Oaklands School provides education for children and young people with complex, long term additional support needs where learners require a significantly modified learning environment. Needs of learners are primarily associated with a learning disability and significant visual / sensory, health and medical needs.
Oaklands School is looking for a creative, open minded and passionate individual to join our school team as a Pupil Support Assistant.
This individual would need to be a highly motivated team player with the interests of our wonderful children and young people at the heart of their practice.
Oaklands is a unique place in which creativity, flexibility and the ability to work with and lead a team are essential qualities.
Every member of staff at Oaklands (from HT down) has a duty of care to ensure the basic needs of our children and young people are met. This includes assisting with personal care and supporting with eating and drinking.
At Oaklands, we consider this to be a privilege and know that, in order for our pupils to flourish in their learning (and in all other aspects of their lives); we need to work as a team.
The successful candidate should show an understanding and appreciation of the importance of teamwork and the confidence to listen and to learn from others, while, at the same time, show a willingness to lead by example.
At Oaklands we are driven by our values of kindness, respect and dignity and are hugely passionate about providing enriching and positive experiences for our children and young people, from Nursery to our Senior leavers.
