The successful applicant will be working in a medium-sized primary school with a large and well-resourced SEN provision.

The successful SEN Teaching Assistant will be helping the children reintegrate to their age-appropriate mainstream class.

Applicants should be exceptional communicators and strong team-players, able to fit in well with the supportive staff-team at the school. We are looking for a pro-active and enthusiastic SEN Teaching Assistant who can bring to the post lots of ideas and a passion for working with SEN children.
