About the role

As part of Aurora Academy Trust, City Academy Whitehawk offers many exciting opportunities and benefits to staff.

We are looking to appoint two highly motivated and hardworking INAs to join our friendly and supportive team.   The posts are to provide one to one (or small group) support for children who are due to start with us in September 2019 in Reception and as they progress through the school.

The successful candidates will need to have experience of primary education or nursery/early years including a working knowledge of the curriculum and be able to adapt this to suit the individual needs of the children.

As part of the role you will be required to demonstrate –

  • Energy and enthusiasm for learning and enabling children to achieve their highest potential
  • Willingness to undertake all relevant training (this may involve the use of equipment and medical procedures required to support the children)
  • Sense of humour and resilience
  • Willingness to work in a team which includes parents/carers and relevant external agents
  • Flexibility and creativity in order to support children to overcome their barriers to learning and access all areas of school life

Previous experience in supporting children with special educational needs and/or disabilities is desirable. Visits to the school, by appointment, are essential and can be arranged by contacting the school office on 01273 681377.
