Job summary

Dear Applicant,

Thank you for considering the position of HLTA at Ashmount Primary School. We are looking for two HLTA’s who have potential or experience who will be supporting children within a specific year group but also have wider responsibilities across the school including classroom cover in the absence of the classroom teacher.
We are proud of the welcoming, inclusive and diverse nature of our school community and we are looking for someone who shares our holistic, caring and creative school ethos and believes that everyone counts at Ashmount! We have worked hard over the last three years on our LBGTQ+ and Black History curriculum and would welcome new colleagues to join us on embedding our learning here.
You will be a key part of our dedicated and enthusiastic team of teachers, teaching assistants and support staff and will work closely with one of our Assistant Headteachers in ensuring the children make great progress in school.
In 2019 OFSTED judged Ashmount to be Good but were so impressed that they intend to come back to see if we are Outstanding! We are looking for a teacher who can continue to help us provide exceptional learning with children who have key needs. We want to provide an excellent standard of education for all our children, with each child challenged to make exceptional progress across the curriculum and equipped to realise their full potential in life. We value the breadth and creativity of our educational offer at Ashmount. We are proud to offer a range of after-school clubs and activities, recognising that a variety of creative arts and sports extends and diversifies the opportunities for individuals to excel.
Ashmount is housed in a new, carbon-neutral building, which has won national architectural awards. We are in a very special location at the edge of the Parkland Walk nature reserve on the Islington and Crouch End borders where there are plenty of opportunities for the children to learn outdoors in an environment that changes seasonally; they also encounter the local wildlife, including bats and woodpeckers.

Ashmount is a learning organisation, which is proudly committed to the development of its entire staff. This role is a fantastic opportunity to continue to learn professionally and to contribute to the growth and development of our school. We currently judge all our teaching and learning to be at least good, with much of it outstanding. We are, therefore, looking for someone who has the capacity to support and deliver excellent learning to one of our delightful classes.
Please do come and visit the school to find out more about what makes Ashmount special. We look forward to welcoming you and would welcome an HLTA from underrepresented groups.
