Teaching Assistant (medical)

Are you looking for an exciting new challenge to support a child with medical needs in a happy and inclusive environment?

We are looking to recruit a full-time Teaching Assistant to work at our fantastic school.  We have a great mix of children, a strong and welcoming staff team and we have a very good reputation for the inclusion of children with special needs, including a number on the autistic spectrum. We have a supportive parent body and huge grounds to make creative use of. We had another very positive Ofsted inspection in March 2018.

We are looking to recruit a caring and reliable Teaching Assistant who can support a child with significant medical needs.  Ideally, you will have experience of working within a medical or caring environment or doing a similar role within a school setting. All training will be provided by the Community Nursing Team but some experience of working with children with significant medical needs would be helpful. On this occasion, skills, experience and qualifications around the broader role of Teaching Assistant may not be essential.

The role is permanent subject to a successful 6-month probationary period and you will be paid on scale B3 Pts 7-11 (£10.41 – £11.27 p/h). Your hours of work will be 8.30-3.30 Mon-Fri, with 30 minutes for lunch, term time only.  You will not routinely be expected to work Teacher Training Days, but may be invited to do so on occasion and be paid overtime.

Given the amount of training that will go with this role, we are looking for a candidate that can commit to this role in the medium to long term. This post is not suitable for someone looking to move onto other things in the near future.

You are welcome to attend an online meeting with the Head Teacher and SENDCO to find out more about the school and role and ask any questions you may have. This is planned for Friday 8th October at 4.00pm. If you would like to join the meeting, please email the school office for the link.

The closing date for applications is noon on the Thursday 14th October 2021. If you are successful in the short-listing process, you will be invited to attend an interview on Monday 1st November 2021.

Senior Learning Mentor

Opportunities like this don’t come very often…

Fabulous Farsley Farfield Primary School is looking to recruit a Senior Learning Mentor to lead a small team providing pastoral, emotional and family support to our children and school community. This role is a family-friendly 23 hours per week and those hours can be fulfilled flexibly across at least three days term time only (until 5pm on at least one day).  The role is permanent subject to a successful 6-month probationary period and you will be paid on scale C3 Pts 19-22 (£13.21 – £14.02 p/h).

We are looking for someone that has relevant experience of working with children in a school or family support environment. Ideally, that person would be qualified and experienced in Child Protection and Early Help. You will be a good communicator and show that you are able to relate positively to adults and children alike. A strong candidate will be able to clearly evidence positive outcomes for children and families from their work. You will provide line management to two colleagues in a full time equivalent Assistant Learning Mentor role across our split site.

If you have a strong track record of successful outcomes for vulnerable or disadvantaged children and families, and are looking for a new challenge, this post might be the opportunity you have been looking for…
