The entrance of the new extension of Wincanton Primary School, with the Ofsted 'Good' banner

26.65 hours per week (full time)
Salary Grade 15 (£9.62-£9.81 per hour)
Temporary post subject to funding
(initially until Dec 2021 longer term should funding be granted)

Our OFSTED rated ‘Good’ School is looking for a skilled full-time Learning Support Assistant to work with a child in Year 3 to help with concentration, attention and completion of tasks.

We would like to hear from you if you:

  • are an outstanding practitioner
  • have experience of working with children with complex needs
  • have a knowledge of how to support a pupil’s emotional needs as well as their academic development
  • are able to demonstrate a good use of initiative and responsibility to support pupils’ learning
  • are able to take on others’ ideas

Our curriculum is set up to explore learning through a hands-on approach that requires skilled professionals to have the ability to promote what is being seen as well as knowing the curriculum well enough to make connections with other areas of the curriculum at the same time; i.e. development of grammar through an investigation or the use of speech. Candidates need to also recognise the small steps that a child needs to take and how this is recorded as part of their Individual Learning Plan. This skilled role will enable a child to unlock their learning and become confident learners – a privileged position indeed.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to enhanced DBS disclosure and pre-employment checks will be undertaken before any post is confirmed.

Application packs and further information are available to download from our school website:

Application forms should be returned to the Headteacher Mr. G. Wilson by 12 noon on Monday 10th May 2021. Interviews will be held on Monday 17th May 2021.
