Scale 4 (33.42 hrs per week)


The Vale School is seeking to appoint Special Needs Assistants for the Vale Secondary and Primary departments and for the Belmont Inclusion scheme, supporting our pupils in mainstream classes.


The Vale is a unique all age special school for pupils with physical disabilities and associated special educational needs. The school is located in purpose built accommodation attached to primary schools (Lancasterian, Belmont) and a secondary school (Duke’s). 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 to appoint Special Needs Assistants with experience of special needs to join an excellent team of professional and dedicated colleagues. Experience of working with children or young adults with SEN or disabilities is essential.

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. 


Please note successful applicants will be required to pass a three month probation period.



The Vale is committed to a rigorous approach to safeguarding and this forms an integral part of our recruitment process
