Teaching Assistant job summary

Early Years Teaching Assistant 17h 45m per week 8.30 am to 12.00 noon (8.15 am on Tuesdays) Term time only plus 5 INSET days Grade 3: SCP 5 - £19,312 per annum (actual salary £17,924.34) Fixed Term Contract until 30 August 2024 We wish to appoint a Teaching Assistant to support the learning of disadvantaged pupils (at risk of not reaching age-related expectations) with their early literacy development in their reception year. We are seeking an adult who is calm, consistent and committed, whilst our children thrive with people who are friendly, firm and fair. Experience of working in a school and any training (for example ELSA, NELI, Talk Boost) would be an advantage. However, neither is essential as full training will be provided for a suitably committed candidate. This role would suit an experienced Teaching Assistant seeking a new challenge or someone (who meets the person-specification) ready for a career change. This is an opportunity to make a real difference to children’s lives and futures. A chance to join a committed team, on an improvement journey, to offer the education all our children deserve to ensure they reach their potential. We can offer the support and encouragement of a committed team, access to high quality CPD and children who will make you smile every day. Starting as soon as possible, the ideal working pattern is 8.30 am to 12.00 noon, Monday to Friday (8.15 on a Tuesday). However, there could be some flexibility if mutually agreeable. This post is linked specifically to an external funding stream which is due to end on 31 August 2024. However, there is the strong possibility of this becoming a permanent role pending a review of funding.
