Part Time Teaching Assistant (Wed-Fri) job summary

Castle Primary School is a vibrant and growing school, situated in Keynsham, between Bath & Bristol.

We are seeking an energetic and flexible TA to join our committed team.

The role will support children and learning across the Y2-Y4 age range, under the direction of teachers.

We are flexible about the skills and experience required. It is suitable for someone with school experience and TA training (Grade 4) or other employment with primary-aged children, OR someone with the required qualifications seeking a new challenge (Grade 3) - as training and support will be. However, previous experience in KS1 or KS2, and school-based training 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 committed to ensure all our children reach their potential.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and flexible team player, who understands the importance of going ‘over and above’. Our children thrive with adults who are friendly, firm and fair, and we are seeking a calm, consistent and committed person.

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
  • A pending pay award
  • Pension contributions
  • Access to the Cycle to Work Scheme

This position will include 30 minutes play ‘duty’ during lunchtime.

We warmly encourage visits to our school so you can see for yourself all that we can offer. Please contact the school office to arrange a convenient time.
