Bedfordshire Schools Trust (BEST) comprises ten flourishing academies and five nurseries delivering first choice education, from Early Years to Advanced Level study. Our vision is ‘to grow the BEST in everyone.’ We believe in the importance of high expectations, hard work and the development of a community of schools where each of us strive to ‘be the best that we can be.’ Our schools work together to add value and compete to continually improve.

Campton Academy is a growing lower school with an exciting future.  With this in mind, we are seeking to appoint two enthusiastic and dedicated teaching assistants to join our friendly and supportive team.

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive and welcoming school with strong values. 

You will need to demonstrate good communication skills, high expectations and a passion for working with children. Flexibility and enthusiasm are equally important qualities. Experience of supporting pupils who have SEND needs would be beneficial.

A willingness to give first aid is also desirable but training will be given.  You will need to have good communication skills and be able to interact with children and adults in an enthusiastic and positive way.

A key responsibility will involve promoting children’s welfare and being vigilant to any sign of safeguarding needs.

If you have the desire to make a real difference to a child’s school experience, please get in touch.  Informal visits to our school are warmly welcomed and encouraged; please contact us to arrange an appointment to come and meet with the Principal.

Applicants must be willing to undertake a DBS clearance and the Academy must receive two satisfactory references before the successful candidate can commence employment.
