Rowan Gate is a vibrant and highly successful primary school for pupils with severe and complex learning difficulties, with an established sites in Wellingborough and Rushden, Northamptonshire.
Due to the expansion of the school and the increase in staff, we are looking to add to our bank of casual/supply teaching assistants to cover short-term absence and training. These positions do not have regular guaranteed hours and work can be requested/offered to fit in with other commitments. As a 2-site school, it would be helpful if applicants were able and willing to work at either site but we accept that this may not always be possible and a candidates inability to work at both sites will not be a barrier to consideration.
The role is classed as a Teaching Assistant SEN Level 1, which is paid at Grade D, point 3 of the NCC pay structure. This is currently £10.49 per hour (including an element of holiday pay).
Please note that acceptance as a supply teaching assistant post will not automatically render you suitable for contracted work and, should a vacancy arise within the school, you will be required to follow the application procedure for that post. However, you will be provided with an opportunity to gain relevant experience that will support any application for a post within a school environment.
Ideally, the successful candidates will have:
- Good English and Maths skills (preferrably GCSE) or its equivalent
- Good communication skill
- Knowledge of and a commitment to supporting pupils with various Special Educational Needs
Rowan Gate is committed to safeguarding and promoting the safety and welfare of the pupils in its care and all applicants should hold or be willing to undergo a DBS Enhanced check. Appointment will also be subject to a satisfactory medical assessment and 2 satisfactory references.
There is no closing date for applications for casual work. We will consider applications as they are received. Please make sure that you specify clearly on your application that you wish to be considered for casual work.
