  1. My name is Lisa justice, I have an autistic son that goes to shepherds Down School and would love a career in a special needs school environment.

  2. I am a six form student at Peter Symonds College and would like some work experience as my intention is to train to become a teacher. I have a particular interest in working with special needs children. I have already completed some work experience at Harestock school supporting children with autism and they would be prepared to give me a good reference. Due to college commitments I can only work a maximum of 10 hours per week. Would you consider me for a role within your school?
