Buddy needed to collect the eldest son from school on Mondays and Fridays and take him for the evening to give him the opportunity to develop his independent skills and support him. The buddy needs to be sporty as the boy needs to be encouraged to engage in activities that have an exercise element to them such as trampoline parks or swimming. On occasions, the buddy may be required to work with the younger boy.
Saturdays 11.00am - 7.00pm
Sundays 11.00am - 7.00pm
Shared care of both boys with mum depending on activities planned for the day. Ideally, this would be the same buddy but it could be a job share. Buddy needs to be enthusiastic, motivated and like to be active and take the boy/s out and about. A buddy with experience of working with children with SEN would be prefered. The buddy will be required to manage any difficult behaviour, therefore they will need to have strong behavioural management skills, and be calm, warm and reliable.
