Sussex Learning Trust Grade 3
(£15,997-£17,625 pro rata
5 days per week – term time only – to include some lunch cover

Actual Salary: £10,746 - £11,840

Fixed term until the end of the Summer Term 2019

A vacancy has arisen for a one to one TA within our lovely school, working in Year R, commencing as soon as possible.  Northlands Wood entered into a new phase of being an Academy nearly two years ago, so this is an exciting time to join our inclusive and child-centred school.  We pride ourselves on our whole-child ethos, promoting Learning Skills, Emotional Literacy, Attitudes and Feelings. 

Our TAs support the learning of all children, including those with SEN.  If you believe that all children’s needs should be supported within a mainstream setting and you have the skills to support children’s learning and their wider wellbeing we would love to hear from you.

Like all schools, we need to work creatively to be able to offer the support children need as school budgets are squeezed.  We believe we can do this through a whole school passion for inclusion and collaborative and solution-focussed problem-solving.  If you can contribute to this work we can reward you with a real sense of success as well as a sense of team work and belonging. 

You should be comfortable working with children from 4-11 and have the necessary subject knowledge to support children with reading, writing and maths up to the level required at Foundation Stage/Key Stage 1.  Usually this will be a minimum of a GCSE or equivalent in Maths and English.  You should have experience working with children in a school setting.  A relevant qualification is desirable.

You should be willing to undertake any necessary training to enable you to carry out your role effectively and a First Aid/Paediatric First Aid qualification is desirable.
