Have you got experience working with children or with adults with additional needs?

Do you want to help support pupils and make a positive difference on their education?

We are looking for an enthusiastic and resilient individual to work with pupils between the ages of 4 and 17.

As a Specialist Outreach and Inclusion Support Team the school provides appropriate, targeted responses through verbal advice, observations, capacity building and training. Support from the school can be focused on the needs of the pupils or by supporting the school and its staff as a whole. The school motto is "Exploring, Discovering, Achieving". They aim high for all pupils and teaching and learning strategies are matched to meet their individual needs and learning style. The pupils are grouped according to their individual needs, age and cognitive ability.
