You will need good literacy and numeracy skills, and the ability to motivate children to achieve the best they can in a patient and sympathetic manner. Any previous experience of working with children with SEN , Makaton and within the Early Years would be an advantage. A willingness to work as part of a team, as well as taking your own initiative when required, is essential. The ability to build effective working relationships with both children and adults is also essential for this post.  You will have patience, flexibility and a very positive “can do” attitude.  You will be calm and confident in your approach and will be willing to take part in further on-going training to develop your role. 

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
