Many of the pupils have low mobility so urgently require someone who is Moving & Handling trained. The pupils need someone with experience who is dedicated to working with SEN pupils.

The lessons are delivered to be sensory stimulating and interactive for the pupils, so experience with this type of lesson is advantageous.
