The post is linked to the funding for a SEND pupil and will cease as soon as the funding is no longer available.
The Governing Body of this popular primary school seek to appoint an excellent, enthusiastic, creative and motivated Teaching Assistant. The successful applicant will have a keen interest in predominantly working with a SEND pupil with complex needs in Year 1, mainly on a one to one basis in a classroom setting but sometimes in a group, during lunchtime and break times to model appropriate behaviour and encourage participation.
You will need to be wholly committed to becoming an integral member of our staff team and will:
• Have high expectations and a strong commitment to raising standards for a child with SEND
• Will make learning exciting, memorable and enjoyable
• Experience and a keen interest in supporting SEND pupils, including pupils with complex needs
• Fulfilment of the Durham County Council Grade 3 Job Description
Calculation of term time only plus two weeks’ pay
Term time only plus two additional weeks’ pay is calculated on the basis of the following:
• Number of ‘teaching’ weeks – 38 weeks; plus
• Public (bank) holidays – 1.6 weeks (8 days); plus
• Two additional weeks, inclusive of CPD – 2 weeks; plus
• Individual leave entitlement - 5.2 weeks (26 days) or 6.2 weeks (31 days)
Individual leave entitlement is calculated on the length of continuous service. Employees with less than 5 years’ service will receive 26 days annual leave. Employees with more than 5 years’ service will receive 31 days annual leave.
Calculation for employees with less than 5 years’ service:
40 weeks (term time plus 2) + 26 days (annual leave) + 8 days (public holidays) = 46.8 weeks’ pay, to be paid in 12 equal monthly instalments
Calculation for employees with more than 5 years’ service:
40 weeks (term time plus 2) + 31 days (annual leave) + 8 days (public holidays) = 47.8 weeks’ pay, to be paid in 12 equal monthly instalments
