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.

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.
