2 Positions available. Level 2- fixed term contract (one would be for 12 weeks in the first instance, but likely to be extended. The other would be for 6 weeks in the first instance, but likely to be extended.)

We are a supportive and caring mainstream primary school in Stockton that welcomes all children.

What this will involve
You will be working as a teaching Assistant, supporting primary aged pupils who have SEMH difficulties. You will be involved in creating a smooth transition for children into what is likely to be their new setting. You will be responsible for supporting them throughout their school day as well as supporting other children in small groups. You will help the children to progress socially and academically by working closely with a supportive and experienced SEMH team, as well as other school staff. You will be expected to feedback to both the class teacher and SENCO about the child's progress and general wellbeing.

What you will need to succeed
You will ideally hold a Level 2 teaching assistant qualification or higher. You will have experience of working with and supporting younger children with SEN in a school setting. You will have experience of providing support for SEN children and be confident in meeting their needs. You will have an understanding of the National Curriculum. Ideally you will have an understanding of issues surrounding SEMH children and have good behaviour management skills. Most importantly you will have a passion for working with children with additional needs and be a positive and enthusiastic team player.
