At Longcause School we are passionate about our pupils. We aim to be a school that delivers what it promises for our pupils and families, by delivering first class learning for pupils with Autism, by encapsulating individual interests and strengths.

If you are a Teaching Assistant who is passionate about SEN, and enjoys the rewards and challenges of working with children, we would love to hear from you.

The ideal candidate will have a passion for working with children, particularly those with special educational needs.  You will have a talent for engaging with sometimes complex and difficult children, encouraging social interaction, developing independence, self-esteem, and encouraging all individuals to achieve their goals.
