Term time + inset days.
Full time 8.30–3.30pm.
Actual salary 28.75 hrs £12,777 (WBC Grade 3 FTE £19,312–£19,698).
We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and experienced member of staff to this highly skilled team. The post holder must be well motivated, flexible and have an excellent understanding of how to support children with Speech and Language needs.
The role is a challenging but highly rewarding one, supporting children with an Education Health and Care Plan placed within the Resource from all over Wokingham. This role would suit someone who enjoys building close relationships with children and supporting them to access the curriculum in specialist lessons as well as in their Mainstream classroom.
It is essential that you are highly organised and adaptable to fulfil this role. Whilst further in-house training is provided, experience of supporting children with Speech and Language difficulties is essential.
At Highwood we not only promote academic and sporting excellence but we also place a huge emphasis on teaching children the skills they need to become effective learners. The learning behaviours we promote are Perseverance, Teamwork, Curiosity, Creativity, Reflection and Independence. We strongly believe that if our children continually develop these skills alongside making academic progress, then we have been successful in preparing them for our ever-changing world.
