We are seeking to appoint a Health and Welfare Support Assistant (HWSA) with the capacity to support the health and welfare needs of all pupils at Saxon Hill.

With the support of a HWSA Team Leader you will support the pupils in several areas across school. Predominantly this will be safely administering enteral feeding and supporting the administration of medication but may also include elements of supporting personal and intimate care, pupils’ physical needs, therapies and classroom support.

The successful candidate will be pupil-focused and have the desire and ability to support all of our students with care and mutual respect. You will be able to work as part of a team with energy and enthusiasm and be keen to learn and develop. You will also have a strong commitment to improving the lives of all of our pupils and ensuring they are happy, comfortable, safe and ready to learn.

A proven track record of working successfully with vulnerable children and/ or adults in an education, health or care context and excellent communication skills are essential for this role. Ideally you will have experience of enteral feeding and experience of the necessary clinical competencies to carry out enteral feeding and the administration of enteral medication.

The school is committed to the safeguarding and wellbeing of students and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to undergo appropriate child protection screening including a DBS check.
