Five Education are working with a mainstream primary school in Clevedon and are looking for an experienced Learning Support Assistant to work with children who have Autism and/or SEN (Special Educational Needs). They are looking for candidates who have experience supporting children with SEND, SEMH and/or SpLD.
You would be working within a Key Stage 1 class in which part of the children will have additional needs including challenging behaviour and Autism, SpLD (ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Dyscalculia). This role is due to start in September 2021 and is 5 days a week, full-time position.
It is a small school with a dedicated and supportive staff team. A high percentage of their SEND pupils are identified as having SEND linked to Cognition and Learning issues (including maths, reading, writing and spelling) and a large proportion are identified as having SEND linked to SEMH (including ADHD - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, ADD - Attention Deficit Disorder, ASD - Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attachment Disorder and Anxiety).
Five Education is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all of the staff we employ to share this commitment. Successful applicants will be required to undergo checks including reference checks, TRA checks and will need to have a DBS; there will also be a face to face interview. Five Education do not believe in using umbrella bodies, we use PAYE and how this isn’t comparable with umbrella body pay and that there is no admin fee as with Umbrella bodies and Five Education pay employers national insurance on top of the salary. Please note pay rate is for illustration and does include holiday pay.
We welcome and encourage job applications from people of all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates as they are currently under-represented at this level.
