Teaching Assistant job summary

Are you eager to work within a vibrant and forward-looking centre for learning?

Are you looking to grow within an aspirational and supportive staff team?


If the above resonates with you, an exciting opportunity has arisen in Salisbury for you to be part of the successful team shaping the Trust’s vision for education at our school, St. Peter’s CE Primary Academy. 

Experienced TAs are encouraged to apply. We are equally keen on applications from school leavers interested in a career in teaching. This role offers an invaluable professional experience onto which a teaching career could be built. Opportunities for professional development and formal TA training would be provided. Likewise, individuals that have completed teacher training that are interested in gaining more experience before their all-important ECT year should get in touch!

Located to the west of Salisbury, the heart of a vibrant new community, St. Peter’s CE Primary Academy is set in extensive grounds overlooking the Wiltshire countryside. The building has state of the art facilities including a multi-use hall, extensive sports facilities inside and out, a multi-functional studio, food-technology room and a purpose-built nursery setting. 

St Peter’s is a welcoming and stimulating environment which enables all children to thrive. We have developed an active, exciting and fast-paced curriculum which stimulates, engages and stretches all children whilst engendering them with a lifelong love of learning. Through personalised learning and sky-high expectations, all children are able to flourish and experience success. We are a strong, caring and supportive school community where children are encouraged to be reflective and proactive learners.

From September 2023 (or as soon as possible thereafter), we will be looking for two TAs to join our team in delivering an inclusive, world class learning experience for all our pupils. The role will involve learning support for children as a TA

The successful candidate will be expected to:

  • Be expected to work closely with the class teacher
  • Be proactive and committed to differentiating and adapting learning to suit the needs of individual children
  • Have some relevant experience supporting pupils within KS1 or KS2 settings
  • Lead, inspire and motivate children
  • Have high expectations and excellent classroom practice
  • Have a desire to improve their own practice further

In return, we offer you:

  • Enthusiastic children
  • Willing, hardworking staff team
  • Supportive parents who are keen to be involved
  • A strong team of governors


We strongly encourage you to take a look at our website: www.stpeters.dsat.org.uk and that of the Trust: www.dsat.org.uk to get a feel for us.

Likewise, please get in touch with Oliver Martindale, our headteacher, in the school office for more information or to arrange a tour with our SENDCo, Becka Thomas.
