Thameside Primary is an inclusive and friendly school and we are seeking a resilient and compassionate practitioner with experience of supporting children with complex needs, specifically children with Social Emotional Mental Health Difficulties (SEMHD).

  • supporting individual pupils and small groups in their learning, both indoors and outdoors
  • observing how pupils learn and assessing further learning needs
  • supporting the teacher with all aspects of children’s learning, including administrative support
  • assisting with setting up the classroom, preparing resources and creating classroom displays.


We are looking for supportive teaching assistants with:

  • Previous experience of working with children with SEND would be an advantage but not essential.
  • a good standard of English and Maths is essential, effective communication skills and a commitment to teamwork.
