Teaching Assistant job summary

We are looking for an excellent Teaching Assistant with vision and a passion for bringing out the best in all children and can make a real difference in our school. Specifically, we would like someone who has the following qualities:

        • Calmness
        • Empathy
          • Enthusiasm
            • Flexibility
              • Initiative

              Visitors comment on the warm atmosphere in the school. Our children are friendly, enthusiastic and welcoming. They strive to do their best and enjoy attending school. We offer candidates the opportunity to join our supportive and motivated team of staff and governors with excellent opportunities for 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.

              The school reserves the right to consider and interview candidates ahead of the closing date if appropriate. An offer may be made to an exceptional candidate in this instance.

              The deadline for applications is 8th March 2024, with interviews taking place w/c 11th March 2024.

              Applications should be submitted via our recruitment portal MyNewTerm. Should you wish to discuss the role prior to application, then please email awiggin@charlburyschool.org. Visits to our school are warmly welcomed.
