Communication Support Assistant To Work With Hi Children

Post# A30 · Southampton, South East, United Kingdom

We are looking to appoint a Communication Support Assistant on a fixed term contract to support Hearing Impaired children within class and in our attached resourced provision. The candidate would preferably have worked with HI children and have some qualifications/skills at using BSL.

At Park View Infant School, we are extremely proud of our inclusive HI resourced provision which is substantial to the ethos of the whole school and supports our strong links to the local deaf community. British sign language is used throughout the school as another form of communication for all pupils not just those with hearing impairment.

The vacancy is for 30 hours per week to work predominantly 1:1 with a HI pupil in the Early Years, communicating with them using BSL and supporting them to access the Early Years curriculum. A knowledge of the Early Year curriculum would therefore be desirable but not essential as this role will be supported by the child's class teacher. There would also be strong support from the Teacher of the Deaf who runs the HI resourced provision unit in the school, a speech and language therapist and Hampshire's advisory teacher service for HI children.

Part of the role would also be to support HI children at lunchtime to successfully access all outdoor opportunities and support them with peer interactions.

What can we offer you at Park View Infant School?

• To be part of a dedicated team in a school on an exciting journey for rapid improvement. • Lovely children with a positive disposition for learning. • Children who are active learners and decision makers. • Opportunities to work with a variety of outside agencies and professionals. • An environment where all are valued and have a strong sense of belonging. • A friendly and supportive team. • Opportunities to develop yourself professionally through whole staff INSET, specific Hampshire led training courses and course linked to specialist areas of Hearing Impairment.
