Required from: ASAP
4myschools require a learning support assistant with experience of working 1:1 and with small groups of pupils who have specific learning needs and/or complex medical conditions as well as those with ASD and social, emotional and behaviour difficulties.

This is a diverse and exciting role where you will have the opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of our pupils and join our hard working, dedicated team.

- Be resilient, use your initiative and be flexible to adapt to pupils’ changing needs.
- Work collaboratively with dynamic, forward thinking staff with high aspirations for our children.
- Show commitment to your own professional development and be willing to work flexibly and adapt to the needs of the school and its pupils.
The Schools offer a caring, friendly and welcoming environment and are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of their children.
