Fixed term contract until 31 August 2020.

Required ASAP.

This post is to work with a child in Reception who will need support in all areas of the curriculum.

You will be expected to support this child during continuous provision and also to deliver specific intervention support individually and in small groups. During class-based sessions, you will be expected to help facilitate the child's involvement and to also manage his behaviour / interaction.

  • Ability to be flexible and adjust your approach depending upon the situation
  • Be able to use your initiative to adapt activities to facilitate engagement, with the support of the class teacher
  • A positive but firm approach to behaviour management, with the ability to focus upon the positive outcomes
  • Experience of supporting speech development would be beneficial
  • Ability to work as part of a large team
  • Ability to communicate effectively with a range of stakeholders is imperative.

Please address these in your application.
