At Harlands we learn, we achieve, we have fun… everyone matters.

We are seeking to recruit an Individual Needs Assistant to join our staff team from September 2022. This will be a fixed term post to provide care, education and support to a pupil currently in Key Stage one.

Applications are welcomed from those with recent experience of working with children who have emotional and behavioural difficulties and of managing individual needs within a classroom environment.  

The successful applicant will demonstrate the ability to provide consistent, calm support and encouragement whilst maintaining clear behavioural boundaries.

The working pattern will initially be 8.45 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily, term time only. In addition, as the term progresses we envisage the need for additional afternoon working.

At Harlands we believe that every child is unique and learns best when they are feeling safe, secure and happy. We provide children with a range of opportunities to ensure they are all able to achieve to their fullest potential. Our children are inspired to learn about the amazing world around them, encouraged to develop a love of learning and given confidence to embrace new challenges. We support all of our children to become happy, independent, expressive, enthusiastic, sociable and creative individuals, instilling values that prepare them to become responsible citizens in society.

Harlands is a very special place to work and we pride ourselves on the strength, enthusiasm and dedication of our staff. We look forward to welcoming a new member to our staff team and we actively encourage visits to enable potential applicants to experience our school first hand.
