The Integrated Disability Service brings together teams from across Education and Health to provide support for children and young people with disabilities. The Complex Needs and Physical Disabilities teams work in mainstream schools and settings in partnership with parents and staff in order to advise, recommend and support strategies aimed at helping children with complex learning needs and/or physical disabilities to access their learning, achieve their potential and be included as fully as possible. 

The Role

The Complex Needs Team supports children in mainstream schools who have an EHCP for severe learning difficulties (SLD or CLDD). 

The Physical Disability Team provides support to schools to improve access to buildings and facilities, to ensure pupils are getting their curriculum entitlement and to help support the social well-being of pupils with physical difficulties. Both teams may support children with life-limiting medical conditions which impact significantly on their learning. Some staff work within both teams, and this role is intended to work with both caseloads. As a specialist teacher within the Complex Needs/Physical Disability team you will provide support to schools to ensure the best possible inclusive education for children with complex learning needs and/or physical disabilities 

Required for September 2018.
