Special Needs Assistant

 Scale 4 (33.42 hrs per week)


Vale School is a unique all age special school for pupils with 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 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.
