A two form entry primary school based in Kensington are looking for experienced SEND Teaching Assistant to start ASAP.
The school requires an experienced teaching assistant with special education experience. The successful teaching assistant will be predominately working with children with Autism (ASD) and will be working on a 1:1 basis as well as with small groups across different year groups. The children require support with learning, but also with everyday activities in school, so experience with children on the autistic spectrum is essential. Many of the pupils are non-verbal, and the children are in years 1 and 2.
You must meet the following criteria to be considered for this role:
" Experience with children with SEND (Autism/ASD)
" Excellent communication skills(you will be dealing with many colleagues/professionals/parents in the role)
" Experience with helping SEND children access the early stages of the curriculum
" A patient, calm and perseverant approach
" PECS or Makaton experience and experience of working with non-verbal students would be ideal
" Very good team skills and a good sense of humour!
This is a temporary position.

This is a temporary position unless otherwise stated.
Please note: The details of this job are correct as of the start of the school closures. We anticipate that there will still be a need to fill this vacancy either on the expected timescale (as many of the schools we work with will remain open to support SEND/Keyworker children) or when schools re-open. We are therefore continuing to accept applications but please bear with us as there may be a delay on the listed start date due to the fact that the situation is continually evolving.
