Job description
A good' Ofsted rated school in Bristol are looking for TA's to start full time in January. This SEND school supports children with SEMH needs between the ages 11-16. All staff work to inspire, motivate, challenge and support each pupil, no matter what their individual needs may be.

Work will be during school hours and will consist of both 1:1 and group support sessions. This represents a fantastic opportunity to develop your career in education.
