We currently have vacancies for permanent, temporary/fixed term contracts across the school for highly motivated and enthusiastic individuals to join our well established team of Teaching Assistants. Frederick Holmes School is an all age special school for children and young people with severe physical disabilities. Many of our pupils also experience learning and/or communication difficulties and some have profound and complex medical needs. The pupils require a high degree of adult support to access the school curriculum and for everyday activities such as eating and drinking and personal care routines. The school works with a multidisciplinary team, including speech and language therapy, physiotherapy and occupational therapy. We also have a full time nursing team based at the school to support our pupils who have medical needs.
The pupils at Frederick Holmes follow the EYFS curriculum, the National Curriculum or the Frederick Holmes College Curriculum which is based on nationally recognised qualifications and accreditation schemes. Many of our pupils require a more sensory based curriculum. The school aims to ensure that all pupils have every opportunity to develop to their maximum potential and we endeavour to encourage autonomy and independence in all areas of the pupils' daily lives.
Experience with children with Special Needs is an advantage but is not essential as full training will be given.
