Teaching and Learning Assistant - ARP
Fixed term until 31 August 2023
30 hours per week, term-time plus one training day
Band 2: £18,562 - £18,933 per annum pro rata

Effective support for students with special educational needs and/or disabilities is a key priority across the Seaton Valley Federation of Schools in order to help all students to achieve their full potential. This role is within a team of experienced Teaching and Learning Assistants who will be supporting children in Astley Community High School and Whytrig Middle School based within our new ASD ARP. As our student numbers increase we are looking to add to our team.

Working under the direction of the ARP Lead and SENCo you will have a track record of supporting students to achieve their targets, supporting the delivery of high quality, accessible curriculum and ensuring that all children have the support to reach their full potential. You will ideally also have 5 A*-C grades at GCSE level (or equivalent) including English and Maths and hold a Teaching Assistant or Special Needs Support qualification with experience of supporting students with ASD. You will also need to be able to form effective relationships with students, staff, parents and fellow professionals.

The pupils who attend the ARP are expected to attend mainstream lessons for the majority of their timetable and use the ARP for specific interventions delivered by highly experienced staff. The expectation is that those accessing the ARP will engage in full time mainstream education, the Teaching and Learning Assistants will be integral in supporting this.

This role will be working five days per week, term-time plus one training day at the start of the school year. It is expected that your initial working hours will be Monday and Wednesday 8.40am to 3.15pm and Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 8.50am to 3.15pm, with a 15 minute morning break and 35 minute lunch break each day, although this working pattern may change from time to time to meet the operational needs of the schools.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment. An enhanced criminal records check is required for this post.

Interested in applying? A completed application form and criminal records declaration form must be submitted by 9am on Sunday 31st October by e-mail to vacancies@svf.org.uk

Please indicate clearly the title ‘Teaching and Learning Assistant - ARP’ in the subject field of your email.
