A typical day at work begins with a quick meet and greet the taxi of a student. Taking student to change from the manual wheel chair to the electric chair that is used around school. During the school day various pieces of equipment are used these include stander, pacer and hoist. Straight to the first class of the day by 8.25am. There are five lessons within the school day finishing school at 2.30pm and getting the student to the taxi for 2.30pm. Friendly people teachers help you to fit within some classes. Behaviour policy hard to follow at first but generally a nice place to work.

Extremely stressful. Students are very poorly behaved. Amount of out of hours work is ridiculous, no support and training does not meet needs of individuals. When Ofsted are due, leadership from other academies are flown in so the true picture is never seen. High turnover of staff due to stress and anxiety. Student's views are taken above those of staff.
Pros
None
Cons
Poor leadership and poor student behaviour.

I had worked for a short time at Outwood Grange Academy and learned quite a lot during this period. All members of staff helped me to understand my duties and ensure that I competed my work properly and to the best of my standards.
