The Head Teacher and Governors wish to appoint a motivated and committed Teaching Assistant to support a pupil with cochlea implants within Y3. The successful candidate will also be required to support him and small groups of pupils with their learning. L2 British sign language is essential and experience of supporting SEN pupils would be an advantage. We are looking for a good team player who is able to work well as part of a supportive staff, as well as having an ability to foster excellent working relationships with children. Our school environment is a very caring, nurturing one and we value and celebrate the achievements of every child. We take pride in our church school ethos.

• Have excellent written and oral communication skills
• Be flexible and confident in supporting children’s learning in a classroom setting

What we can offer:
• Happy and welcoming pupils, staff, governors and parents
• Pupils with good behaviour and a thirst for knowledge
• A warm, supportive environment in which to work, learn and develop
• Opportunity to work in collaboration with other schools and be part of the establishment of the Dales Academies Trust
• A chance to be part of a caring, Christian environment with exciting visions for the future

The successful candidate will become part of a team that is enthusiastically driving the schools forward and building upon their achievements and strengths. We are a warm, inclusive family school with a strong Christian ethos, a sense of community and a commitment to excellence for all children in our care.
