My school in Warrington are looking to recruit a teaching assistant to help support the children and school alike.

The school have high standards and achieve this through a creative and fun curriculum but also by providing an environment where children feel safe and happy. Their children are eager to learn and they bring out the best in the teachers and teaching assistants. They are polite and courteous and these qualities are commented on by visitors to the school.

At this school they aim to foster a caring, sharing environment where a total commitment to equality and opportunities permeates the whole curriculum. Every member of the school community, pupils, parents, staff, governors and friends are welcome, valued and respected regardless of race, gender or disability.

The school value and celebrate the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all their pupils and families and celebrate together the British Values that underpin the school, the city and the country. One of their aims is to ensure that all of the children are equipped with the skills and attitudes to become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background.

Teaching Assistant Role

- Helping with schoolwork under the supervision of the teacher

- Preparing learning materials

- Encouraging children to be confident and independent

- Helping children understand instructions carrying out a child's care plan (education, social, behaviour and personal)

- Encouraging children to communicate

- Giving information and help to teachers

- Supporting children during social activities and outings

- Helping children during therapy sessions

- Recognising when children are upset and comforting them looking after children's physical needs

The successful teaching assistant will have worked in a mainstream or Sen school supporting children either on a one to one basis or worked with small groups! The Ideal teaching assistant will have worked with children with a diverse range of abilities and have been exposed to such things as IEP’s and compromised behavior!

You do not necessarily need to have been a teaching assistant in the past.
