We are looking to appoint a Teaching Assistant who has experience working with children with a range of special educational needs. The role is predominantly working as a 1:1 Teaching Assistant but some group work may be required.

The role involves supporting children with complex physical, sensory or learning and development needs. Experience delivering speech therapy plans an advantage. Any experience using visual timetables, PECs, Makaton, positive handling training and knowledge implementing behaviour management strategies will prove advantageous. There will be a requirement to provide toileting and intimate care support.

Whilst you will be expected to work under the direction of the class teacher you will also have the ability to use your own initiative to organise tasks and activities; creating simple resources to support the pupil's work as appropriate. You will work closely with the class teacher and the School's SENCO as well as working in partnership with external contacts to support learning and development.

We are looking for a person who is calm, kind, patient and who:

  • is cheerful, positive and enthusiastic about working with children
  • is experienced in supporting pupils with learning difficulties
  • is an effective communicator with pupils and staff
  • is able to build and maintain effective relationships
  • is committed to working as part of a team

Remedy pride ourselves on our kind, supportive and caring environment and we provide excellent opportunities for our candidates to specialise in areas of SEN learning support. The position is subject to an enhanced Criminal Records Bureau disclosure check. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.
