Lanivet School – Teaching Assistant X2

Lanivet School is a single-form entry village school, located in the heart of Cornwall near Bodmin.

We are looking for an excellent  SEN Teaching Assistant (min. Level 2) to join our team and to look after some of our pupils who are starting to use speech as a way of interaction in conjunction with Makaton and other non-verbal ways of communication. These pupils are included in main stream class rooms, but have a differentiated program.

We have a SEN Lead TA and SENDCO who will be able to support our new TA in this role. This is a full-time position. We also need a part-time TA to work mornings with an Infant pupil with emotional difficulties. This very bright pupil who needs support to stay on task and needs THRIVE/TIS interventions. Our pupils love learning in the outdoors in the woods opposite our school and on the village green. Our ethos is inclusive and we are determined to get the best out of everyone.

Governors and SLT value and encourage Continuous Professional Development and make sure that all staff have access to appropriate training. We have a team of dedicated teachers and wonderful support staff and if you think you would like to join us, we would love to hear from you!
