Thank you for expressing an interest in the vacancy at our school.   


We are looking for enthusiastic and friendly teaching assistants to work with children in our school including children with SEND.  Ideally you will have the skills and experience of supporting primary aged children and be a professional who is versatile, enthusiastic, resilient and able to provide a solution focused approach to securing the best possible outcomes for all children.   


We are a larger than average school with 315 pupils on roll and 50 members of staff and very low staff turnover, so it is especially exciting to have the opportunity to recruit two new members of staff to join the team.   


We pride ourselves on our happy children who love coming to school.  Our staff team take pride in building positive relationships with children and their parents/carers to support all children to achieve their learning goals and fulfil their potential.  One of the features of our SEND provision is the support for Hearing Impaired children and use of British Sign Language in many of our daily classroom routines.  Our school curriculum is rich, broad and balanced and is enhanced through lots of visits and visitors and a wide range of extracurricular activities.    


We can offer you a stimulating and rewarding work environment with supportive colleagues, a training and development package to help you move to the next stage in your career as well as fantastic children to work with. 


These posts would suit graduates looking to gain experience before undertaking PGCE. 


Hours of Work: Monday – Friday, term time only, 8:45am – 3:15pm including half an hour lunchtime duty.  We will consider requests to work part-time. 


This post is offered initially as a one year fixed term contract due to funding.
