Wolvercote Primary School is looking for an excellent Teaching Assistant with vision and a passion for bringing out the best in all children.
This is a key role within Wolvercote Primary School and involves working closely with the teachers and inclusion coordinator. It will involve supporting teaching and learning across the school particularly with children with special educational needs.
We are looking for someone with the following qualities:
• Keen to learn
We value reflective practice and have a desire to be ‘even better’. We provide a range of opportunities for continuous development.
• A resilient ‘can-do’ attitude
We adopt a problem-solving approach with teamwork and collaboration. Staff wellbeing is important to us and we regularly review workload.
• Kind and caring
We implement restorative practice in the school and aim to understand each child’s needs.
• Commitment to inclusivity and excellence
We have high standards and help children to be the best that they can be academically, behaviourally, emotionally and in all areas of the curriculum.
Staff seek to be positive role-models. We believe that relationships are at the heart of everything we do.
Visitors comment on the warm atmosphere in the school. Our children are friendly, enthusiastic and welcoming. They strive to do their best and enjoy attending school. We offer candidates the opportunity to join our supportive and motivated team of staff and governors with excellent opportunities for professional development.
Our school is part of the River Learning Trust. Our collective vision is to be a Trust where pupils and staff thrive in schools which demonstrate commitment to excellence, everyone learning, respectful relationships.
Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At RLT we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone. Schools in RLT are united by a common belief in the benefits of working together, and by our commitment to shared principles.
OUR VISION is for our schools and SCITT to improve rapidly, continuously and sustainably: to be better faster together.
OUR ‘WHY?’ is that children and young people ‘only get one go’ in school and therefore as part of RLT we aim to ensure the best possible ‘go’ for our pupils.
OUR ‘HOW?’ is through the highest support and challenge for our schools and each other, underpinned by our principles.
Our employees benefit from a wide variety of support including extensive continuing professional learning and development opportunities, wellbeing and staff networks and access to Defined Benefit Pension Schemes (TPS and LGPS) for all staff.
