Job Ref:

Someone with experience of behaviour support roles, in any capacity, is needed for a full-time role in a school in LS4 (Burley).

A primary school need an experienced behaviour support worker to work with a child who will be going into Year 6 next year. The child has had to spend an increasing amount of time outside of class and in this capacity the school need someone who can be trusted to handle volatile behaviour when they become agitated and restless. The other half of the role combines elements of TA work when they're in class by supporting them and keeping them focused, as well as intervening if required in break and lunchtimes.

The school need someone as currently the general TAs are struggling with their behaviour especially when needed out of class. The child has SEMH needs and therefore can often become overwhelmed in full class lesson scenarios. A candidate who is experienced in handling volatile behaviour such as this and would not be phased by it is definitely needed, therefore the more experience the better.

The role is full-time and begins when school returns (most likely September) until Christmas, although this is highly likely to be extended should the dedicated support be working well until the end of the academic year. The SLT would like anyone with experience in a behavioural setting, whether that be PRUs, care homes, specialist provision schools or even similar roles in mainstream schools.

If you are interested in this role then please apply by submitting an up-to-date CV. The school are keen to have trials for chosen candidates as soon as the children are back in school, and Teaching Personnel will liaise with the school to organise these.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualifications and training for this role. Please see for details.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay. This advert is for a temporary position. In some cases, the option to make this role permanent may become available at a later date.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We offer all our registered candidates FREE child protection and prevent duty training. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
