On occasion you will be expected to work alongside children with special educational needs such as Autism, ADHD and SEMH. For two sessions a week you will also be expected to plan and deliver small activities centred around the children and their phonics development. The school use Letters and Sounds and Jolly Phonics in the lower school and any experience would be preferable.
