The main responsibility of this position as LSA is to assist students with individual learning needs. ICHK has a policy of inclusion where it is expected that the individual child will be able to function effectively in the ordinary classroom, and with the aim, ideally, of progressively offering less or different support as time goes on.

The LSA will be responsible for carrying out the following duties, wherever appropriate:

  • To provide support to the student during school hours (8:15 A.M. to 3:30 P.M. on Monday to Friday in accordance with the ICHK school calendar) and, if agreed and with due financial consideration, during extra-curricular activities that may take place after school hours.
  • To work on a one-on-one basis with students and help them to meet their individual potential and any targets as advised by the Learning Support team at ICHK in and out of the classroom.
  • To help the student maintain and develop appropriate social skills to support them in being a fully integrated member of the class.
  • To support the student in accessing and understanding concepts, processes and systems covered within the curriculum.
  • To provide feedback about the student’s progress to the school and the student’s parent with the support of the Learning Support team and teachers.
  • To assist in the implementation of the relevant Individual Education Programme (IEP).
  • To have awareness of the philosophy of ICHK and follow the school ethos.
  • To attend relevant meetings within working hours.
  • To maintain a positive relationship with the Student, the Student’s Parent and staff.
  • To take part in staff professional development, if any, as recommended and provided by ICHK.
  • To respect the confidentiality of sensitive information and report relating to the student.
