I am working with a very pleasant PRU school like no other and personally can vouch for them as I work very closely with the senior members and have visited a few times. The student's behaviour may be challenging at times or most times but you will be quick to understand that this is a result of their background. Many children have been either exposed or a victim of abuse and neglect. As beautiful, as London is as a city there will always going to be areas within that contradict the glamourised image of this. Almost all of these students have been raised in an area where this negatively affected their mental, social and emotional health. This is why the school is very passionate about finding Learning Support Assistants with relatable experience to provide their students with pastoral and academic support. This school is growing bigger and better year by year and has found a healthy balance of old school and modern culture, by this I mean the school isn't so consumed with academic statistics to a point where the children are exhausted, burnt out, or agitated. They have a healthy balance of play, free time and academics and as a result of this, of this approach they found that their students have responded in accordance and due to the schools pass rates have been increasing steadily over the past few years.

Your role:
  • Supporting students with their academic learning and their day-to-day routines.
  • Providing a natural pastoral support with effective communication.
  • Liaising with healthcare professionals, discussing any safeguarding concerns if needed etc…
  • Being a positive influence and not only your designated students but to everybody around you.
  • Resilient and professional behaviour
  • Education and Training will be included.
