What skills and experience we're looking for

To work under the guidance of the EYFS Lead, teaching/senior staff and within an agreed system of supervision, to implement agreed work programmes with individuals/groups, in or out of the classroom. This could include those requiring detailed and specialist knowledge in particular areas and will involve working alongside teachers in the whole planning cycle and the management/preparation of resources. The primary focus will be to maintain good order and to keep pupils on task.
