About the role

Are you a caring and enthusiastic person who enjoys learning and supporting inquisitive children?

We are looking to appoint a teaching assistant to work with our dedicated, kind and caring team.

The successful candidate will be able to challenge children's thinking and support them to develop further in whole class, small group and 1 to 1 situations. Experience and an interest in SEND would be an advantage.

The post is initially for lower key stage 2 but depending on the needs of the children in the school and individual adults strengths across the school, all staff may be required to work across the primary age range.

Mount Pleasant Lane is proud to be part of the Spiral Partnership Academy Trust which actively promotes a culture of high rewards, high standards and high expectations for all. They offer generous terms and conditions of employment to our support staff, including flexible leave options and excellent CPD opportunities.

Mount Pleasant Lane is a happy and ambitious school with a dedicated, supportive and hardworking team who all strive to reach the best outcomes for our children. Our recent Ofsted inspection (October 2022) states: "we are a kind and caring place where children want to do their best".

The successful candidate will be responsible for supporting children across the curriculum and will need to have GCSEs in English, maths and science at grade C / 5 or above.

You will work 30 hours per week, term time (38 weeks) plus five inset days and a minimum of two days for in school tasks.
