Giving pupils skills, they can use to gain independence, aiming to ensure they do not enter the criminal justice system.

This LSA role in a specialist SEMH and Autistic Provision is all about positive engagement, deploying restorative practices and showing a way of being as well as giving some of your professional self to the students.

Restorative Practice, pragmatism and positive reinforcement will be key skills in this LSA role. The role specialises in working with students who have Social, Emotional and Mental Health issues and Wellness concerns. Each student will have very different objectives in and out of school, some will live in supported living when they leave, and some will go to college.

The LSA role will give you experience in safeguarding and assessment of what rehabilitation students require to be empowered back into mainstream education.
