The Head Teacher and SENCo of a primary school in the PR5 area of Preston are on the look out for a Support Assistant to provide 1:1 support to a pupil in Year 4. This role will be five days per week (Monday-Friday 08:30-15:15) from 22nd February 2021.
The child you will be supporting may struggle to engage in their learning and would benefit from 1:1 support from a practitioner who has experience of working along-side 'hard to reach' pupils. Candidates with experience of differentiating activities and lessons to suit children working below age-related expectations are welcome to apply. This is a new role in school and could materialise into a long-term position working alongside this child until they leave school in Year 6.
This school boasts excellent facilities and resources for staff and the Head Teacher encourages support staff to attend whole school CPD alongside the Class Teachers in order to upskill. This is an excellent opportunity for a candidate with a support worker background or possibly a candidate with experience of working within an inner-city catchment area.
Following the appointment of the successful candidate in February, the role will continue until July 2021 on a temporary basis and will be reviewed following the Easter break with the view for the candidate to transition onto a permanent position in school from September 2021. This is a new and exciting opportunity in school and the Head Teacher welcomes applications from candidates at all levels in their careers. Following the appointment, the Head Teacher will arrange a meeting with the Y4 class teacher to discuss planning and the child's interests to ensure for a successful transition. The Head Teacher of this busy school is well respected both in school and within the wider community, therefore staffing requirements at this school rarely arise. This is an excellent opportunity and is not to be missed!
