Occupational Therapist for Gesher Primary School
Gesher is a unique Jewish Independent SEN Primary School that opened its doors in
September 2017. Our cohort of children present with a range of Special Educational
Needs, including language, communication and social pragmatic difficulties, and those
associated with ADHD and specific learning difficulties. We also specialise in Autism
Spectrum Challenges (ASC).
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced therapist who feels that they would
fit into Gesher’s ethos and philosophy to join our team. We are a therapy based school
that believes readiness to learn is necessary to support children’s full progress and
potential. Gesher believes in a team approach and expects therapists to work based on
a child’s needs, including class based, individual and small group sessions as necessary.
The team currently consists of a Speech and Language Therapist, Occupational Therapist,
Dramatherapist, and Educational Psychologist working alongside the teaching staff. We
work towards tailoring individual programmes while also expecting therapists to support
families and staff to ensure consistency and multi-professional involvement.
We are looking to employ an experienced therapist to work term time. Although the
applicant does not need to be Jewish, it would be expected that they respect the ethos
and values of the school.
We offer the opportunity to be part of one of the first therapy based schools of its kind,
with input from recognised professionals in the field of SEN, such as Professor Simon Baron
Cohen. You will be part of a welcoming and supportive team with access to Gesher’s
staff well-being package. But most importantly, to help develop a model to support
children with Special Educational Needs to succeed!
Completed applications should be sent to [email protected]. (Applications close 05/07/2019)
