What skills and experience we're looking for

We wish to appoint an enthusiastic, experienced and highly motivated teaching assistant to join our outstanding staff team. A Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) qualification would be an advantage but is not essential. We have a friendly, supportive and dynamic team of staff who are dedicated to making learning challenging, exciting, infectious and fun. We are a compassionate school dedicated to meeting the needs of all pupils and committed to the welfare of our staff. We continually build towards our vision of “Growing together in wisdom and love; discovering life in all its fullness.

Friday: 8.30am – 11.40am & 12.40pm – 3.25pm

As well as this, there will be 4 x 30 minute lunch duties a week between 11.40am until 12.10pm. The days have yet to be confirmed.

We wish to appoint someone who:

  • Is an excellent team worker;
  • Is passionate about learning and working with children of all ages and supporting them to achieve their best;
  • Can build positive relationships and relate well to a wide range of children and adults;
