What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint a reliable and enthusiastic School Meals Supervisory Assistant (SMSA), who will supervise our children over their lunchbreaks and play time. This will involve supervising pupils in the dinner hall, as well as other indoor and outdoor areas including supervising pupils’ behaviour and leading playground games.

The successful applicant will enjoy working with children, and will use their initiative and creativity to promote imaginative games and use of playground equipment, modelling and encouraging ways of playing that will motivate pupils to develop their own play skills and games challenges. You will demonstrate consistently high expectations of behaviour, and will work closely with a team of colleagues to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our children.

The role is based at Waverley Junior Academy but may, on occasion, involve working at other academies within the trust.

What the school offers its staff

Part of the success of WJA is the excellent care and guidance our pupils receive. We not only have high expectations in terms of learning, but also with learning behaviours. Our academy is calm and well-ordered and we ensure the climate for learning is purposeful and focused. Pupils know, and adhere to, our high behaviour expectations and they feel safe and secure in the knowledge that these systems are in place and are used effectively. Don’t take my word for this, ask the children!

WJA has a team of hugely talented and committed staff who make sure that our curriculum, guidance, care and support meets the different needs of every child. We pride ourselves on having high expectations and all staff actively embrace their role within the academy to ensure that all children reach their full potential.
