This is a role working in a school within Cambridgeshire with great ethos and understanding of the children's needs.

A key aspect of working in this field is identifying individual needs and being responsible for creating a safe, stimulating and supportive learning environment.

The work of an SEN teacher is often challenging and varied and may involve:
• teaching either individuals or small groups of pupils within or outside the class;
• preparing lessons and resources;
• marking and assessing work;
• developing and adapting conventional teaching methods to meet the individual needs of pupils;
• using special equipment and facilities, such as audiovisual materials and computers to stimulate interest in learning;
• using specialist skills, such as teaching Braille to pupils with visual impairments or sign language and lip reading to students who have hearing impairments;
• collaborating with the classroom teacher to define appropriate activities for the pupils in relation to the curriculum;
• assessing children who have long or short-term learning difficulties and working with colleagues to identify individual pupils' special needs;
• liaising with other professionals, such as social workers, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists and educational psychologists;
• liaising closely with parents and guardians;
• organising learning outside the classroom in activities such as community visits, school outings or sporting events;
• assisting in severely disabled pupils' personal care/medical needs;
• administration, including updating and maintaining records on pupils' progress;
• attending statutory annual reviews or other related meetings, such as Looked After Child (LAC) reviews, regarding students with an SEN, which may involve reviewing statements of special educational needs;
• receiving in-service training;
• behaviour management.
