Warmsworth Primary School has an exciting opportunity for a Thrive Practitioner / Teaching Assistant to join the team and make a difference for our most vulnerable children, particularly those with additional needs.

The Governors of Warmsworth Primary School wish to appoint a talented and enthusiastic Thrive practitioner / Teaching Assistant to join our Inclusion Team. The successful candidate will be working under the instruction and guidance of the SENCO and Inclusion Team to support our most vulnerable children both in and out of class to support their social and emotional learning, as well as their academic progress.

We are a large mainstream primary school, providing education for children aged between 3 and 11 years old. Our inclusive ethos means that we are supporting an increasingly higher number of children with additional needs, sometimes very complex, and we all work together to best meet the needs of these children.

This post will also include supporting children through the lunchtime period to lead play and activities for some of our more vulnerable children.  

The successful candidate will:

  • Have the passion to make a difference and a commitment to inclusion and equity.
  • Be a good communicator with excellent interpersonal skills and ability to engage with pupils
  • Have a calm, flexible, pleasant manner and be able to form relationships quickly with our children and staff
  • Have high standards of themselves and others and work well as part of a team
  • Have experience, or an interest and understanding, of supporting primary aged children with additional needs
  • Be a THRIVE trained practitioner (or be committed to undertaking additional training to become one)
  • Have good literacy and numeracy skills (GCSE English and Mathematics to Grade C or above, or equivalent)

We can offer:

  • A very welcoming, caring school ethos, where we are passionate about meeting the needs of all children and develop each child as a whole
  • An opportunity to work within a talented, hard-working, supportive team of staff, governors and parents
  • An inclusive ethos with happy, enthusiastic and motivated children
  • Excellent professional learning opportunities and career development
  • A well-resourced school, both inside and out

Closing date: 12 noon on Monday 15th July 2024.  Interview date TBC.
