Stenson Fields Primary School are looking to appoint 2 highly motivated, enthusiastic and committed teaching assistants to work with:

Role 1: EYFS child 

Role 2: Y3 child 

Both children require support for communication and interaction, learning development, social, emotional and wellbeing and sensory needs. The Y3 child will need some occupational therapy and possibly some personal care over time.

It would be preferable if candidates have had some experience of working with SEN children. 

The successful candidate will have knowledge, understanding and commitment to working closely with the class teacher, to provide support for the child to promote independence, encourage inclusion and access to the curriculum and learning resources. 

They will need good communication skills, be enthusiastic and be able to work on their own initiative at times. Above all, we are looking for someone with a caring nature and kind personality who will have a range of strategies to ensure the child’s personal, social and emotional and learning needs are met. 

They will be required to be an active team player within the school, as we work hard as an effective team in improving teaching and learning for all children. 

In return we offer the opportunity to work as part of a highly motivated and supportive team, opportunities for CPD and a caring ethos from parents and governors. 

Provisional Interview Date: 16 October 2023.


Due to this post having access to children and/or vulnerable adults, the successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check. The possession of a criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post, as all cases are judged individually according to the nature of the role and information provided.
