West Jesmond is a large, very successful and happy school now occupying a wonderful new building, in the heart of a vibrant and diverse community. The leadership team and governing body are looking to appoint the very best staff to join our team who will make a real positive contribution to the education of our fantastic children.

The school is seeking to appoint a SEN classroom assistant to work in our very successful and highly committed classroom support team.


Though the role is very flexible and responsive to individual and school needs, experience of working with children with a range of additional needs, including ASD, is essential.


Specific training related to supporting children with ASD and communication difficulties is desirable. Knowledge of the national curriculum for key stages one and two, and experience working across these would also be beneficial. The role is primarily to work with individuals and small groups of children to support their learning, while also providing some general classroom support.  Part of the role will involve administering medication and supporting children with intimate care needs and some experience of this will be necessary.  


The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. The successful applicants will be required to obtain an Enhanced Certificate of Disclosure from the DBS and be successful against a range of other recruitment checks.
