I am seeking to appoint a proactive and passionate special needs Teaching Assistant with a proven track record working with Autistic students to join a fantastic small special school in the London Borough of Wandsworth. The school is for primary aged children with autism and SLCN. It is easily accessible from Clapham Junction and most of South and West London and boasts fantastic facilities as well as a highly regarded training and CPD scheme for staff. The school is massively oversubscribed with parents from all over London applying to get their children in due to the exceptional reputation it has for the quality of education and care it offers.

The school provides for children with Autism (ASD/ASC) and Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD) working in a specilist environment. Your role will be to work as part of the TA team in class under the direction of the class teacher, you will be working alongside 2 other full time TAs who have a lot of specialist skills and training and know the class really well. The Headteacher has told me that it is a particularly good class to work in as the teacher and both TAs are very supportive and nurturing which would mean that you'd soon get to grips with PECS, Makaton and personal care tasks. The pupils are working at low levels and require support with things such as communication, feeding, changing, toileting, staying on task as well as normal class based TA tasks. Personal care will involve changing nappies and this is not a negotiable part of the role - if you are unwilling to do this please do not apply.

This is a really lovely rewarding class of 8 pupils who whilst they can occasionally be difficult are on the whole friendly, fun, sweet, engaging and very rewarding to work with. You will also benefit from working in a school that will invest heavily in your personal development and pay a competitive salary. There is also a good social side to the school with a number of fun social activities run each year.
