  • To report, as appropriate using the school’s agreed referral procedures, on the behaviour of students during the class and on any problems arising.
  • To participate in training and other learning activities and in appraisal and professional development, as required by the school’s policies and practices

Person Specification:

  • Ability to work with a minimum of supervision.
  • Committed to the wider life of the school.


  • The chance to make a difference to children’s lives
  • Fast career progression.
