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.

    • Hey everyone!
      My name is Michelle and I am here to get to know some BSL users! I would love to get to know someone around my own age (23) to practice with, or to teach me.
      I have been learning on my own for some time now and I am very much still a beginner, but I am evolving, and I love the language and the culture.

      I am from Denmark and I am not just looking to practice, I am looking to make friends in the deaf community. Tell me about everything! The good, the bad..the fun!. I myself have not formally been to any BSL classes, but I joined in on some beginner lessons in Oxford last year, and I had a somewhat understandable conversation on BSL with the teacher.

      So please message me if you think it could be fun to learn me a thing or two about your life - or your own learning experience (or If you, you know, love cats, Harry Potter, Backpacking and Netflix...really get a hold of me! haha)

    • Hi. I am just starting to lead BSL  however I notice a few differences between bsl  and sign language in Scotland.

    • Hello all. I have used BSL off and on over many years and am really only a beginner. However, I really want to commit to learning BSL and am keen to practise with someone. I am a qualified teacher (senior leader) and have used Makaton/SSE before but wish to move to a school with high number of D/deaf children. I am happy for anyone to contact me who wants to practise or who has any advice for me. Thanks, Rob W.
