Hours: 37.5 hours/32.5 hours - Term Time Only + Inset days

Times: 8.30 – 4.30/8.30 – 3.30

Start date: 1st September 2021

Rugby Free Primary School opened in September 2015 with three Reception classes in a newly refurbished state of the art building in Central Park. Each year our school increases by one year group thus providing additional opportunities for staff, movement within year groups etc. We are currently full in all year groups from Reception through to Year 5. Next year we have our first year 6 cohort and our school will be at full capacity with 420 pupils.

We welcome children of all abilities and from all backgrounds. We are non-selective, non-denominational and are free for all to attend. We provide a high quality local school with an exciting curriculum and extended enrichment opportunities for our children.

We are looking to extend our team of professionals who bring interest, ideas and enthusiasm to match that of the Trust, Governors and the current Staff. Currently, we are seeking both HLTAs and TAs to join our dedicated, friendly and caring school team.

We encourage candidates to state their individual interests in their application noting why they feel our school would be the right choice for them in their career. Ideally, you would have a HLTA/Teaching Assistant qualification and experience of working with children with additional needs or experience of working throughout the primary age range. Knowledge of children with communication and Social, Emotional and Mental health difficulties would be an advantage.

HLTAs may have a regular teaching commitment e.g. PPA cover and would be used for the cover of teacher sickness/absence and therefore need to have good behaviour and class management skills. Anyone applying for the HLTA position will need to feel comfortable working from Reception up to Year 6.

The successful candidates will be supported by a senior leadership team who have the highest ambitions for the school, its children and its staff. We will support the successful candidate in their professional development and progression will be fully supported and nurtured.

If you would like to discuss this role further or want to arrange a visit to our school, please contact the Finance & Admin Manager, Mrs Suzanna Phillimore on office@rugbyfreeprimary.co.uk

To apply, please download the job description, person specification and application forms.

Completed applications should be sent to office@rugbyfreeprimary.co.uk for the attention of Mrs Suzanna Phillimore. Both the Application form and Reference and Monitoring forms should be completed please.

Closing date for applications: Monday 14th June 12.00pm (please apply ASAP as we will shortlist as we receive applications and reserve the right to withdraw/close the advert early)

Interviews on: TBC

RFPS is committed to safeguarding children; successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check and will be required to disclose all relevant information for appropriate safeguarding checks.
