Starfyn Education have recently begun working with an Alternative Provision that covers Kingston, New Malden and Surbiton. The Provision supports primary aged pupils that have been excluded from school or that are awaiting a placement in a Special Needs setting.

In this role, you will be working on a one to one basis, or in small groups with pupils that have SEMH and ASD needs. This maybe in Education settings or other venues - such as youth clubs, libraries or at the home of the pupil.
