A gorgeous school set on a 30-acre rural estate is looking for a SEN Learning Support Assistant (LSA). They will join a dedicated team who work with children with complex needs including Autism, ADHD, Down Syndrome and SEMH needs.

Your main focus as a SEN LSA is to facilitate learning across a personalised curriculum aiming to build confidence and life skills as well encouraging the children to build positive relationships with peers. Due to the school’s location, the school puts a great emphasise on outside learning and uses its own facilities to foster independence and creativity. As a SEN LSA you will work with individual pupils to support their everyday learning.

This is a rewarding role where progress is visible every day!
