We are recruiting for Teaching Assistants to work within our Infant and Junior Schools, under the direction of the class teacher. The Teaching Assistants’ core purpose is to support the learning of children at all times and to ensure the work of the class teacher is fully supported. Duties will also include playground duties and the management of classroom organisation and resources. Teamwork, positivity and a ‘can-do approach’ are integral to this position. Also fundamental to the role are professionalism and the highest level of confidentiality. There are positions available in Early Years, KS1 and KS2, however please note our talented Teaching Assistants move classes and year groups when we review our staffing annually and so an ability to support children from Nursery to Year 6 is required.
