A school in North Leeds (LS19, Yeadon) are in need of someone to provide specialist 1-2-1 SEN support, beginning as soon as possible until the Christmas holidays.

A SEN TA is required for a year 4 child who has Autism, meaning she needs full-time support when in school. This involves both facilitating her learning in class and accompanying and supporting him if he needs to leave class from time to time. A 1-2-1 member of staff is required in addition to the class’s TA to provide more specialist and tailored support, where one class TA simply isn’t sufficient.

The school’s only absolute requirement is that the candidate is experienced and confident in providing 1-2-1 SEN support. This is because the child has to be taken from class quite regularly and the member of staff must be trusted to handle this appropriately. 1-2-1 support in any capacity such as specialist SEN provisions, PRUs, the care industry or behavioural support would therefore go a long way of assuring the school in this case. Any experience specific to Autism or supporting children at this very formative age would also be a significant bonus to any candidate’s application.

The role is full-time until at least Christmas, as the school have secured extra funding until at least then. At this point, the school will choose whether to extend the booking based on the effectiveness of the candidate. It is a 1-form entry primary rated as GOOD by Ofsted, and there is plenty of parking space available.

If you are interested in this role then please apply where indicated and Teaching Personnel will arrange interviews, then some trial shifts at the earliest possible opportunity.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualifications and training for this role. Please see faqs for details.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay. This advert is for a temporary position. In some cases, the option to make this role permanent may become available at a later date.
