Situated in close to central Exeter and with excellent links to public transport the school is easily accessible.
The role is five days a week, full time and will go on till the end of Summer 2020. The position is general in-class support - you may be expected to work one to one, in small groups or providing general in-class support as required. Experience of working with children and young people with PMLD is essential. Many of the children are non verbal and the ability to use Makaton would be highly advantageous.

This is a temporary position unless otherwise stated.
Please note: The details of this job are correct as of the start of the school closures. We anticipate that there will still be a need to fill this vacancy either on the expected timescale (as many of the schools we work with will remain open to support SEND/Keyworker children) or when schools re-open. We are therefore continuing to accept applications but please bear with us as there may be a delay on the listed start date due to the fact that the situation is continually evolving.
