• Excellent communicators, able to develop confidence in others to adjust, adapt and accommodate difference to enable access to our taught social curriculum

• Good humoured and flexible, flexible, flexible!

The post will occasionally require lone working and candidates will need to be self-reliant, well organised and comfortable in a range of working environments.

WE OFFER YOU:

• Excellent professional development and promotion opportunities;

• Brunel Perks – exclusive discounts on a range of products and retailers;

• Enthusiastic and supportive colleagues, parents & Governors;

• An opportunity to shape the future of the school and the staff and pupils within it.
