Morecambe and Heysham Westgate Primary School - -264 days remaining
Closing Date 29/09/2017
Langridge Way, Westgate, Morecambe, Lancashire LA4 4XF
SCP 13-17 Pro-rata
NOR: 630

We are looking to add to our team of Teaching Assistants who are able to support children with English as a second language. The job description is as the generic TA2 job description but with a clear focus on providing support to our EAL children who are mostly Eastern European. This will involve group work with children delivering intervention strategies supporting the increased use of and knowledge about English. Often children’s difficulties can be magnified when their parents have little or no English and so liaison with families will also form part of this role. Obviously the ability to speak both English and another language would be a positive advantage in this situation. 

The post will be for 25 hours per week and will be for twelve months in the first instance. We may ask the successful candidate to work at lunchtimes as part of the welfare team and as a general classroom assistant at times.

The successful candidates will be joining a very dynamic and dedicated team who will work hard to support and make a new colleague feel at home. The work is challenging and not for the feint hearted! However the satisfaction and sense of achievement far outweigh the hard work.

If you are enthusiastic, patient, enjoy working with children, have plenty of common sense and like a challenge – this could be the job for you – we’d like to hear from you.

The closing date is 29th September at 12 noon.
