Gladstone Primary Academy
Gladstone Primary Academy is a multicultural primary school near the centre of Peterborough. The school is situated across two sites a few minutes’ walk apart, one on Gladstone Street (reception and KS1) and the other on Bourges Boulevard (KS2). Having two sites gives Gladstone Primary Academy excellent facilities, including a 4G pitch, learning centre, halls and computer rooms.
Gladstone Primary Academy is looking to recruit a School Streets Assistant to join their passionate and enthusiastic team on a part time fixed term contract until 31st August 2024.
As a School Streets Assistant at Gladstone Primary, your primary goal is to contribute to creating a safe and pleasant environment during the start and end of the school day.

You will work closely with members of the academy’s senior leadership team and site officer to manage the school safety zone.
