Pupils have a range of educational needs including Autism and Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs – which has made it difficult for them to attend mainstream schooling.

You will be joining an experienced team of staff, skilled in working with children with ASC. You will ideally have expertise in working with visual prompts and timetables, PECS, TEACCH, and Objects of Reference.

As a Nurture Practitioner, your role will include:

* Supporting schoolwork under the supervision of the teacher

* Putting into practice individual education, social, behavioural and personal care programmes
