Higher Level Teaching Assistant job summary

Are you someone who can #makeadifferenceto the children in our school?

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and supportive HLTA to join our friendly and committed staff team. This would be for 28 hours 45 minutes per week, working Monday to Friday 8.45am to 3pm with an unpaid 30 minute break for lunch.

On behalf of the children, staff and governors at St Andrew’s, thank you for showing an interest in the post of Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) at our school. I hope that you find all the information you require about our school on our website at www.standrewswey.dsat.org.uk, we also welcome visits to our school too.

St Andrew’s Primary School is a one and a half form entry primary school, with room to grow.   The school received a good grading by Ofsted in January 2020 which was a testament to the improvements the school had made.  However, we are a school which is constantly seeking to improve and wish to ensure that it continues to make a difference to pupils’ lives. The school is developing a vibrant curriculum so that children leave school with a passion for learning, already having a secure and wide knowledge base and skills which will equip them for the next phase of their education, as well as life.  

We are proud of our church school ethos and our partnership with the local churches. Our Christian vision has driven much of our work. We value our partnership with our local community and parents and a look on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/standrewswey/ will show how important this is to the school.

We genuinely value the positive contribution of every member of our team, provide extensive continuing professional development and are keen to welcome other like-minded staff. We are part of the Diocese of Salisbury Academy Trust and work collaboratively to achieve the best outcomes for all children in the Trust.

We are looking for someone who: 

·        Is passionate about helping our children learn and achieve

·        Has a supportive and nurturing approach towards children

·        Has knowledge and experience of working with children across the primary age range including children with SEND

·        Understands that positive relationships are key to successful working with children

·        Has excellent communication skills (written and oral) and the ability to keep accurate records

·        Is creative and can embrace change

·        Has energy, enthusiasm and resilience

·        Is able to show reflectiveness and persistence when dealing with complexity

·        Is an excellent team player; valuing the contribution of others, receptive to feedback, confident to use own initiative and communicating with colleagues regularly

·        Places safeguarding at the heart of the school

Genuinely wants to be part of our future  

We can offer:

·        Young people who love their school and are excited by learning

·        A team of dedicated staff who believe in keeping the children at the heart of everything they do

·        A collaborative desire to be the very best we can be

·        Opportunities for professional development

·        A positive, caring school ethos firmly rooted in our Christian values

·        A strong and supportive parent body

·        Links to a network of schools and CPL through our supportive Academy Trust
