Priory Education and Children’s Services is a leading company in the UK offering independent behavioural care for commissioners across the UK. With over 100 high quality schools, colleges and homes we focus on making a real and lasting difference for everyone we support.

Home Farm School is a specialist school providing education for boys and girls aged 9 to 18 who have complex emotional, social and behavioural needs but who also may have a range of associated complex needs such as attachment disorders and other conditions within the Autistic or Aspergers spectrum which invariably have a negative impact on their learning and progression. Our learners are usually residents of Home Farm School’s on site children’s homes or can be day pupils from the surrounding areas.

Home Farm School provides a wholly integrated and highly effective provision providing 1:1 or small group education, individualised therapy, and a carefully structured social development programme. A stable, calm and caring environment is provided, which combined with high staff to pupil ratios ensures that every pupil at Home Farm School has the opportunity to develop their ability, share new experiences and reach their full potential in a secure and safe environment.

We require a Learning Support Assistant to join our expanding school.

The successful candidate will be part of a dedicated and lively team that focuses strongly on the core areas of education, independence and inclusion.

You will be provided with an extended and ongoing package of induction and training. We believe that staff training and professional development, together with the other staff support systems in place, are essential in our specialised field and are at the core of the success of the school.

As part of the Priory Group, you will enjoy a generous range of benefits, competitive rewards, first-class facilities, ongoing professional development and the career prospects you would expect from the UK’s leading provider of specialist education and care.
