Job Description

SEN Teaching Assistant - Bolton

We are working with a 'Good' secondary school in Bolton, who are looking to secure the services of an experienced, dedicated SEN Teaching Assistant to join them from ASAP until July 2024.

It is essential that you have experience, supporting pupils with additional needs. This particular role is to support the needs of students with SEN, who may display low-level challenging behaviours and can become disengaged from learning quite quickly. You must be comfortable with EBD/SEMH. To be successful in this role, it is essential you are calm, resilient, and overall, have a good sense of humour.

This school has been recently inspected by Ofsted and found to be 'Good' in all areas. Pupils feel safe and well supported at this warm and welcoming school, with their polite and kind nature. The leaders of the school have high expectations of the students which the pupils rise to everyday by striving for the best in behaviour and progress. Pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), benefit from a wide range of extra-curricular activities. For instance, pupils enjoy taking part in clubs like yoga, drone design, strategy gaming and creative writing. Pupils develop their wider understanding of the world through visits to the theatre to watch performances such as Othello, Wicked, A Christmas Carol and The Inspector Calls.
