Castle Primary School is a vibrant and growing school, situated in Keynsham, between Bath & Bristol. We are seeking an energetic and experienced TA / HLTA to join our committed team who understands the importance of going ‘over and above’. Our children thrive with adults who are friendly, firm and fair, so we are seeking a calm, consistent and committed person.

The Teaching Assistant hours will involve supporting learning across KS1 or KS2 classes under the direction of teachers. The HLTA hours will involve leading interventions with groups of children from all attainment groups.

In addition to previous experience in KS1 or KS2, training in phonics and / or an evidence-based intervention would be an advantage.

This is an opportunity to make a real difference to children’s lives and their futures. It is a chance to join a supportive team, on an improvement journey to ensure all our children reach their potential.

We can offer you:
• Children who will make you smile everyday
• Consideration of your ‘well-being’ and access to support (in the eventuality any is required)
• Opportunities to grow as a professional and access to regular high-quality CPD
• The support of an experienced and dedicated team of professionals
• The support of a Trust, who like us, values its employees and respects our school’s individuality
• Pension contributions
• Access to the Cycle to Work Scheme

We would encourage visits to our school so you can see for yourself all we can offer.
