About the role

The Governors of St Thomas of Canterbury School are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, energetic and caring Learning Support Assistant (LSA) to support a child 1:1 for five mornings a week (16.25 hours) within our mixed Year 1 and 2 class. This is a Fixed Term post until 23rd July 2019, paid at H1 (1) £16,755 pro rata (£8.99 per hour).

Ideally the candidate may also be interested in taking up an additional Midday Supervisory Assistant (MSA) post for three lunch-times per week (3.75 hours), which is paid at HA (2) £16,495 pro rata (£8.86 per hour).  You need to be willing to work closely with the class teacher and support staff to adapt planning to suit the specific needs of the child. A calm, patient manner is essential, and experience of working with children with behaviour needs or SEND would be a distinct advantage.  The successful candidate will be joining a friendly, supportive team who have high expectations of children's learning.


St Thomas of Canterbury is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children; safer recruitment procedures are in place.
