What skills and experience we're looking for

We have an exciting vacancy for an outstanding teaching assistant to join our dynamic and committed Key Stage 2 team.

Our support staff team is integral to the school’s vision to ensure that all children can flourish and achieve their full potential in all aspects of school life.

The successful candidate will inspire our children and support them in making good progress in their learning and social/emotional development. In addition to providing classroom support, you will spend a proportion of time working 1:1 to fulfil the requirements of an EHCP (not behaviour related) as well as carrying out speech and language interventions across the school.

Ideally, the successful candidate will possess a relevant TA qualification, but all experience and training, particularly in Makaton, will be beneficial.

The successful candidate will:

  • Be sympathetic to the culture and ethos of our Christian distinctiveness.
  • Be willing to take advantage of training opportunities that allow you to further develop your skills.
  • Have enthusiasm, drive and commitment to the development of excellence.
  • Be committed to creating a nurturing environment that stimulates positive behaviour and well-being.
  • Share our vision for outstanding primary school practice and development.
  • Be an excellent team player with the highest expectations of themselves.
  • Be involved in all aspects of school life.
  • Have experience of working with children across the primary age range.
  • Have excellent literacy and numeracy skills.
  • Take responsibility for observing, planning, tracking and evaluating children’s learning and development.
  • Work in partnership with parents/carers when supporting children in their learning and development.

What the school offers its staff

Coleshill C of E Primary School is a two-form entry primary, inspected by Ofsted as Good in February 2022, with a flourishing nursery taking children from two years old.

The school is part of the Birmingham Diocesan Multi-Academy Trust, a dynamic and supportive MAT committed to “life in its fullness” for all, and who understand the importance of investment in people.

We believe our school should be a place where we all want to be – where our strong values are lived out by everyone within school, from our well-behaved children who want to learn, to our dedicated colleagues who are as committed to quality as you are.

Our school stands at the heart of the community it serves, and benefits from extensive open space and an ongoing programme of investment in the grounds and buildings. Our easily accessible location makes commuting from Birmingham, Coventry, Nuneaton, Tamworth Lichfield and the surrounding areas simple.

As part of the team you will be supported by your class teacher whilst also enjoying the autonomy to bring your own unique experiences to the classroom. We understand the importance of the broad and deep learning opportunities that allow children to engage with their learning and flourish. Music and sport in particular are our passions - we look forward to hearing about yours.

We can offer you:

  • Pupils who are well behaved, love their teachers and want to make the most of their abilities.
  • A committed and collaborative Senior Leadership Team, Local Academy Board and Multi-Academy Trust.
  • Teaching and support staff colleagues with high expectations of behaviour, learning and personal development.
  • A caring culture with a commitment to providing the best for our children, including pastoral support based on a restorative approach.
  • Employee schemes and a supportive environment to help ensure positive wellbeing for all.
