Lawrence Sheriff School is an outstanding boys’ grammar school of approximately 900 students, over 300 of whom are in the co-educational sixth form.
In 2013 Ofsted stated ‘the school is a harmonious community where students with different needs can thrive, achieve highly in their academic work and enjoy a wide range of enrichment opportunities.’ In January 2011 the school was placed top of DfE performance tables for GCSE (having first achieved this distinction in 2008). We are proud that our students have very positive attitudes to learning.
We are looking to appoint an experienced Level 2 Teaching Assistant to support a specific student with ASD, in order to facilitate their access to the curriculum and maximise their independence. The position will be directly linked to the Student’s EHCP and as such will be a fixed term contract, initially until 20th December 2019.
The successful applicant must have the ability to establish effective relationships with children, young people and teaching staff. Being an effective communicator is critical due to the needs of ASD and therefore excellent written and spoken English is essential. You must be highly organised, with good time management skills and be IT literate. A knowledge and understanding of ASD and its impact on students’ learning is essential.
