They cater for students with speech, language and communication needs, learning and cognition difficulties, and students with complex needs, including social, emotional and mental health issues. They are a diverse community where difference is embraced and where the values of tolerance, empathy and compassion are promoted and celebrated. The school is committed to ensuring every individual student maximises their potential and achieves the best possible outcomes, both academic and personal.

  • Work with fellow learning support assistants to identify specific needs of each child
  • Make use of some ‘eye-catching’ instruments like computers to arouse interest in learning by children
  • Work hand-in-hand with the classroom teachers to ensure that activities that are being put in place for children are related to national curriculum
  • Work closely with other professionals like educational psychologists or physiotherapists
  • Teach and mentor students, both collectively and individually
  • Look after student’s social and emotional needs
  • Communicate with students to determine their needs and ensure they are equally met
  • Observe students to find out changes in behaviour or in other areas and report such observations to the classroom teacher
