Enhanced Teaching Assistant
Grade 6 £22,129 - £24,920 pro rata
Required as soon as possible

The Governors of The North and South West Durham Learning Federation are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, motivated Teaching Assistant to support a KS2 pupil with complex needs and learning difficulties

The position is dependent on the linked child remaining at our school and / or retaining their additional funding. If the child leaves our school or the funding is withdrawn, then the position will end.

We are looking for a Teaching Assistant who:

• Understands the needs of pupils with SEND
• Is confident in supporting pupils who present behavioural challenges
• Can empathise with and support pupils with emotional difficulties
• Adapt their approach to motivate and engage pupils
• Has high expectations of achievement
• Is committed to working alongside teaching staff to raise standards within a broad and balanced curriculum.
• Is willing to contribute and work effectively as part of a team.
We can offer:
• Happy, enthusiastic children who enjoy coming to school to learn.
• A highly motivated and caring staff, committed to the further development of our school.
• The support of a committed Governing Body
• An active role in contributing to the shared vision of our school.
Visits to our school are warmly welcomed and encouraged; please contact the School Office for an appointment.

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
