New Bridge School

NJC scale point 3

£18,562 per annum (full time, full year salary)

Actual salary: £13,769 per annum

SEN Allowance £1,324 per annum (pro rata)

Commencing as soon as possible

 

Part of the wider New Bridge Multi Academy Trust (MAT), New Bridge School is a generic special needs school for pupils and students between the ages of 11 and 19 across three sites within Oldham. 

 

The school has an Outstanding rated provision which caters for 380 pupils with a wide range of SEND, from moderate learning difficulties to profound and multiple learning difficulties, including severe and complex learning difficulties. The school also caters for pupils with physical disabilities, multisensory impairments, visual impairments, hearing impairments and specific conditions including autism spectrum condition.  All pupils have an EHC plan.  In order to cater to the needs of the range of pupils the school has developed a range of different provisions.

 

The Trustees are looking to appoint two resilient and enthusiastic Level 1 Teaching Assistants to join our dynamic, growing and committed staff team within the Interactive base at the Roman Road site (11-16 provision). 

 

The Interactive Base (IB) provides an appropriate learning environment for learners with complex learning difficulties and disabilities (CLDD). The aim of the IB is to provide a stimulating, engaging and sensory curriculum that is both broad and balanced.   The IB groups offer a base for their learners which provides routine, consistent specialist staffing and encourages independence and communication.  The pupils within the IB are grouped in classes which may go across age groups and sometimes Key Stages to best meet their needs.

 

All pupils in IB have individual care plans which detail interventions required for their care and ability to engage fully with all aspects of school life.  As a TA1 in IB you may be required to support with feeding and swallowing, speech and language programmes which can include assistive technologies, physiotherapy programmes, behaviour interventions, personal care and assisting with medical needs.  You would be assigned to a class group and support these pupils in all lessons.

 

Applicants should be able to demonstrate how they meet the following essential criteria:

  • Previous experience of working with young people of primary/secondary school age who may present with challenging behaviour and complex needs, preferably within an educational setting
  • A nurturing and empathetic approach to behaviour management
  • The physical and emotional resilience to support students with complex needs, taking a non-judgemental approach
  • The ability to support teaching and learning within a special needs setting to a dedicated group of students
  • The ability to support the class teacher to monitor student progress, ensuring their improved engagement with the school and their learning
  • The ability to record student progress and provide regular feedback to stakeholders.
  • The ability to model and encourage appropriate social behaviour in and out of school and to cater for the general welfare of students.
  • The ability to work in partnership with classroom teachers to differentiate appropriate interventions for students in relation to the curriculum
  • The ability to work as part of a team using own initiative when needed
  • Willingness to participate in own professional development

 

Although based initially at our Roman Road site, all staff are employed by the MAT and are expected to work at any site within the New Bridge Group

 

New Bridge MAT is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and applicants must have a commitment to safeguarding young people. This post is subject to a satisfactory enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service and references will be sought prior to appointment.
