You will be working with pupils between 3 and 19 years old with complex Special Educational Needs, including Autism, Global Delay, Moderate Learning Difficulties and Speech, Language and Communication Needs. The pupils access a differentiated curriculum, and lessons are adapted to meet specific needs, as outlined in Education, Health and Care Plans. 90% of pupils are non or pre-verbal.

Additional training or experience using Team Teach and/or Intensive Interaction is desirable.

The school is based in the Heaton area of Bradford and is easily accessible by both car and public transport from the local areas. The setting recently moved into a newly refurbished building and benefits from state of the art facilities, a supportive and Senior Leadership Team and a reputable approach to behaviour management - gaining an Outstanding inspection from Ofsted in 2016. There are currently 65 pupils on roll, and you will be joining an established and experienced team of 40 Learning Support Assistants and 12 specialist SEN teachers.
