What skills and experience we're looking for

We have a vacancy for a Learning Support Assistant to work with a pupil in our Year 6 class who requires extra support to be able to flourish in school. The post holder will predominantly support this pupil, who has been awarded Top up Funding to support their needs. The role is for 12 hours a week, ideally Mondays and Tuesdays (term time only), from 8:40 – 3:10, however, we would be prepared to consider some level of flexibility on the days, for the right candidate. We would welcome anyone particularly interested in supporting a child to access the curriculum through play, including learning outside. We are looking for a team member who is enthusiastic, committed to inspiring a love for learning and has high expectations of themselves and pupils. Our motto, ‘With kind hearts and determined minds, we inspire each other to be the best we can be’ permeates all aspects of our school and we would expect the successful candidate to bring this commitment to their role in school.

The position will require the post holder to contribute, under the guidance of the year 6 teachers, to the planning, monitoring and assessment of the pupils. In addition to this, the successful applicant will need to adapt and amend learning opportunities and approaches to meet the needs of the pupils, based on the teacher’s planning and guidance. Being able to use initiative and be flexible and creative to meet the evolving needs of the pupils and to promote their independent learning, will be essential.

We are looking for applicants with experience working with children in a primary setting, who are conscientious, well-organised, dedicated and have good interpersonal skills. The ability to work effectively in a small team is essential. Experience of working with children with additional needs is desirable.

Our school is set in a beautiful rural location within North Somerset. We have a modern, well resourced building with seven classes. Outside we have attractive grounds and play areas.

At our recent OfSTED Inspection, May 2017, inspectors judged our school to be good. In the inspection report they highlight that ...

"Pupils speak positively of the education they receive. Pupils look out for one another. Pupils behave well in lessons. As a result of your schoolwide ‘learning to learn’ initiative pupils are gaining greater resilience to tackle the challenges set for them with independence and determination to do their best."
Our good SIAS inspection (Inspection of Church Schools) in March 2018 said ....

‘Churchill is a popular church school which enjoys the support of its parents and is held in very high regard within the local community in which it is totally involved’.

We are a busy, friendly learning community, with lots going on and the attainment of our pupils is above national expectations.

Our Christian foundation is very important in the life of our school and we have strong links with the local churches. Christian values are evident in all aspects of school life and children recognise the importance of living by these values. Parents say that they highly value all that our school offers academically, socially and spiritually.

When visitors come to our school they comment on the obvious enjoyment and enthusiasm that they see in children and staff... it’s a stimulating and happy place in which to live, work and grow!
