The child requires support with all aspects of personal care including toileting and you will be required to support the child throughout break and lunch times to help them get around school.
The child walks aided with a frame and has access to a laptop to use in lessons to aid them in completing their work. The child also has mild learning difficulties and the successful person should be confident in supporting all aspects of the Key Stage 1 curriculum.
The successful person should have a calm and nurturing manner. Previous experience working in a similar role would be beneficial as would recent moving and handling training.
