Maple Walk is a happy, successful, and vibrant independent primary school for girls and boys aged 4-11, in North West London. 

We are looking for a Learning and Personal Support Assistant to work on a one to one basis with a child with cerebral palsy who will be in Year 4 from September 2018. The purpose of the role is to support and assist with the child's physical needs so as to enable learning to take place.
