Teaching Assistant Role - Temporary – Grade 4 – £19505.00 to £19895.00 pro rata, per annum - Primary Schools - Wheelock Primary School, Crewe Road, Sandbach CW11 4PY

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, positive and hard-working Teaching Assistant to join our dedicated team of staff at Wheelock Primary School.

The position will primarily be supporting a child who will be in KS1 on a 1 to 1 basis, but will also involve other 1 to 1 and small group work both inside and outside the classroom, as directed by the class teacher. The position is offered on a temporary basis, and the contract will be linked to the child’s attendance at the school and will be terminated if they were to leave. The position available is to start 05th September 2022.

The post is 27.5 hours per week, working Monday to Thursday 8.45am to 12.30pm and 1.00pm to 3.15pm and Friday 8.45am to 12.30pm term-time only (39 weeks per year).

Experience of working with children with SEND would be an advantage. A nurturing and inclusive approach is essential.

This is a fantastic opportunity to become part of our successful and forward-thinking primary school. Wheelock is part of the Learning for Life Partnership Multi Academy Trust (MAT) and the Trust offers outstanding opportunities for peer learning and development.

We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates and candidates with disabilities because we would like to increase the representation of these groups at the Learning for Life Partnership. We want to do this because we know greater diversity will lead to even greater outcomes for children.
