Mill Water School is an all-age special school for pupils with severe and complex learning difficulties, including Autism, in a purpose built school in the grounds of Bicton College. Our beautiful, rural surroundings provide unrivalled opportunities for outdoor learning.

From EYFS through to Post 16, our pupils access a bespoke learning and communication package to challenge their educational progress, working in partnership with multi-agency professionals and families.

We now have exciting opportunities for Grade B and Grade C TAs to join our class teams. Ideally, you will have experience of working with pupils with SEND, but the right personal qualities can be as important. Experience of supporting children's learning and recording holistic achievements is desirable.

We are seeking enthusiastic and committed individuals to join our school. You will need to be tolerant, understanding, show care and concern whilst being fair and consistent. You must be resilient and committed to improving outcomes for pupils and a good sense of humour is essential.

An ability to work positively within a team of classroom assistants is essential in order to maximise pupil learning and contribute to an inspiring learning environment.

We are a member of the only special school teaching alliance in Devon, so we are able to provide regular training to support your continued professional development, in partnership with Marjon University.
