Sennies are looking for 2 live in Sennies to care for and temporarily homeschool wonderful 13 year old twins in Barnes.

A level of flexibility is vital when applying for this role. Due to COVID-19, B13 has been kept out of school as he is a high risk individual. The family would love for him to resume his usual schooling as soon as possible, however they are having to monitor the pandemic and make decisions accordingly, this means that the selected Sennie would then need to be available to work full days, delivering homeschooling and care. Salary will be adjusted in accordance with this. 

About B13:

B13 is a charming, chatty boy, who has a real passion for history. He can talk all day and night to you about it so we would love to find a Sennie who equally loves history where possible! 

He is a keen chess player, gamer (xbox) and loves to read his favourites which include classics like Harry Potter and Lord of the rings. 

B13  has Cerebral Palsy which affects both his arms and legs.He is a wheelchair user but also has use of a walker.

B13 has an Education, Health and Care Plan in school and a full time Learning Support Assistant. This enables him to access the curriculum. In school and at home the work is generally scribed, however, B13 is learning to use an ‘eye gaze’ device which will allow him to become more independent in his learning and he has a cochlear implant. B13 still has access to his weekly speech and language therapy and physiotherapy via zoom which you will be there to assist with. 

About G13:

G13 is a kind, gentle young lady who is much quieter than her twin brother and she can take a little longer to warm up to new people. It is really important that she is included in activities and conversations so she doesn't feel left out and overshadowed by her twin brother.

G13 loves music, especially her guitar, creative play and fashion! 

This role includes: Supporting both children with school learning on a daily basis (with guidance from their school where work is provided online ), engaging B13 in more physical activities to develop his strength (with guidance from his physiotherapist) and encouraging B13 to use his Walker and Tricycle where possible. 

About the family:

This is a busy household with a lot of emphasis on fun learning. In-house training will be provided for personal care duties. Whilst B13 is very chatty and full of personality,  they are trying to help him develop his social and conversational skills, encouraging him to understand how to take turns in conversation and how others are feeling. 

You will mostly be working alongside another Sennie, however on their days off you will be required to work 1:1 with B13. 

To summarise - This lovely family are looking for a proactive and passionate Sennie/Teacher/TA/Carer who can provide fantastic support for both children and work alongside another Super Sennie. 

The Sennie selected is required to live in and self isolate with the family 5 days per week. They will be able to visit one other safe household on their days off and agree to adhere to all government guidelines to keep everyone safe, as B13 is high risk. If the government enforces a second lockdown, the Sennie will be required to self isolate with the family and create a bubble for a minimum of 1 month in their home.

Ability to follow and support therapies and interventions determined by the family and professionals is a must, as well as a genuine interest in working with SEN children.

Due to the volume of applicants we will only be in touch with successful candidates. Please reach out to elinor@sennies.co.uk for more info
