What skills and experience we're looking for

We seek enthusiastic, positive people who work well with children, staff and parents, and can remain calm when there is lots going on!

You will work as part of a team to run Belleville Primary School’s new ‘wraparound’ provision (breakfast club and after school club) which will start running in September 2024.

This will involve supporting children to participate in engaging and enriching activities, and making sure they follow relevant policies and procedures to ensure their safety and wellbeing.

You will have

  • experience of working with children of primary school age
  • an understanding of good quality childcare
  • an understanding of safeguarding and child protection duties
  • the ability to engage children in fun and developmental activities
  • empathy, sensitivity and great communication skills
  • high expectations of yourself and others.

This is a brand new provision, and an exciting development for the school.

The role will involve:

  • Providing care for the children attending the programme, supervising them during activities and when eating, and ensuring they feel safe and looked after at all times.
  • Encouraging positive behaviour (“Making the Right Choices”), independence and self-esteem.
  • Making sure equipment is set up, used, maintained and put away safely.
  • Ensuring the safe transfer of children to class (after breakfast club) or collection (after school).

What the school offers its staff

Belleville is an ambitious, vibrant and supportive place to work.

Ofsted (March 2022) say:

  • Pupils thrive at Belleville. Pupils speak with enthusiasm about the rich curriculum they learn. Pupils behave very well and engage positively with their learning
  • Staff are proud to work at Belleville. They receive extensive professional development and are appreciative of this. They feel their workload is well managed by leaders who welcome their input on how the school operates.

We are a very successful, popular, outstanding school with a focus on positive learning behaviour and high expectations for all children. We have two school sites (Belleville Webbs and Belleville Meteor), a fantastic staff team and a supportive parent/carer community. We are in a vibrant area of south London with excellent transport links. Our proximity to Clapham Junction gives us easy access to central London and out across the south of England.

We have strong systems in place to help children achieve, so learning behaviour is excellent here. We provide amazing enrichment opportunities including visits, trips and clubs. We have a committed staff team, supportive parents and carers, and most importantly, truly incredible children!

Belleville is part of Quality First Education (Q1E), a successful Multi-Academy Trust with four primary schools on five sites across south London. This is an exciting time for us and we want the best people to join us. We would love to hear from you.

At Q1E, we believe that “the quality of an education system cannot exceed the quality of its teachers” (McKinsey 2007). The recruitment, retention and development of high quality teachers is our highest priority.

Staff wellbeing is very important to us. We provide clear structures, excellent resources and outstanding professional development for our staff. All teachers new to the Trust receive pre-induction training before starting in post. We are an outward facing trust and believe in learning from the best schools and systems - you will have lots of opportunity to watch outstanding practice and get involved in wider projects across our dynamic Trust as well as be supported to progress in your teaching career. There are opportunities for new teachers to take on leadership responsibilities for the right candidate.

We offer a high quality, well-resourced and carefully structured curriculum to support teacher wellbeing. High quality specialist teachers are employed to teach PE, art, computing, music and French. We strive to meet the needs of all our children – doing ‘Whatever It Takes’ to help children fulfil their potential.
