The job entails working 4 hours per day, 2 in the AM and 2 in the PM. This is a temporary position as an additional bus was added on due to Covid-19 by Bus Eireann.
You will be in close contact and link in with the school principal, the bus driver and the parents of the children on the bus on a daily basis.
You will be responsible for ensuring the children are safely in their seats and wearing seatbelts on the jouney to and from school.
You will also be in a position to pass on and share information from home to school and from school to home. This is referred to as a handover.
Experience working with children with special needs is imperative and understanding a moderate intellectual disability is also important. Our students also may have autism or Down Syndrome and present with challenging behaviour at times.
Please be sure to include any continuous professional development such as First Aid, Manual Handling, etc.
