Job description

You will work closely with other school staff in supporting the child you are working with, often tracking and reviewing the child’s progress. You will assist with school work in various subjects, and will often need to find ways to keep that pupil engaged in lessons. You will need to build a relationship and gain trust from the pupil in order for you to help them improve and raise their attainment in school.

Suitable applicants will;

- Have knowledge of and an interest in autism and other behavioural difficulties

- Have experience of working with children with special needs
