Small CofE Primary School near Uckfield
Uckfield, East Sussex

Sussex Techers are working with a small village primary school in the Wealden District of East Sussex to find an experienced INA for a KS1 pupil with SEMH difficulties. We are looking for some to start after half term and to work full time until the end of the academic year.

This small Church of England primary is based in the centre of Uckfield. You will be joining a warm and inclusive school with pupils who are friendly, polite and keen to do well. The school strives to nurture and inspire children to achieve their full potential whatever their skills and abilities, encouraging their pupils to become readers, writers, inventors and challengers.

You will be responsible for supporting the child throughout their school day as well as supporting other children in small groups. You will help the children to progress socially and academically by working closely with a supportive team, as well as other school staff. You will be expected to feedback to both the class teacher and SENCO about the child's progress and general wellbeing. Behaviour in this particular class can at times be challenging, and so it is important you are skilled in behaviour management and good behaviour strategies

We are looking for someone with experience supporting learners with SEN, whether as Class Teaching Assistant or an Individual Needs Assistant. Experience with children with SEMH difficulties is desired but is not essential. You must have a minimum of 3 months recent experience working in schools and be able to evidence this through Good references. You must be available for full time work, and be available to work from 8.30 until 3.15 Monday – Friday in term times, until the end of the academic year.

You will be paid a competitive hourly rate and once registered with Sussex Teachers will have exclusive access to 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.
