With over 100 high quality schools, colleges and homes we focus on making a real and lasting difference for everyone we support.

Newbury Manor School is a specialist school for 30 young people aged 7 to 19 who have autistic spectrum disorders (ASD). Our tailored approach means we are able to support young people with a wide range of needs, from those who are broadly average in their ability to others, who have more severe learning difficulties.

We provide a total environment where young people are offered safe, secure and predictable surroundings in which they can come to understand their own areas of difficulties and learn skills and techniques in order to overcome them. This ensures that they are able to fulfil their potential socially, academically, physically and spiritually and enable them to rebuild their low self-esteem and self-belief.

We take pride in the environment we can offer. The school is located in a beautiful, quiet, rural location in Somerset in a Georgian manor house, which has a range of outbuildings and extensive grounds. Our ethos was created in the belief that a positive, supportive, achieving culture is essential for good pupil progress. We seek to maximise independence and individual potential so pupils gain the skills to live happy, meaningful and fulfilling lives.

We are looking for a practitioner with a passion and knowledge surrounding ASD and sensory processing disorders.  The successful applicant will be HCPC registered and will hold BSc Occupational Therapy or profession specific equivalent qualification.

Experience of working with children with complex needs is essential.  You will have an experience/awareness of Sensory Processing Disorders and the application of sensory integration theory in practice, assessment and clinical observations and you will be able to demonstrate a dynamic and creative approach to delivering treatment approaches.

This role will have a strategic element, whereby you will assess, deliver and review therapeutic provision to our young people. it is also expected that you will provide training to the staff team to ensure a consistent and coherent approach is maintained.

You will benefit from a bespoke induction package, support & access to training and development (internal and external), regular supervision & appraisal and the support of a committed therapy team.
