The Outdoors Group School is an Independent Special School that is based solely outside in a woodland setting for learners with SEMH and ASD needs. We believe in developing the whole learner, not just their academic ability. We use a project-based method, allowing the learner to be completely autonomous, whilst contributing to a well-rounded education based on skills for lifelong learning and personal development.
The school caters for KS2 and KS3 learners (ages 7-14) and aims to provide a space for learners to develop skill sets and a growth mindset that they have been unable to in previous settings. We are currently going through the process of applying to extend ou provision to include KS4. We work closely with learners’ support networks, both professional and familial and try to create a holistic and engaging place for learners to grow.
The Outdoors School opened in September 2019 and due to its successes, we are increasing learner numbers and adding extra sites and therefore looking for more people to join our team.
We are looking for 1:1 Learning Support Assistants who will work closely with the other members of their team, to deliver learner centred learning opportunities, ensuring they differentiate lesson plans and schemes of work to apply to the individual needs of their learners.
If you are interested in joining our motivated team to work in an innovative setting, in the outdoors, we look forward to receiving your application.
