We are looking to appoint a motivated Teaching Assistant to join our school.
As a lead school within the Scarborough Teaching Alliance we share best practice and are committed to training the next generation of teachers and support staff.

• Have high expectations of learning and behaviour and inspire and motivate our children
• Be supportive, nurturing and understanding with high expectations.
• Seek to make learning exciting and a positive experience
• Work well as part of a team
• Demonstrate good communication skills both orally and written

We can offer you:
• A warm, happy school where we value everyone and have a philosophy of kindness and support for each other. Our approach is not always conventional but has the impact our children need- and deserve
• Happy, enthusiastic and well behaved children
• A school with exciting and attractive learning environments,
