SALT - Specialist Schools - Term Time Only


Salary: £31,365 - £37,890 FTE (pro rata'd to 41 weeks)



Compass Associates are excited to be working with an outstanding provider of specialist schools, to recruit a Speech & Language Therapist to work on a permanent, term time only basis.


You would spend the majority of your week at an Ofsted Outstanding, specialist therapeutic day school for children with autism spectrum disorders and SEMH needs plus challenging behaviours due to complex  backgrounds of bullying, discrimination, trauma, bereavement, depression and social difficulties. The remaining workday would be based at a smaller school, located nearby, which is for children aged 7-19yrs who have a diagnosis and EHCP for autism spectrum disorders. Class sizes are kept purposefully small and classrooms are designed with sensory needs in mind so have break out areas, fidget toys and weighted blankets.


Your role would involve carrying out assessments, delivering therapy sessions as well working closely with teaching staff and other therapists including, Psychologists, Counsellors, Art Therapists, Psychotherapists and an Occupational Therapist. The schools are moving towards a more integrated approach so most of your work will take place in the classrooms alongside teaching staff.
