About the role

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and dedicated Learning Support Assistant to work for 28.75 hours per week from September 2021 during term time only at our small, friendly village school.

The hours for this role would be Monday to Friday 8:45am – 3.00pm and this job is initially being offered on a one-year temporary contract.

We can offer:

  • a very supportive team who work closely together
  • relevant training where appropriate
  • fabulous, well-behaved children
  • a caring school, where our practices are based on our Christian values of Courage, Appreciation, Respect, Peace, Responsibility and Love

We encourage visits to see our wonderful school but do request that when visiting, a face covering is worn at all times. 

At Bayford CofE Primary School, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children and staff. The successful applicant will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS check and supply suitable references. Applications will only be accepted using the official HCC application form.
