I CAN Centre with Meath School, Ottershaw, Surrey

I CAN’s Meath School is a consistently outstanding special school committed to the highest quality integrated education, therapy and care. Meath is a non-maintained day and residential school for pupils aged between 4 – 11 years, who have severe and complex speech, language and communication difficulties together with other learning and/or behavioural difficulties.

This is a role that requires the ability to communicate effectively with children and families as well as your colleagues. You will already have experience of working with primary pupils in a school setting, with experience of SEN.  You’ll also need basic literacy, numeracy and ICT skills. Above all your flexible, positive attitude will shine through as will your desire to develop our outstanding school.
