Vale School is seeking to appoint permanent Special Needs School Meals Supervisory Assistants for the Vale Secondary and Primary departments.


Vale School is a unique all age special school for pupils with physical disabilities, a wide range of special educational needs including physical disabilities, sensory impairments, medical conditions, learning difficulties, developmental delay, communication difficulties and emotional and behavioural needs.


The school is located in purpose built accommodation attached to primary schools (Lancasterian, Belmont) and a secondary school (Dukes Academy). This offers our pupils the best practices of a special school combined with the opportunities and challenges offered by our mainstream partners.


We are looking for caring and committed people to attend to our pupils’ needs during the lunchtime period. Experience of working with children or young adults and/or disability would be an advantage.


This is an exciting opportunity to develop specialised skills in working with pupils with high level care needs. Successful applicants will receive full training and support.
