Job description

A school situated on the Croydon/Sutton border are currently looking for teaching assistants that have experience working with young people with profound multiple learning difficulties (PMLD). The pupils that attend this school are aged between 2 - 19.

If you enjoy working in a challenging environment where every day is different from the rest then this school could be an ideal work place for you.

Your main duties will include:
·Inspiring and engaging with pupils with physical and mental difficulties.
·Assessing individual learning needs and working on a group basis.
·Preparing materials, equipment and lessons

·Assisting with the personal care needs of pupils; this may include feeding, changing and manual handling.

To find out more about the role please apply and I will get in touch.

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.
