We are looking to appoint a Nurture Room Practitioner to work alongside and under the guidance of our Nurture Room Leader and SENDCo, to provide support for a group of children with a range of learning needs. This fixed term post will take effect from September 2020 and initially be until July 2021.
We are looking for a dynamic individual who is passionate about making a difference and improving outcomes for children. Our Nurture Room Practitioner will work with pupils from across the school who have specific barriers to their learning including social and emotional challenges, cognition and learning, physical and communication.
Our school is a vibrant, culturally and socially diverse community school for 2 – 11 year old pupils, situated in the Royal Borough of Kingston-Upon-Thames and judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted in December 2018. We offer happy and enthusiastic children who love learning, good parental support and a strong staff team who enjoy working together. All staff receive a high level of continuing professional development.
This exciting and rewarding role requires someone who is flexible, adaptable, a ‘team player’ and who is able to show initiative. The Nurture Room Practitioner will be required to attend weekly staff training sessions and planning meetings after school. Experience of working with pupils with additional needs and/or a relevant qualification is desirable.
If you would like to discuss this role, please email Kings Oak Primary so that we can arrange for a member of our team to call you back.
