Job summary

The Role

Being a Midday Assistant is a great way to make a difference to a young person's life and gain experience of working in a special school. You'll play a very important role in helping our pupils at lunchtime develop their skills in eating and drinking, and learn to be part of a group.
You are likely to be working with the same small group of pupils every day, so it is important that you can commit to being there every day during term-time to build up a relationship.
Experience is welcome, but not essential as we offer plenty of training and support, but you'll need a flexible approach and be willing to learn.
