Are you a competent Teaching Assistant wanting to move into Special Education? Have you had SEN experience and want to move into a new learning environment?
Pertemps Education are pleased to be in partnership with school which is a small, pupil-led Resource Base/Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) located in Sudbury, Suffolk.
We are looking for Teaching Assistants with excellent communication, literacy and numeracy skills and the ability to deal with very challenging behaviour (SEMH – Social Emotional Mental Health). The position is immediate start but regular supply opportunities are available with this school if this is what you are more inclined to enjoy.
You will work with a range of ages and the work will depend on the age of the children and their individual needs, but may include:
- preparing learning materials under the supervision of the teacher
- working inside or outside the classroom with individuals or groups
- adapting support according to needs
- looking after children's physical, social and emotional welfare (SEMH)
- creating a stimulating environment
- giving information and help to teachers
- keeping records and attending review meetings
This inspirational residential school is registered for Key Stage 2-5 for pupils with Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) needs - previously known as Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties (BESD), Special Educational Needs (SEN) and planning a separate Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) unit in 2020.
All pupils receive individualised programmes which support their transition into the school environment.
The school offers positive outcomes to young people of school age who have disengaged, or are at the point of disengaging with education. Many of these pupils are known to the criminal justice system and a significant percentage of the pupils are looked after or children in need. Most have been excluded from at least one school.
Despite these challenges, the school supports their pupils in achieving a wide range of accredited outcomes in examinations and other courses. There is a sense of pride, purpose and achievement. Importantly, more than 80% of the pupils are in education, training or employment six months after leaving.
