You will be working in either one class or working 1:1 with your selected student. This schools looks after children with Autism, Moderate Learning Difficulties, Complex Needs (some wheelchair bound students) and Behavioural difficulties. Although, most of the time you will spend within one class.
To be eligible to apply for this position, it is essential that you have experience supporting pupils with Autism. In addition to this, PECS and/or Makaton will be useful in this post; however, training will be provided.
You will need to be available to start immediately, as well as being able to commit to working full school hour stated above. As this is especially important when supporting pupils with limited communication skills.

You will need to:
• be willing to make an outstanding contribution to our school
• be committed to high standards and improving achievement for all
• be able to provide a friendly and warm welcome to our parents, governors, and the wider Community
