Teacher Assistant

  • SLD TA
  • January start
  • 'Good' Ofsted
  • 65-85 daily rate
  • Excellent on-site facilities
  • Sutton

I am currently working with a 'Good' SEN school that caters for primary and secondary aged students with SLD based in Sutton who are looking for a SLD Teacher Assistant to start in January on a full time basis. SLD Teacher Assistants work with 1 or 2 pupils on a daily basis providing individual assistance to ensure access to learning across the curriculum. As a SLD Teacher Assistant you will complete 1:1 support for students including assisting in personal care tasks (feeding, changing, toileting etc.). This SLD Teacher Assistant role would suit both experienced TAs from SEN schools or mainstream primary schools - experience supporting learners would be advantageous though not a necessity. The school look for their teacher assistants to have solid subject knowledge across the curriculum and ideally would like people who have an understanding of working with students with a range of complex needs.

We are looking for a primary SLD Teacher Assistant who:

  • Has had classroom based experience either in mainstream or SEN
  • Has experience supporting SLD students
  • Has the ability to work as part of a team, is keen to learn and work on own initiatives
  • Experience using PECs and Makaton (preferable but not essential)
  • Manual Handling training (desirable and can be offered at a later date)
  • Confident swimmer (lessons take place daily so this is a must)

As this in an all through school, there are 2 sites based 2 miles apart from each other - one that caters for primary students and one that cater for secondary students. The secondary site has a mix of PMLD, SLD and ASD on site from age 11 - 19 and each class is split based on the needs of the students, giving staff the opportunity to work across a range of age groups. They aim to create a happy learning environment that stimulates the students both academically and emotionally and have excellent facilities to manage this including a spa pool, discovery garden and soft play rooms.

If this sounds like the ideal role for you then send through your CV to be considered!
