We are looking for a passionate, motivated and dedicated Teaching Assistant to work in partnership with teaching and other educational support staff.

We are looking for somebody with commitment, energy and drive to join our team and work closely with staff to provide positive learning experiences for all our pupils.

You will need to:

  • Have a detailed understanding of the importance of positive behaviour management
  • Complement the professional work of teachers by taking responsibility for agreed learning activities under an agreed system of supervision.
  • Encourage and support a child with Special Educational Needs in line with their support plan and the academy’s targets and curriculum.
  • Be flexible and have experience across all primary ages.
  • Be able to support in the delivery of high quality learning experiences for all pupils
  • Seek to make learning exciting and a positive experience
  • Communicate well with parents, carers and members of staff, as well as pupils.
  • Demonstrate good communication skills both orally and written.
  • Be willing to contribute to school life outside of the classroom

We, therefore, offer you an opportunity to join us and play a pivotal role in joining a team that will make a real impact on the outcomes of our pupils. If you are passionate, resilient and have a relentless drive to make a real difference, we want to hear from you.
