About the role

Are you passionate about seeing the small steps that every child can make, no matter what their individual need? Do you have high expectations that all children can achieve their full potential? Are you a positive, enthusiastic person with a good sense of humour who would like to work with a happy, supportive and forward thinking team? If you have answered yes, then this could be the perfect role for you so make an appointment and come and see us.

Woodside is a good school with a village feel, committed to ensuring that all children are included. Our children are happy, well behaved individuals with a passion for learning. Their politeness and developing growth mind sets inspire us all everyday. We have an engaging curriculum where children’s curiosity is encouraged.

We are looking for an exceptional TA with experience of working with children with a range of needs.
