Further details about the role

Tinsley Meadows Primary Academy are seeking to appoint a highly motivated teaching assistant who can support a high quality, safe learning experience underpinned by high expectations for our children. In the first instance the successful candidate will be supporting some of our pupils with complex SEND needs but may be deployed across the school.

Tinsley Meadows Primary Academy is part of Five Rivers Multi Academy Trust which has outcomes for children at the forefront of its vision. We have a vast amount of experience in raising attainment which, in turn, helps us to raise children’s aspirations for a happy, safe and positive future.

As well as this, we are passionate about being an employer of choice. Five Rivers Multi Academy Trust is committed to investing heavily in its staff. Our workforce is the jewel in our crown and the reason our children succeed. Our Workforce Charter has been carefully crafted in consultation with unions to ensure staff are equipped with both the professional development and personal support needed to excel in their role and develop their career. We are committed to improving well-being through the reduction of workload, well-being initiatives and creating a professional development offer that focuses much more on investment and support as opposed to the monitoring and management of performance.

By applying for this position you will be applying to be part of a forward thinking, caring trust that puts children and staff at the centre of all decisions.
