Farsley Farfield Primary School


We are looking to recruit full-time Learning Support Assistants to support children with SEND to work at our exciting school.  We have a great mix of children, a strong and supportive 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 require skilled and enthusiastic LSAs who can support teaching and learning and address the personal and individual needs of our pupils. You will need to be a good communicator, cheerful, calm, resilient and able to work as part of a team. Ideally, you will be qualified to at least NVQ2 in a relevant area and have some experience of working in a primary school. Experience and expertise of working with children with communication difficulties, medical issues, SEMH needs or on the autistic spectrum will be advantageous in these roles.  The roles currently on offer may include a child in our Foundation Stage and children in Year 4.

The roles are temporary for one year in the first instance subject to a successful 6 month probationary period and will be paid on Band B1. The hours of work will be 8.30-3.30 Mon-Fri, 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.

You are welcome to attend an online meeting with the Head Teacher and SENDCO to find out more about the school and roles and ask any questions you may have. This is planned for Monday 21st September at 4.30pm. 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 25th September 2020. If you are successful in the short-listing process, you will be invited to attend an interview on Tuesday 6th October 2020.  Please note: this is likely to be a remote interview.

We promote diversity and want a workforce which reflects the population of Leeds. The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of our pupil and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring check and satisfactory references.
