Heathermount is a non-maintained specialist school in Ascot owned by the Disabilities Trust. The school provides education for children and young people aged between 4-19 years who have a diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Condition and associated disorders. The school has recently received a “Good” Ofsted inspection (Feb 2019) and has its Autism Accreditation mark. We are a forward looking and ambitious school.

We are looking to appoint a Speech and Language Therapist who is enthusiastic, keen to learn, innovative and would fit in well with an already well-established Speech and Language team.

Our team of education and therapy staff help to provide a high-quality educational experience for our young people and a professional and extensive CPD programme for all staff. 

The SALT should have a HCPC recognised speech and language degree. The role includes assessment, diagnosis, and management of children with complex speech, language, and communication needs. It also includes working closely with families, peers, and professionals across the education setting.

Heathermount is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of its students. All positions are subject to receipt of a satisfactory Enhanced DBS check, Barred List check and references.
