If you are calm, patient, resourceful and enjoy working with children you might like to consider working as a Lunchtime Playleader at Prince of Wales Primary.

The aim of the role is to promote social interaction, positive behaviour and respect, through play at lunchtimes, both indoors and outdoors, and to assist in the lunch halls to ensure children have a positive dining experience. You will be helping children with lunchtime play activities, including setting up and clearing away equipment at the end of break. You will also work in the dining halls to ensure children eat their meals and remain calm while they are in the dining area.

What the school offers its staff
