

Our curriculum is set up to explore learning through a hands-on approach that requires skilled professionals to have the ability to promote what is being seen as well as knowing the curriculum well enough to make connections with other areas of the curriculum at the same time; i.e. development of grammar through an investigation or the use of speech. Candidates need to also recognise the small steps that a child needs to take and how this is recorded as part of their Individual Learning Plan. This skilled role will enable a child to unlock their learning and become confident learners – a privileged position indeed.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  This post is subject to enhanced DBS disclosure and pre-employment checks will be undertaken before any post is confirmed.

Interested candidates are invited to call our Headteacher, Mr Graeme Wilson, to discuss the position and find out more about the school.  Please contact the school by email or call the school office on 01963 32132.  Application packs and further information are available from our school website: www.wincantonprimaryschool.co.uk/vacancies

Application forms should be returned to the Headteacher Mr. G. Wilson

by 9am on Thursday 30th June.   Interviews will be held on Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th July 2022.
