KS1 LSA needed for September

Posted 20 June by Oxford Education Featured Ended
A small, friendly special needs school catering for children who display emotional and behavioural difficulties based in Slough, is looking for a KS1 LSA for September 2018. The school's aim and ethos is to provide a safe and calm learning environment for children aged 5-11 who find it hard to build relationships and learn effectively at school due to their often very challenging behaviour.

The role is to assist small groups of children with emotional and behavioural difficulties. You will need to have experience of working in a special school or similar environment and above all an understanding of how to approach and work with primary aged children who can display very challenging, and sometimes aggressive behaviour.

The ideal LSA will be emotionally very resilient as they will come up against new challenges daily and need to understand that building relationships with the children will be a slow and at times frustrating process. You will need to be capable of implementing physical interventions where necessary and have the insight and knowledge to use de-escalation techniques when appropriate.

Above all a calm, patient and enthusiastic LSA will be ideal in this role, and experience of working with children with challenging behaviour.
