• the ability to work with parents, other colleagues and relevant professionals.

• understanding of and commitment to inclusive education and an ability to work effectively as part of a multi-agency team

Please refer to the job description and person specification for further details of this role. Applicants must evidence within their applications that they meet the person specification.
