We’re looking for a resilient, determined and proactive individual to join our school. They will support a wonderful pupil who has physical and learning difficulties and needs to be supported in class to develop their cognition and communication.

They love meeting new people and increasingly communicate through Makaton and verbal noise.

The correct candidate will be supported in their training to ensure they can further support our pupil with their medical needs which means they can be prone to aspirating and need to use a gastronomy tube flush. The correct candidate will be rewarded by supporting a warm, happy and engaging individual who needs their curriculum individualised to make the most of their learning. You will be supported in this by working closely with the class teacher and SENco.

You will understand the importance of communicating with other professionals and also the family of the pupil. You’ll do all this whilst capturing the spirit of our vision and values and whilst role-modelling exceptional professional behaviours.

We are determined to support our colleagues to develop and will incorporate CPD appropriate to the role. This is a fantastic opportunity to be rewarded by supporting the learning of a really warm and kind pupil.

So, if you’re an enthusiastic and inspiring individual and have the right skills and personal attributes we would love to hear from you.
