·         Creating a supportive and inclusive learning environment where SEN students feel valued, respected, and empowered to succeed.

·         Establishing effective communication channels with parents/carers, keeping them informed about their child’s progress and involving them in the development of individual support plans.

·         Additional Requirement: The right candidate will be working closely with a child with diabetes. Therefore, experience overseeing or administering diabetes medication is essential.


·         Previous experience working with SEN students in a school setting is essential.

·         A relevant qualification in SEN support or education (e.g., Level 3 Teaching Assistant qualification, CACHE Diploma in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools) is desirable.

·         Strong interpersonal and communication skills, with the ability to build positive relationships with students, colleagues, and parents/carers.

·         Patience, empathy, and a genuine passion for supporting the learning and well-being of SEN students.

·         Flexibility and adaptability to meet the changing needs of SEN students and the school environment.
