What skills and experience we're looking for

The Holt House and Carterknowle Schools Federation is looking for a senior teaching assistant to join our staff team from January 2024, to be based at Holt House Infant School.

You will need to have experience of working with children and supporting them effectively. You will be expected to be skilled in working with individuals, with small groups and in supporting the teacher with the whole class. You will need to have high expectations for what children can achieve both in their learning and in their independence, while being able to provide good pastoral support and care. As a senior TA you will assist class teachers with preparation and assessment and deliver catch up programmes. You will be called upon to supervise a class for short periods as ad hoc cover. Good numeracy and literacy skills are essential for this post.

Breaktime and lunchtime supervision is part of this role. The minimum hours of working are Monday-Friday: 8.30am – 3.45pm (with two daily breaks of 15 and 30 minutes).

We can offer you support and continuing professional development so that you can fulfil your role well. Holt House Infant School is a lovely school with wonderful children who are eager to learn. We are committed to meeting children’s individual learning needs, working in partnership with parents and carers.

Further information can be found on our website www.holthouse.sheffield.sch.uk.

Commitment to safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of children and young people; we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA) 1974. Shortlisted candidates will be asked to disclose any cautions or convictions prior to interview. The amendments to the ROA Exceptions Order 1975 (2013 & 2020) provide that certain convictions and cautions are 'protected' and are therefore not subject to disclosure to employers.
The successful candidate will complete an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check and a Children’s Barred List check.
