At Highwood we not only promote academic and sporting excellence but we also place a huge emphasis on teaching children the skills they need to become effective learners. The learning behaviours we promote are Perseverance, Teamwork, Curiosity, Creativity, Reflection and Independence. We strongly believe that if our children continually develop these skills alongside making academic progress, then we have been successful in preparing them for our ever-changing world
We are looking to recruit enthusiastic special needs assistants with experience of working with children who need additional support to achieve basic skills. The post holders must be well motivated and used to working autonomously.
The roles will involve supporting children with a range of additional needs, but primarily working with children who have a diagnosis of Autism. These positions would suit an experienced special needs assistant who enjoys the challenge of working with children and delivering a personalised programme of learning.
It is also essential that you would have good communication skills to support the parents of the child and to work within the classroom team. This is a challenging role, which would suit a calm, consistent support assistant. Experience of Intensive Interaction, PECS and Objects of Reference would be preferable, but not essential.
If applying for either of the part time roles, please note that Lunch Times is an integral part of the role and is not subject to change.
