Newhall Infant and Nursery School is seeking a Learning Support Assistant to provide one to one support for a child with challenging behaviours and Autism.

You will support the child to control their emotions and to access learning wherever possible.

We are looking for someone who is resilient, calm under pressure, thinks on their feet and adapts well to changing situations. A positive and patient manner is essential.

Some experience with children with challenging behaviours and Autism would be an advantage. Knowledge of PDA would be a huge advantage! However, the right character is more important than experience!

Newhall Infant and Nursery is a fabulous school with wonderful children and an amazing dedicated staff team. Our ethos is one of kindness and you can feel it as you walk through the door!

We would welcome you to come and have a look around our lovely school and a chat about the role. Please call the school office on 01283 216496 to arrange a convenient time.

Due to this post having access to children and/or vulnerable adults, the successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check. The possession of a criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post, as all cases are judged individually according to the nature of the role and information provided.
