Individual Needs Assistant

£10 an hour (including holiday pay)
Prep School
Eastbourne, East Sussex

Sussex Teachers are working with an independent prep school in Eastbourne to find a full time Individual Needs Assistant. We are looking for an experienced INA to join the school from the 18th of November and work until at least Christmas, potentially until the end of this academic year.

Situated in the Meads area of Eastbourne and with panoramic views of the South Downs and the sea front, the school provides a caring, safe and stimulating environment for every child. The school aims to put the interest of the pupil first and seeks every opportunity to guide and inspire pupils to be passionate, curious, independent, happy and ambitious, both for themselves and others, whilst in and outside the classrooms. They aim to promote each child’s unique talents through personalised, high-quality academic, creative, co-curricular and sporting programmes.

You will be working with a KS1 child with special needs who is currently working below Age Related Expectations. They display behaviour associated with ASD and require support with their behaviour and accessing learning in the classroom. Working under the guidance of the class teacher and SENCO you will prepare learning materials and follow your students IEP to ensure they have every opportunity to learn and grow. You will liaise with parents, outside agencies and teachers to inform them of your child’s progress both academically and socially.

You will have recent experience supporting pupils with SEN, ideally within a Reception or Year 1 classroom. You must have a minimum of 3 experience working in schools and be able to evidence this through Good references. Before starting we require you to hold a valid DBS certificate, which can either be processed through our agency or signed up to the Update Service.

You will be paid a competitive hourly rate and once registered with Sussex Teachers will have exclusive access to our TA and INA roles at our partnership schools. We work closely with schools across Sussex to find education staff for both temporary and part time roles and will work on your behalf to find roles that suit you and your career. When this assignment is completed you will benefit from working with a specialist education consultant who can assist you in finding future roles.

If you would like to work in this happy and special school call us on 01273 626800 for more information or click apply now.
