Communication Support Worker - Thomas Hinderwell Primary Academy *NJC09 £20,344 (Actual salary £15,625) - 32.5 hours per week, term time only*


‘Don’t judge a book by its cover – come and broaden your horizons!’


Thomas Hindwell Primary Academy is a one and a half form entry primary (265 on roll and rising) with big ambitions as we continue to broaden our horizons for our children and our staff team.


Over the last year we have overhauled our curriculum, leadership structure, provision, and learning environments and we enter 2019 looking very much to the future.  
As a school we are very much a ‘sleeping giant’ and while our new approaches will take time to further embed we are seeing positive results. As a school we have adopted Talk for Writing, Effective Maths, a new Core Knowledge Curriculum and become an outward facing school working with our coastal primary partners to transform our children’s lives.
We are part of the David Ross Education Trust which is a family of 34 primary and secondary schools. As a staff colleague you will access CPD available locally as well as accessing leading teaching and leadership programmes through our Trust networks.


Our ongoing development in terms of educational achievement and commitment to raising standards on the coast is at the forefront of our thinking – and we now have a Research Arm, a great enrichment programme and work closely as a partner of the Scarborough and Esk Valley Teaching Alliances.
Our opportunity


We are looking to appoint a colleague to support and guide one of our Year one pupils who is hearing impaired. Working closely with the designated Teacher of the Deaf through the Local Authority you will provide the communication support and help make sure the learning provided is adapted accordingly.
While we are looking for current or prior experience of working with Deaf children you will work closely with our support staff and the LA specialist who will be in school at least every 2 weeks.


We are looking for:
· Current or prior experience of working with Deaf children
· A good understanding of the needs of Deaf pupils and strategies that will help ensure they make progress
· A colleague who is supportive, nurturing and seeks to make learning exciting and a positive experience

We can offer you: 
· A school with a renewed focus who puts pastoral and nurture provision at its heart and an aspirational outlook for our children
· An opportunity to be in a school that is rapidly improving
· Happy, enthusiastic children who are thriving and have a thirst for learning
· A school which has had its learning environments inside and out redesigned and reworked to fully met the expectations of our children and staff
· An opportunity to work with an experienced and committed team and be part of a Trust which is diverse and puts the community at the heart of its agenda
Join us and build a wonderful career in a school you are passionate about. Please contact the school office for more details.
We strongly recommend that you visit us so that we can share with you why we are so proud of our school, and you will get a chance to see what we have to offer.  Please contact the school office on 01723 373110.

For an informal conversation you are welcome to contact James at North Yorkshire County Council at [email protected] or call 01609 534939/ 07966261249.

Wow - this is a low salary! I work as a TA in Notts and my FTE is £22k - plus we actually get paid for the full 52 weeks, not TTO.
I currently work 21hours and make almost as much as this is for 32.50 hours. People can't live on this.

    • Hi, my name is Emma and I decided to start the BSL introducing sign language course this summer. I believe everyone has the right to communicate and as an aspiring solicitor I would love to be able to assist all the clients I may have in the future. This course means I will have a better chance of being able to advise clients who may be hard of hearing or have complete hearing loss. 
    • Hi all, I am a Teaching assistant in an FS2 class from September and will be providing SEND support to pupils with various needs, including communication difficulties.  I am trying to learn BSL to help these children communicate more effectively
    • I'm about to start as a Child/Mental Health Nurse and already have a degree in Psychology and Counselling. I'm studying this for a few reasons; to help in my future placements as a nurse, to help my husband learn as he's losing his hearing and to help my daughter who is autistic and struggles with facial social cues. BSL has been proven to help with autistic's language learning (spoken and non-spoken) whether they be verbal or non-verbal, that's probably the main reason I'm here.
    • Hello everyone,  My name is Dave and I am currently completing the BSL introductory course. I am a primary school teacher in a mainstream school who has decided to learn sign language for different reasons. The main one being due to being interested in helping children communicate who find it hard to verbalise and also to help tailor my teaching to help include children who have hearing loss. I am finding the course really interesting and full of useful resources. I am aiming for complete a
    • Hi! I start as a Student Children/Mental Health Nurse in September and have wanted to learn BSL for a while, so I thought I would take this summer to brush up the very few signs I have known since childhood into an actual functioning working knowledge o the language so that I can better help future patients. I'd love to practise with someone, I'm starting lesson five today so I'm not exceptionally brilliant, but I'm eager! I'm currently struggling with the few different ways I've fou
    • Hi, I'm currently a 3rd year medical student - I've been able to get involved with some 'sciency' research, so would be interesting to talk/practice BSL in that regard. I always look to & enjoy meeting people in a similar field/common interests
    • I’ve been learning BSL informally for two years as part of my job as a support worker.  Was about to begin formal training just before the lockdown happened so not sure if/when it will be now. My workplace only fund level one as the people we support have very basic communication. I plan to go all the way though with the aim of becoming an interpreter in the future. So, in the meantime I am trying to get whatever experience I can. Particularly keen on developing my receptive language skills
    • Sign is always something that I have been very much interested in... I am really enjoying the learning and only wish that I had started it sooner. I feel that it is so important that we are inclusive and I would love to be able to have some of the skills to communicate on another level...
