Dove House is an outstanding school (Ofsted 2019) for children with moderate learning difficulties and autism. We converted to an academy in November 2011 and have enjoyed many benefits from the autonomy this brings. Dove House is also an accredited Teacher Training Provider (SCITT) but above all it is a school which makes a difference to all those who are connected with it.
We are looking to recruit a 1:1 Learning Support Assistant to offer 1:1 support to students where required. It would be an advantage if the successful candidate has emotional literacy and Autistic Spectrum Conditions experience however, previous experience of working with children with special needs is not required as full training will be given but an empathy with them is essential. Dove House has a strong tradition of developing its own staff.

COVID 19 information: under normal circumstances, we would warmly welcome visits to our school, however whilst we continue to follow Government guidance this is unfortunately not possible at this time. Interviews will also be carried out remotely via the zoom meeting facility and details regarding access will be provided if you are successfully shortlisted for interview. Should the situation change between now and the closing date for this position we will obviously review all arrangements. If you would therefore like further information about the school generally or the role specifically, please contact Debbie Andrews in the first instance who will then be able to arrange for the appropriate member of staff to contact you directly.
Dove House School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
