Recommended Posts

 
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.

They are also learning so we are learning together! I never had to think about accessibility before I met them and I am very grateful that I get to learn about their experience. Meetin

    • There are so many reasons why I want to learn BSL. When I was little I was properly introduced to BSL by my mum, she learned BSL as part of her job as a child-minder. She taught me what she learned and I loved the language!  I always wanted to learn more but never found the time or anyone to practice with. I've had many jobs in public sector and learned that I could be more inclusive with my communication.  Being diagnosed with hearing loss motivated me even more to learn BSL. It
