What skills and experience we're looking for

Whitefriars School is a fully integrated 3 to 18 all-through school. In March 2024, our school was judged Outstanding by OFSTED for Nursery and Reception (EYFS) and good in all other areas including Sixth Form.

We are looking for a creative, positive and committed Teaching Assistant to join our vibrant team to work across both schools.

You will share our values-based ethos in which a dynamic classroom culture engages pupils positively and actively in the process of learning so that they make excellent progress

Our pupils make rapid progress and achieve academic excellence in an environment of love and care. Our school is a strong family where expectations are high, values are positive and children are treasured. Our goal is to equip our pupils with the knowledge, skills and character to lead successful lives.

We believe that anyone can learn anything and the growth mind-set underpins everything we do. We do not believe that some pupils are bright and that others are not. We believe in the limitless capacity for everyone to achieve great things. We believe that what we become and what we achieve comes from great teaching, hard work and fantastic support.

We provide pupils with a curriculum of the highest quality. We have new state-of-the art buildings with a wide range of extensive facilities. Our pedagogical approach is rooted in the science of how children learn. We ask lots of questions, we explain in small steps, we link to prior learning and we guide first practice. Our pupils think hard about their learning. We read a lot because it has a profound impact on educational outcomes.

What the school offers its staff

Our teachers get to know the pupils as individuals and build meaningful relationships that last. We ensure that all of our pupils feel they belong. We explicitly teach our pupils to live by positive shared values and to hold these deep in their hearts. We are a Rights Respecting Gold accredited school. This creates our wonderful learning environments and great behaviour. We offer a wide range of innovative clubs.

We maintain a great work-life balance.
