To start ASAP
4 hours per week
Term time only, permanent contract
Salary:  FTE £22,369 to £24,496 depending on experience.

At Shaw-cum-Donnington CE Primary School we believe that to enable our pupils to learn effectively, they need to feel safe in their environment and be both socially and emotionally ready to learn.  We recognise that some of our pupils are not always emotionally ready and require an increased level of support for them to access the wider curriculum.

Work to encourage children to relate to each other
Foster positive relationships and engage with classroom/school life
Be able to use their initiative and be flexible in their approach to best support the needs of the children
Be able to remain highly confidential at all times
Be hard working with a passion about helping children to achieve their full potential
Encourage children to form friendships and engage in positive play at break/lunchtimes
Be calm and patient with a positive outlook
Have high expectation of all children
Be motivated and inspirational

We welcome visits from all prospective candidates to come and look around our fantastic school.
