Job description
Health Care Assistant.
A Health Care Assistant is required to work in a school in the London Borough of Islington. This role will involve working one to one with a student with SLD (Severe Learning Difficulties) and complex medical needs.
The school caters for children aged between 3-19 years with SLD and complex medical conditions, severe communication disorders, bi-modal sensory impairment and challenging behaviours.
Within this role.
You must have experience working with Special Needs for this Health Care Assistant role and be willing to undertake any personal care duties such as feeding and changing. Most children will have specific medical needs so you may be required to undertake training for the role in order to conduct specific medical duties.
If you have Paediatric medical training OR come from a nursing/respite care background, this role would be ideal for you.



We undertake safeguarding checks on all our workers in accordance with the DfE statutory guidance Keeping Children Safe in Education'. As part of these checks, we require a current Enhanced DBS Disclosure for everyone working in schools. If you do not have a valid subscription to the DBS Update Service, we will require you to complete a new DBS application as part of the registration process, at a cost of £44.00.
