The school are looking for a Teaching Assistant to support a pupil in Year 4 on a 1:1 basis with SEMH. This is for a full-time SEMH Teaching Assistant.The student has quite high mental health and anxiety issues and can quite often lash out as a response to this. The school require someone who has experience working with challenging pupils and can be flexible in their approach in recognising when the child becomes frustrated. You will be working alongside the SENCo on the child’s EHCP and working to create a plan that will help the child improve their behaviour, support their mental health and be able to confidently work in the classroom to ensure they can achieve their best.
