Cedars School is part of Cedars Academy Trust, we educate children with complex needs from EYFS to Year 9. We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, caring and reliable Teaching Assistant to begin as soon as possible.

Our teams provide innovative and inclusive programmes where key skills are embedded within a range of practical and sensory approaches in the classroom, the outdoor environment and in our therapeutic spaces.
