We are seeking to appoint a caring and committed SEN Learning Support Assistant to work alongside a pupil who will be joining us in September in EYFS.

  • Use strategies to encourage the pupil’s independence.
  • Help the pupil in developing social awareness and forming friendships.
  • Be positive in outlook and flexible and adaptable to the needs of the child and the classroom setting.
