What we can offer you:

· Regular professional development, often alongside teachers and the senior team, including with our specialist speech and language therapists

· A friendly and supportive team

· Term time working - 13 weeks holiday a year

· Overtime available through running extra-curricular activities

· Opportunities to specialise and develop skills

· First Aid Training

· Trauma Perceptive Practice Training

Closing date: Thursday 23rd November 2023
