The school’s ‘Gold Standard’ underpins everything. The systems and procedures in place are known and understood by everyone. (Ofsted, February 2020),

Seacroft Grange Primary School is looking to recruit Teaching Assistants to support learning and teaching which ensures our fantastic children have a ‘GOLD standard’ education. Are you a team-player looking to work in a vibrant and supportive school which ‘wants the best for and the best from everyone in our learning community? Opportunities do not often come up for employment at Seacroft Grange but due to the retirement of 2 respected colleagues we’re looking to welcome new staff to our team.

Seacroft Grange is looking to appoint a confident, compassionate and skilled practitioner to join our team. This is a full time, permanent contract (following a successful probationary period).

We are a one-form entry Primary school based in Seacroft, Leeds. We are a community based school and pride ourselves on the relationships we build in school, as a staff team, with our parents and the agencies we work with. Working in an inner-city school can be challenging but is massively rewarding. We encourage you to look around our school before applying and you can book an appointment by contacting: Julie Hinchliff on 0113 2605385.

Are you a passionate and dedicated person who could make a difference to the lives of children? Do you work well with others and are you happy to provide support to the wider staff team? Maybe you’re thinking of a career in teaching and want to gain experience. Seacroft Grange could be for you!

Do you want to work in a school with a Headteacher and Governing Body who set out a crystal-clear direction for the school? (Ofsted, June 2016) Can you help us to achieve our commitment of wanting ‘the best for and the best from everyone in our learning community’?
