Academics are recruiting on behalf of an SEN school in Chichester which caters for 80 boys aged 7-16 years who have Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs (SEMH). They have a range of additional needs including Autism, ADHD, Attachment Disorders, Anxiety and Speech and Language Delay.
They are looking for a number of Teaching Assistants, ideally with experience of working in an SEN/SEMH school, or with a keen interest in working with pupils with challenging behaviours.

You need to be able to build positive relationships with the boys, be able to think on your feet, be resilient and remain calm in challenging situations.
