Teaching Assistant L3

Rowan School is a special school for primary aged children who have complex speech, language and communication difficulties.  All their children have an autistic spectrum profile and some present challenging behaviours.

The school is looking to appoint a temporary teaching assistant level 3 who enjoys working with children and working in a team alongside classroom staff. The post involves lunchtime supervision and support in the classroom.

This post requires taking an interest in each child, encouraging their development and ensuring their safety.  Candidates need to have calm, friendly and positive approaches.

Previous experience of working with children with Special Educational Needs e.g. Autism is preferred although training in relevant learning/behaviour strategies will be provided as necessary.  Candidates should be willing to take responsibility for basic care and hygiene as part of their duties and be able to demonstrate a commitment to being part of a caring school community.
