Temporary Higher Level Teaching Assistant
Grade 7 £23,541 – £27,041 pro rata
Required from 1st September 2021 until 18th February 2022

The Headteacher and Governors are seeking to appoint a qualified HLTA, who will have dual roles working with an SEN pupil and as PPA cover, for a maternity cover.

The successful candidate must be adaptable and flexible and have experience of working with SEN children as well as taking whole classes in a variety of foundation subjects, mostly, but not exclusively, in KS2. Candidates may have particular subject strengths, which they can offer as a specialism to the post and should promote these in their application.

We are looking for someone who has a proven record of good behaviour management and ability to teach a range of age groups in a lively and engaging way. They must be able to follow the school's ethos, vision, policies and procedures well, to enable consistency across the school.

Where our roles are customer facing and you are required to speak to members of the public, the ability to converse at ease with customers and provide advice in accurate spoken English is essential for the post. As a disability confident employer, we are committed to employing disabled people and people with health conditions making reasonable adjustments to support disabled applicants when required.

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.
For example:

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
