We are looking to appoint enthusiastic LSAs to provide support for learning activities by children on an individual or group basis. Experience of working with Deaf or Hearing Impaired children and young people is advantageous, but not essential.
Elmfield is a maintained Bristol Special School for pupils aged 2-16 years which serves the Bristol and wider region. We have been consistently judged as “Good” with “Outstanding” features by OFSTED. Pupils have deafness as a primary need, some with additional Special Educational Needs, and we provide a Bilingual Deaf Education where BSL and English are used. Experience working with children with a range of additional needs will be an advantage.
Our Primary site is currently located in Westbury on Trym but we are being co-located to a new site at Upper Horfield Primary in April 23. Applicants must be able to work at this location when the school has moved.

• Able to work effectively as part of a team

• Punctual, reliable and committed
• Able to work flexibly and use own initiative
• Friendly, approachable and can work in a calm manner at all times
• Able to provide individual and/or group support
• Able to communicate effectively with children who use either BSL or oral English
• Willing to undertake relevant training to gain necessary qualifications as required
