Kings Priory School wishes to appoint a well-motivated Out of School Club Assistant. If you have childcare experience and would like a part-time working pattern, this role may give you the flexibility you need, allowing time in your day for other commitments. This position is ideal for a Teaching Assistant who desires additional hours, or a Teacher who would like to step away from the pressures of teaching, yet still allowing the ability to work with children in a part-time environment.

Your role will be varied and fun, playing sports with children, exploring outdoors, engaging in arts and crafts, serving snacks and looking after children between the ages of 5 to 12 years old. You will also be required to administer first aid.
We are looking for candidates with experience of working with children and who are familiar with providing excellent customer service to stakeholders. You will need to be organised and energetic as well as having the necessary experience or qualifications in childcare.
This role is suitable for anyone with experience of working for children, leading groups of children and have experience of running inside/outside activities. If you would like an opportunity to work part-time with children this role may be perfect for you.
