We are actively recruiting for an Education Support Worker to work with Key Stage 3 and 4 pupils that have Social, Emotional and Mental Health Issues. The successful candidate will be responsible for contributing to the welfare and safety of pupils whilst in school which will be made possible by being a good communicator, showing empathy and working with other staff members as a team.
