If you have answered yes to the above questions then I have the perfect role for you!

A few children in a behaviour provision school require 1:1 support, for pupils that could be primary or secondary aged. The children in question have a variety of SEN statements and need support with their reading, writing and social interactions within the classroom.

The children will need a mentor who can be patient, empathetic and kind as you work together throughout the school day. This will be a full-time position, for a full academic year, which will give you the time to develop a strong relationship and really help them progress and work towards their full potential.

The objective is for the pupil to embrace every moment of their Primary school life and have the same opportunities as everyone else. The academic progress needed will help them work to the government guidelines, so they won't fall behind their age groups. The social development is important to help them in the future as they grow into an independent adult.

The school is looking for a mentor who has previous experience and/or qualifications in working with Special Educational Needs and young children. You must be available from September 2019 and available to trial before the end of the academic year.

However if you don't have experience and are passionate and resilient and feel committed to this role or want to find out more - please do give us a call.
