Learning Support Assistant – LSA – Teaching Assistant – SEN – Chertsey
The school is based in Chertsey, Surrey and provides support for secondary aged pupils who have a wide range of learning and behavioural needs. All students that attend the school have a designated Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) which details their specific needs in terms of the care and support they will have access to.
The school provides a unique, specialist environment that closely fits the needs and challenges that the students face. The school offers a therapeutic curriculum that offers all the subjects that a secondary aged student should expect. Some of the students will go on to achieve GCSE and Functional Skills qualifications, so at this stage of their education, it is vitally important that they establish sound understanding of key subjects such as maths and English. Your job will be to support this journey to help them access further education or training.
