• Recording all progress and any incidents throughout the day and relaying this information to the SENCO.

• Following the IEP, ensuring they are effectively working towards their targets.

• Using effective behaviour management when they become defiant, in line with the school's behaviour management policy.

• Liaising with the SENCO and other support staff regularly - discuss strategies to support the children during lessons.

• Preparing resources to assist the children in lessons.

• Taking the children to a designated area away from the classroom when they become anxious, stressed or upset.

• Carrying out general administrative duties as required e.g. photocopying, wall displays etc.

Essential skills and attributes:

• Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

• Professional working manner.

• Experience of working with children with challenging behaviour.

• Good understanding of the Primary School curriculum.

• Excellent behaviour management skills.

• Good working knowledge of SEMH.
