About the role

Skyswood Primary School are looking to appoint a Learning Support Assistant, initially within our reception class, to support a child with exceptional needs. We are fully committed to the child's longer term development and envisage that the post will continue throughout the child's time at Skyswood. The post is for afternoons only (11 1/4 hrs per week.) From 1.00 p.m. to 3.15 p.m. Mondays to Fridays. Previous experience supporting children with special educational needs is desirable, and some knowledge of Makaton would be particularly useful. A commitment to receiving training in Makaton will be essential for any candidate without these skills at present. Our candidate will also be expected to become a valuable part of our EYFS team, liaising closely with our experienced LSA who supports the child during the mornings and lunch periods. We have a fantastic team at Skyswood and the post is linked to a delightful boy who has made outstanding progress over the last year. Visits are welcome and this is a great opportunity for somebody to join our wonderful Skyswood team, potentially on a long term basis.
