My client is an 'Outstanding' Ofsted rated school based in the London Borough of Sutton. They are seeking to appoint a creative and skilful SEN Teacher Assistant to join their team from November 2020.

They are seeking someone who is able to demonstrate both excellent classroom practice and an up-to-date understanding of the latest developments in special needs best practise.

The SEN School

Pupils are taught in classes of up to 9 pupils with a specialist teacher with usually 4 special school support assistants. The children follow a topic based curriculum which is modified to take account of their individual learning needs. Most of the pupils in the school have a diagnosis of Autism. The school has worked hard to make the school an ASD friendly environment and you can see the results as pupils find the school a low stress environment which in turn reduces challenging behaviour. The school uses a structured teaching approach (TEACCH) throughout the school.

Experience supporting an ASD/SLD class in a similar UK SEN school would be beneficial although as the class are well behaved and the support staff amongst the strongest in the school and the Headteacher is very happy to support primary trained teachers with a good track record and an interest in SEN.
