Teaching Assistants
£60 - £80 per day
Small C of E primary school in Brighton
Brighton, East Sussex

Sussex Teachers are working with a small C of E Primary school in Brighton to find a KS1 teaching assistant to start in September.

Our client is a small, friendly and kind primary school who are looking for a teaching assistant to join their Year 2 team on a temporary basis. Situated in Whitehawk, the school is very easily accessed by public transport, with a regular bus route from Brighton town centre. This is a temporary position to start September and will continue until funding finishes. The role is for 30 hours a week.

As a classroom teaching assistant, you will support the class teacher in delivering exciting lessons to children aged 6 -7. You will provide additional guidance to pupils during class activities, either on a one to one basis or in small groups. As well as general TA duties you will be working with pupils with challenging behaviour, and so it is important that you follow the school’s behaviour policies and positive reward systems to ensure a consistent and fair approach to the students in your care.

We are looking for someone with experience supporting learners with SEN, whether as Class Teaching Assistant or an Individual Needs Assistant. Ideally you will have experience of working with challenging behaviour.  You must have a minimum of 3 months recent experience working in schools and be able to evidence this through Good references. You will be available Monday – Friday, to begin work at 8.15 am until 3.15pm with a 30-minute break during this time.

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.
