Learning Support Assistant Grade 4 - SEMH and Anxiety Support

8.15am to 3.00pm (30.40 Hours), Monday - Friday, term time only

To start as soon as possible

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed Learning Support Assistant to join our successful SEND team and thriving school. The Bulmershe School is a heavily oversubscribed school which sits at the heart of the community. We are a mixed local authority, 11-18 school of approximately 1400 students, who come from diverse backgrounds and cultures. We work closely with our parents, partners and feeder school to achieve the best outcomes for all of our students. We were rated as ‘Good’ in our last OFSTED report and are aiming for Outstanding.

The role entails working with students with a range of SEND needs to support specific needs around social emotional mental health and anxiety both in class and on a 1-1 basis. The successful applicant will be self- motivated, able to take responsibility for young people who are struggling with anxiety related conditions and behaviours.

An ability to work with young people who exhibit signs of anxiety will also be beneficial. A calm and non-confrontational approach is essential

The SEND department has its own base with fantastic facilities which afford a superb environment in which to work and learn. We are a friendly and supportive team of 15 staff within the department who have a wealth of experience. With an ever changing world, we continue to learn and adapt in order to support our students. For example, in the recent pandemic we supported students remotely using Google Meets and other platforms. Therefore a candidate with strong IT skills or a willingness to learn is essential.

For further information about the role or school please contact Frances Childs, SENCo at fchilds@bulmershe.wokingham.sch.uk or Elizabeth Annetts, Head’s PA at EAnnetts@bulmershe.wokingham.sch.uk

Please complete the support staff application form (CV's will not be accepted) and email to eannetts@bulmershe.wokingham.sch.uk

Closing date is 3pm on Monday 31st January. Applications will be considered upon receipt. (We reserve the right to appoint before the published closing date).

The Bulmershe School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Appointments are subject to enhanced DBS clearance and satisfactory employment references.
