Job Details

Learning Support (LSA) - Support Assistant - Teaching Assistant (TA)
PRU (Pupil Referral Unit)
Immediate Start
Day to Day Supply, Short Term, Long Term

I am delighted to be working with a number of Pupil Referral Units (PRU) located in Norwich.

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

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

These schools are registered for Key Stage 2-4 for pupils with Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) needs - previously known as Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties (BESD), Special Educational Needs (SEN.)

The primary activity of the schools 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.

The schools offer positive outcomes to young people of school age who have disengaged, or are at the point of disengaging with education. A significant percentage of the pupils are looked after or children in need.

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