September Start
Long Term to Permanent
Lowestoft - Suffolk

I am delighted to be working with an Ofsted Good Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) located in Lowestoft.

The School have three wonderful opportunities for experienced SEN LSA's. The school ensures that referred pupils have access to an enrichment curriculum focusing on English, Maths and Science.

We are looking for candidates with excellent communication, literacy and numeracy skills, as well as the ability to deal with very challenging behaviour.

This is a long term role which will be made permanent for the right post holders.

You will work with a range of ages and the work will depend on the age of the children and their individual needs, but may include:

o  Preparing learning materials under the supervision of the teacher
o  Working inside or outside the classroom with individuals or groups
o  Adapting support according to needs
o  Looking after children's physical, social and emotional welfare
o  Creating a stimulating environment
o  Giving information and help to teachers
o  Keeping records and attending review meetings

This inspirational school is registered for Key Stage 2-4 and caters for pupils with Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) needs - previously known as Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties (BESD), Special Educational Needs (SEN.)

All pupils receive individualised programmes which support their transition into the school environment.

The primary activity of the school is the provision of specialist education services to young people with Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) needs - previously known as Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties (BESD.)

They work with the most disaffected, challenging pupils in the South East. Pupils have often been excluded from numerous schools and have been out of full-time education for some time. Many of these pupils are known to the criminal justice system and a significant percentage of the pupils are looked after or children in need.

Despite these challenges, the school supports their pupils in achieving a wide range of accredited outcomes in examinations and other courses.

If you have experience working with young people with EBD and SEMH needs, please do get in touch with Jamie Keen on 01245 392580 or email jamie.keen@ednetwork.co.uk
