An exciting opportunity has arisen at Mayplace Primary School for a highly skilled and enthusiastic Teaching Assistant. An understanding of Autism and previous experience in using strategies to enable children to access the curriculum is essential. Experience of using PECS would be an advantage.  Applicants with experience of supporting children with special educational needs in a school setting and who wish to develop their career will be considered.


Mayplace Primary is a fantastic school with amazing pupils. Our adventurous outdoor curriculum enables children to think creatively, problem-solve and experience exciting learning opportunities. Our values of Leading Learning, Love of Learning, Team and Belonging provide a framework for our pupils which supports them in academic excellence as well as becoming clear thinkers who are collaborative with a strong moral compass.

We are an inclusive school which values difference. We understand that each of our children are individual, and we seek to meet their needs through a curriculum which is vibrant, dynamic and practical. We know that children who enjoy their learning are engaged and therefore make the best progress; it is crucial to us that every child achieves the most that they can and becomes the best that they can be.


The school is part of the Primary First Trust, a primary-only family of schools that has already demonstrated a commitment to improving standards and also working with effective professionals on career development both within their individual schools and the wider Trust.
