SEND Support Assistant

A primary school in South Manchester are recruiting a Learning Support Assistant to support pupils with Moderate Learning Difficulties.

Many needs can come under the MLD umbrella, including Dyslexia, ADHD, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia and Processing Deficits. And each child will need a tailored approach to suit their learning and needs.

The role
The school require a Learning Support Assistant to work across all year groups to support children on a individual and small group basis. The appointed candidate will be responsible for working along side Teachers, SLT and outside organisations to ensure children's needs are met and they are being given the best support available.
