Job description

Our client school are looking for a Support Assistant with the ability to support pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties and associated challenging behaviours.

The pupils are all male, aged between 5-12 years old, and have significant learning difficulties as a result of their emotional and behavioural problems. They may also have MLD, ASC, SpLD, ODD, ADHD and OCD. Their attitudes towards and capacities for learning will vary considerably. The school therefore place great emphasis on differentiation of activities and materials to take account of individual learning styles. They take a proactive approach to identify all potential problems and avoid their escalation through addressing issues physically, emotionally and socially. The individual needs and difficulties of each pupil can be met through a variation of class-based, group and individual strategies involving a wide range of teaching skills, perspectives and resources.

The school are looking for a candidate (ideally with Team Teach training) to start ASAP.

You will ideally have experience supporting young people with behavioural difficulties and SEN. You must be resilient, quick-thinking, enthusiastic and understanding.

The working hours will be 9am - 3pm. 


Please contact me ASAP as the school would like to meet suitable candidates immediately.
