The job itself

If you’re looking for part time term time only work in Hessle and have a warm and caring personality, then this could be the role for you.

Now located in the heart of Hessle, our fabulous brand new state- of- the- art school is looking for lunch time support assistants to work three hours a day for up to five days per week with our amazing students. As a school for pupils with severe learning difficulties and complex needs, our lunch time support assistants work along side teachers and other support staff to provide a safe and engaging learning environment. Whether it’s working as part of a group, or providing 1:1 personal care, no two days are the same, and you’ll play in integral role in the middle of the day covering for staff as they take their own lunch breaks and ensure continuity of care for our students. Whilst mechanical aids are used where practicably possible, there is an element of moving and handling involved in the role as is the requirement to assist with personal care, for example: feeding, changing nappies and pads and toileting.

You must be able to show:

  • fantastic communication skills with children, young people, their carers and other agencies,
  • be proactive and show initiative
  • Plan and prioritise under pressure
  • Be a trustworthy role model in and around our school community
  • Respect and maintain confidentiality whilst adhering to safeguarding principles at all times
  • Demonstrate you really care about children, particularly those who find learning and managing their behaviour difficult.
  • Demonstrate that you have the necessary skills and experience transferrable to a Special Needs Education Setting.

You may not have formal qualifications in education and/or child development (although this would be an advantage) but you will be computer literate have a good standard of education including passes at GCSE maths and English (or equivalent).

In return we offer you the chance to join an award-winning school, work with inspiring children and young people, and be part of a passionate and committed team that offers great career and development opportunities.

We can offer two start and finish times:

Post 1: 11:15 – 2:15pm

Post 2: 11:30 – 2:30pm

If this sounds like the role for you, you must complete an application form found at https://www.eastridingcouncil.jobs/. You must provide at least the last 10 years of employment or education history and explain any gaps and you must have a legal right to work in the UK. Appointments will be subject to satisfactory disclosure checks at enhanced level by the Disclosure and Barring Service as well as other background checks including professional references.

Online applications close on 31 December. Applications will be received at the school up until 9am on 1 January.
