Crucial to the success of this post is an ability to work as part of a team and independently, to be super organised and have experience of using de-escalation techniques. We are not looking for candidates with specific qualifications; the key thing is the experience you will have had in a school environment working with children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs. Applicants must have a full driving licence and have access to use of a car. Successful candidates will be required to provide an enhanced Disclosure (DBS). This disclosure cost will be met by Fair Ways.
