Grade 3, £18,933 - £19,698 pro rata
37 hours (8:30am – 4:30pm)
Required as soon as possible

We are looking to appoint an appropriately skilled individual to take on the role of teaching assistant to provide support for a pupil with SEND.

The post is linked to the funding for a SEND pupil and will cease as soon as the funding is no longer available.

The person appointed must:
• demonstrate excellent communication skills
• have a caring and empathetic nature
• be able to establish effective relationships with pupils and their families
• have high expectations and a strong commitment to raising standards of children with SEND
• Have experience and/or a keen interest in supporting SEND pupils.

Full details of the post are included in the job description.

Application forms should be returned to the school.

Calculation of term time only plus two weeks’ pay

Term time only plus two additional weeks’ pay is calculated on the basis of the following:
• Number of ‘teaching’ weeks – 38 weeks; plus
• Public (bank) holidays – 1.6 weeks (8 days); plus
• Two additional weeks, inclusive of CPD – 2 weeks; plus
• Individual leave entitlement - 5.2 weeks (26 days) or 6.2 weeks (31 days)
Individual leave entitlement is calculated on the length of continuous service.
Employees with less than 5 years’ service will receive 26 days annual leave.
Employees with more than 5 years’ service will receive 31 days annual leave.
For example:

Calculation for employees with less than 5 years’ service:
40 weeks (term time plus 2) + 26 days (annual leave) + 8 days (public holidays) = 46.8 weeks’ pay, to be paid in 12 equal monthly instalments

Calculation for employees with more than 5 years’ service:
40 weeks (term time plus 2) + 31 days (annual leave) + 8 days (public holidays) = 47.8 weeks’ pay, to be paid in 12 equal monthly instalments

Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. The appointment will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring check (formally enhanced CRB), medical checks and satisfactory references.

Durham County Council is an equal opportunities employer. We want to develop a more diverse workforce and we positively welcome applications from all sections of the community. Applicants with disabilities will be interviewed if the essential job criteria are met.

This post is not open to job share.
