Job/Person Summary


Autism Resource Base – Teaching Assistant


Grade 6 – 30 hours per week, term time only


We are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated Teaching Assistants to work in our new expanding Autism Resource Base (ARB) at Bitterne Park School.


This new exciting secondary specialist provision is aimed at educating and developing children who, due to their autism, find mainstream school setting a huge challenge.


The aims of the ARB are to provide a challenging and appropriate academic provision, whilst developing students’ individual social and communication skills. The role within the ARB is also one which supports sensory and anxiety difficulties, and any associated challenging behaviours.


The ARB has developed by building upon the principles, experience and successes of the previous provision, which was described as a ‘Sanctuary of wonderfulness’ by an Ofsted Inspector during a recent inspection of the school.


The ARB is run by Bitterne Park School in partnership with the Local Authority.  The provision is expanding to meet demand within the city.
