Job description

Experienced SEN Support Assistant required for specialist SEN School in Leeds

  • SEN Support experience
  • Competitive pay rates of up to £85 per day
  • Team Teach, PECS, Intensive Interaction and/or Moving and Handling trained

Teaching Personnel are currently working with a specialist SEN School in Leeds who are seeking an experienced Learning Support Assistant to join their team, with an opportunity to become a permanent member of staff. The school is a generic all age (2-19) special school catering for children with a wide range of needs; profound, multiple and complex conditions, autistic spectrum conditions, severe learning difficulties.

The curriculum is carefully planned, highly differentiated and well-resourced to meet the needs of all pupils. There is a high degree of personalisation. Life-long learning, life skills and future independence are key priorities running through all curriculum and individual learner outcomes.

The classrooms and teaching areas are attractive, use high quality resources and are well maintained. It is of equal importance that classrooms take account of the learning needs of the specific learning disabilities.

There is a distinct rationale for classrooms catering for those with an autistic spectrum condition (ASC) and this is based on the good practice guidelines from the National Autistic Society (NAS) and EYFS ‘Guidance for Good Autism Practice’ . In classrooms for ASC pupils these are low stimulus and minimal arousal, meaning that displays are kept to a bare minimum. Well-designed and produced visual support materials are used.
