Job summary

We are seeking to appoint an exceptional teaching assistant to join the Emotional Literacy and Feelings (ELF) team at Malmesbury Park Primary Academy.

The role involves working in a team of three to provide ELF support to children with social and emotional needs, as well as providing support to the wider school community as required. Part of the role will entail developing strong relationships with parents, carers and children alike. You may act as a key person for a number of children, taking responsibility for their social and emotional wellbeing throughout their time with us.

The ideal candidate will be hard working, friendly and outgoing. They will have an enthusiasm for working with children, particularly those with social and emotional needs. They will have a talent for engaging with sometimes complex children, encouraging social interaction, developing independence, self esteem and encouraging all individuals to achieve their goals.

The right person will be confident in dealing with challenging behaviour and understanding complex social and emotional issues. A qualification to support children with social and emotional needs would be highly beneficial – for example ELSA.

We operate 14 academies in Plymouth, Bournemouth, Dorset and Wiltshire. We are building this Trust on a clear set of values, behaviours and curriculum principles. At the heart of those values and principles is a belief in our young people and a determination to support them to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to become the successful citizens for today and all of their tomorrows. Our vision is to enable individual academies to flourish with curriculum autonomy, within a consistent framework of a metacognition focused pedagogy. We are committed to collaboration with other schools, MATs, colleges, Local Authorities, employers and Government to bring the widest benefit to young people and our staff.
Our core business is delivering exceptional education for children and young people with a mission to help all pupils aspire to achieve beyond the expectations that others put on them. We do this through the development of a talented and committed work force. In order to deliver exceptional opportunities for learning, we need highly motivated staff across all parts of the organisation.

Those we recruit are able to demonstrate that they share our values, are highly motivated to work with colleagues within and beyond their school to continuously develop their skills and pursue professional excellence, and are committed to providing the highest standards of teaching for all children. If that is you then we would be delighted to receive your application.
