West Hill is an incredibly special place to be. We are a newly formed school supporting children with a range of additional needs at primary level. All our children have additional needs and an Education, Health and Care Plan to support their learning.
Working 29.85 hours per week/39 weeks per year (term time) but flexibility around the working pattern could be considered, we are looking for staff in both part time (for a minimum of 2 days per week) and full time roles. Please highlight clearly on your application form the number of days (2, 3 or 5) that you are applying for.
Working pattern 9am to 3.25pm, Monday to Friday, with a 30 minute unpaid break and a 15 minute weekly meeting outside these hours.
Becoming a TA can also serve as a great step towards a future career if you have secured your degree and are hoping to gain further experience before training to teach or following the pathway of learning to be an Educational Psychologist or Speech Therapist.
As our school grows year on year we are looking for enthusiastic TAs to become part of our team. Our recent transformation means we have achieved great things and we believe West Hill is a very special place to be. If this is appealing then we would love to hear from you.
