Our Academy is in a small village in a delightful rural setting. We converted to Academy Status in June 2016. The children are confident and engaging to work with. Our community is close knit with a very active Friends of the School group. With a relatively new leadership team, we are starting the next phase of our journey with vigour and enthusiasm. We are embedding our knowledge based curriculum and further developing our staff team.

You will need a good sense of humour and be a very flexible member of our small staff team. You will need to have good maths and English subject knowledge, be well organised and firm, but fun! We hope the post holder will be flexible to work across the Primary age range.

We can offer you a supportive environment with on-going CPD and a forward looking school. Applicants should state any experience they have, in teaching and any other work environment, their educational philosophy, what you could bring to the post and future aspirations.

Grade D £16,389 - £16,663 (April 2024 Support staff pay award pending)

You will need to work across Monday to Friday each week, and will be required to attend work during term time, plus an additional week to incorporate training days at the school.

Closing Date: Monday 08 July 2024 9am

Interview date: TBC

If we receive sufficient applicants of a high calibre, we may bring the closing date forward.

Visits to the Academy are encouraged and can be arranged by calling 01366 377205

Role Purpose

We hope to find an excellent teaching assistant with a successful track record whilst being flexible to work across the primary age range.
