What the school offers its staff

Our TAs provide invaluable support for children in the classroom. They work with groups and individuals to ensure that they can achieve the learning set by the class teachers. They support, monitor and guide pupils to complete activities independently and where necessary give specific instruction on how a task should be completed. Our TA team also deliver booster groups to some of children who need additional support to achieve specific goals, e.g. passing the phonics screening check. These groups are kept very small to ensure that we have maximum impact. Working as a TA also means gathering and preparing resources, being available for first aid and providing social and emotional support for pupils when they need it.

Our TAs work across multiple classes and can move around year groups depending on the needs of the children. This year, the TA role is to support in year 1. Currently, we have two early career teachers in year 1 who are fantastic but also benefit from TAs who have experience of schools and are dedicated to making a difference to children’s outcomes. The role would be working across both classes throughout the day.

The children here are well-behaved, hard-working and eager to learn. The facilities are fantastic with space and equipment readily available. Parents are keen to support the school and are positive about the improvements continuing to be made.

This is a brilliant opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of the nearly four hundred children. If you have the knowledge and skills we are looking for then we would be really keen to hear from you.
