(pro-rata for term-time working)

32.5hrs per week

We are seeking to appoint a qualified and experienced Teaching Assistant to join our team at Acre Rigg Academy on a Fixed Term Contract from 4th September 2024 until 19th July 2025.

The successful candidate will be available to work from 8.30am until 3.30pm - Monday to Friday during term time.

Calculation of term time only

Term time only plus is calculated based on the following: • Number of ‘teaching’ weeks – 39 weeks; plus • Public (bank) holidays – 1.6 weeks (8 days); plus • Individual leave entitlement - 5.4 weeks (26 days) or 6.4 weeks (31 days)

Individual leave entitlement is calculated on the length of continuous service. Employees with less than 5 years’ service will receive 26 days annual leave. Employees with more than 5 years’ service will receive 31 days annual leave. For example: Calculation for employees with less than 5 years’ service: 39 weeks (term time) + 26 days (annual leave) + 8 days (public holidays) = 45 weeks’ pay, to be paid in 12 equal monthly instalments

Calculation for employees with more than 5 years’ service: 39 weeks (term time) + 31 days (annual leave) + 8 days (public holidays) = 46 weeks’ pay, to be paid in 12 equal monthly instalments
