  • Have a good knowledge and experience of working with SEN, ASD and AHDH;
  • Have an awareness of emotional and mental health needs in children;

  • Have the ability to create and support effective teamwork;
  • Possess the personal skills needed to be able to communicate effectively within the school and with a range of external professionals, parents and governors.
  • Be committed to continuing professional development
  • Be a proactive learner and willing to work collaboratively
  • Make a positive contribution to our school
  • Be passionate about inclusion and the learning and development of every child

We offer:
