Horspath Church of England Primary School is looking for a caring and dedicated teaching assistant to join its teaching team.  Are you an enthusiastic and patient individual committed to helping to ensure high standards in education, both academically and pastorally?  We are seeking an empathetic, creative and flexible individual to support pupils with special educational needs in Key Stage 1. 

Are you friendly and approachable, and a collaborative team member?  Would you like to join a friendly, welcoming team in a thriving village primary school which benefits from being an academy in the River Learning Trust?

  • An established, skilled, dedicated and supportive staff team
  • Happy and enthusiastic children who enjoy learning and uphold the school values
  • A committed board of governors which provides an appropriate level of support and challenge
  • Engaged parents
  • The opportunity to work for a successful and growing multi-academy trust which cares about your professional development.

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. For more information on what it is like to work for the Trust, and the benefits you could access, please see our “Working in RLT” guide.
