Job Advert Role Description

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.

Based in a listed manor house set in beautiful countryside, you will work as part of a specialist team of teachers and therapists to deliver personalised curriculum packages that motivate and inspire our students. Experience as a teaching assistant would be useful, but as long as you have the communication and caring skills required for this role, we will give you all the training and development you need to succeed.

Whilst not essential, experience of supporting children with SLD and complex needs would be an advantage.

Successful candidates will contribute to the effective implementation of individual programmes by supporting the teaching and learning, social and independence activities and experiences, which enhance the learning and development of children and Young People.

You must also be able to demonstrate a high degree of emotional resilience and the ability to remain calm under pressure.

A clean driving licence with at least 3 years driving experience would be an advantage due to the location of the school.

We currently have full time and part time roles available, and in addition to our permanent roles we are also seeking to make a fixed term appointment to cover a period of maternity leave.

Your Benefits

  • Priory Perks reward and discount scheme
  • Comprehensive induction
  • Pension scheme
  • We cover the cost of your enhanced disclosure check
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Commitment to your ongoing training and career progression
  • Employee recognition scheme.
