At Seal we feel we matter and are valued. Together we achieve and succeed.

We believe that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for all. We have developed an exciting, new and irresistible curriculum which promotes independence through purposeful learning experiences.

The post offered is a full time,  temporary contract, initially for one year. Hours of work will be 8:30am to 3:30pm. The position is paid at KR4.

  • Using visual supports to help them better understand their routine
  • simplifying communication and allow time for them to process information
  • using social stories to develop greater social understanding
  • consider the school environment and think about how you can make it more comfortable.
  • keep a behaviour diary/ABC chart
  • use a stress scale, the incredible five-point scale to turn emotions into more concrete concepts. 
  • establish good communication with parents/carers.

In return, we offer a commitment to your professional development and a supportive and friendly team that work together towards the bright future of our amazing school.

Seal CE Primary are committed to the protection and safeguarding of children.
