You will need to offer a nurturing, safe and non-judgemental space for children who display challenging behaviour. These pupils might be LAC (Looked After Children) or from a disadvantaged background so it’s essential that you are patient and empathetic. You must provide an excellent contribution to their education and lives. The school is based in Bodmin, and although you will be working 1:1 it may be asked that occasionally you assist small groups of students. As well as supporting their learning, you will be tracking their school and personal progression and working closely with other teachers to ensure all needs are met and classes are tailored to each of the children’s individual needs.

This role would particularly suit:

•            Teaching Assistants looking for a new challenge

•            People with experience working in a SEN setting

•            People who are wanting to gain more experience and further their career
