About the role

We are looking to appoint an experienced Teaching Assistant to join our team as soon as possible, to support children in the classroom.  This is a term time only post for 32.5 hours per week (8.30-3.30) on a fixed term contract in the first instance, however, it does have the potential to become permanent.  We would request that previous appliants do not re-apply.

You will work with the teacher to support teaching and learning, providing general and specific assistance to pupils and staff under the direction, guidance and direct supervision of the classroom teacher.

The ideal candidate will be an experienced Teaching Assistant with good literacy and numeracy skills who is enthusiastic, adaptable, has initiative and also has the ability to work as part of a team.

In return, we can offer a friendly, busy environment with relevant training to support your professional development.

In addition to their other roles and responsibilities, Teaching Assistants are also required to provide lunchtime cover, either in the dining room or outside on the playground.
