Job Type: Temporary

Salary: £10 / hourly

A wonderful opportunity for a primary Teaching Assistant to support pupils with additional needs. 

  • Full time (school hours)
  • Working within Key Stage 1 and 2
  • Immediate starts and January positions
  • £10 an hour


Teaching Personnel are working with SEN Schools across Somerset, who are looking for Teaching Assistants to join their team. The schools can cater for pupils aged 5-12 years with Autism, Moderate to Severe Learning Difficulties (MLS & SLD) and Complex needs. The schools follow the National Curriculum and run similarly to a mainstream primary school, with small class sizes of around 6-8 pupils.

You will be working as a class-based Teaching Assistant. This will involve supporting the teacher with the lessons and helping pupils with their work. You will also be required to support children on a 1-1 basis and will be responsible for behaviour management and providing emotional support. 

The ideal candidate will be an enthusiastic, pro-active person who has a real passion for supporting children with special needs. Experience in a school setting is not required, but you should have some experience working with children or adults with special needs.
