Teaching Assistant (TA2) Advert - September 2020

Blackmarston School


Are you interested in joining our friendly and hard-working team, working with children with severe and complex needs, autism and challenging behaviours between the ages of 2 – 11 years? 

We have openings for Level 2 Support Teaching Assistants (HC05, SCP 6-11), with additional Special School Lunch Supt hours (HC04, SCP 4-6).


We are looking to become an ‘Outstanding’ school, not simply in terms of the judgements made by Ofsted (judged ‘Good’ in 2017), but in all aspects of our working practice; offering pupils a safe, exciting and stimulating environment to work in, whilst offering our staff a range of CPD opportunities that will allow them to become the best practitioners they can be. We will nurture, challenge and develop any staff who are fortunate enough to work at our school, in the same way that we look to meet the ongoing needs of the children and families in our care. That is the Blackmarston promise.


We require suitably qualified and experienced Level 2 Support Assistants to work 26.25 hours per week and 3.75 hours per week as a Lunch Supt.  This position is term time only and offered on a permanent - variable contract.


Experience within a special school is not essential but enthusiasm, dedication and a genuine desire to work with our children is paramount.


Blackmarston School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Appointment will be subject satisfactory completion of all pre-employment checks and, where appropriate, satisfactory completion of your probation period.
