I am looking for someone to work in one of my Specialist Primary Pupil Referral Units. They are a specialist therapeutic and educational placement for children who cannot attend mainstream school because of social, emotional, and mental health needs, or who have been permanently excluded from school.

They are currently looking for a Learning Support Assistant to join their team. The current team works to meet the social, emotional, mental health and academic needs of highly vulnerable children, to help them make progress in all areas and be ready for their next stage in learning.

Sometimes a child stays with them for only a short period, whilst another placement is being sought. As part of the team, you will help to facilitate the transfer from one educational establishment to another, ensuring that the children experience educational and emotional stability throughout the transition period. My site provides a stimulating and secure learning environment for pupils and give each pupil a positive experience of school.
