All have a wide range of complex additional needs including autism, speech language and communication needs (including being non- verbal and having English as an additional language), general developmental delays and physical and medical needs including epilepsy, need to hoist and being tube fed.Intimate care is also required by a number of our pupils. (Training will be provided as appropriate)

Lunchtime and breaktime supervision will all be a requirement of this role.

We welcome applications from those who are pro-active and flexible in their working practice as well as those able to ‘think-on-their-feet’ in what are often very challenging circumstances. This role is permanent (subject to our standard 6-month probationary period) and is for 12 hours per week, term time only. The hours are worked over two full days, 08:45am - 03:15pm with a 30 minute lunch break. This is subject to change pending operational need and in negotiation with the successful candidate.
