At Blue Coat, we believe that you have to be prepared to think differently in order to make a difference; we embrace this in our vision, our staff and our pupils.

We are looking for someone to join our dedicated team to support the learning of a Key Stage 2 child with a diagnosis of ASD and difficulties in attention and memory, information processing and social understanding.

We will offer you a long list of benefits, topped by:

• Children who are a pleasure to work with
• A supportive, innovative and committed school team with a strong community feel
• A commitment to your continued professional development

The successful candidate will work 12.5hrs spread over 4 or 5 mornings supporting the pupil, in a one-to-one, small group or class setting, tailoring learning to meet their specific needs. There may be the opportunity for further hours in the future.
