Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) Therapist
Stifford Clays Primary School are looking to recruit a talented individual to help establish and shape our brand new Autistic Spectrum Disorder Resource Base funded directly by the Local Authority to eventually accommodate ten children. The successful candidates will have a passion for working with young children and for assisting them to overcome their personal or behavioural issues which are often a barrier to pupils achieving their full potential. Applicants with experience of working with pupils who have ASD are desirable but support will be given by the ASD Base Manager and on-the-job training provided. As a member of staff, you will be valued and supported; in return, we are looking for commitment, drive and enthusiasm.
Why Stifford Clays Primary School?
We are a community-focused school for 2 to 11 year olds, located centrally in the Stifford Clays ward of Thurrock. The original infant and junior schools were built in 1954 and were one form of entry. The school has grown hugely to accommodate 90 children in each year group.
Stifford Clays Primary School is an extremely happy and positive school. We are an Ofsted ‘Good’ school (2022) where ‘’pupils love coming to school’’ and “staff work together to set high expectations; which pupils now strive to meet’’. Our personal development provision is ‘outstanding’.
At South West Essex Community Education Trust, we are passionate about providing the best start in life for our pupils. We are united in the belief that every young person needs and deserves an education that will maximise their future life chances.
We place our pupils’ needs at the heart of everything we do and support our colleagues in delivering high-quality education. Our vision is to establish a national reputation for the quality of education we provide.
Our academies are united by the things that make us both similar and unique – the DNA that ties us all together. The SWECET DNA is made up of the following components: Developing our people, Nurturing our differences, and Aspiring for excellence.
We believe that our colleagues are our most precious resource to provide high-quality learning experiences for all our pupils. Our colleagues work hard to support teams in their own schools and across the Trust and in return, the SWECET Wellbeing Charter [LINK] sets out our actions to support our colleagues.
If you have energy and passion in abundance and would relish the opportunity to be part of our team, we look forward to hearing from you. Visits from prospective candidates are warmly welcomed and encouraged. To arrange a visit, please email [email protected].
