Having worked in a school for children with a range of SEN, I understand the time and patience needed and how valuable extra support is. Every child is different and learns in a different way. I keep lessons short and concise but regular.
I have recently moved to Hythe from Brighton after living there for six years. I completed my Fine art degree in Brighton gaining a 2:1 and subsequently went onto complete a Foundation course in Art Therapy.
Up until recently I was working in a Primary school for children with Special Needs. I loved the busy full-on role but sadly there was no way to move up career-wise. I used Makaton and PECs on a daily basis and was also Meds trained and would administer meds and feeds via PEG daily. I’ve worked with children who have a range of mild and more severe learning, developmental, physical and behavioural needs. The class I was working in until recently consisted of children with MLD and PMLD needs, including epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy, ASD, Global Learning Delay and rare diseases.
Prior to working at Herons Dale I worked as a Health Care Assistant at Seaway Nursing Home. Whilst it was sometimes challenging this was great experience for my current position as it taught me a lot of transferable skills, for example people skills, working closely with individuals and the importance of understanding and maintaining a vulnerable persons safety, dignity, liberty and privacy. During this time I completed my First Aid training, Safeguarding training, Manual Handling Training and Fire Safety Training. The Safeguarding Training I received was training about a wide range of vulnerable people and included children.
I also volunteered weekly in a year seven class at Oak Grove College for six months working as a Teaching Assistant in a PMLD class whilst studying for my degree. My other experience includes completing my year ten work experience in a mainstream year two class, where I worked as a teaching assistant and would work one-on-one during lessons with children whose English was their second language

Up until recently I worked as a full-time Teaching Assistant at a Special Needs Primary School. I have worked in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 classes.

While working here I completed my Team Teach, Manual Handling and Medicine training. I also worked with pupils weekly supervising an Art Therapy session. I decided to move back to Kent, so sadly had to leave my role.
