The staff and governors of Ferndale Primary & Nursery School are offering an exciting opportunity to join our dedicated team. We wish to appoint an outstanding 1:2:1 Teaching Assistant to work in Foundation Stage 2 with a child with ASD needs.
This is a specific purpose contract and your appointment will last only as long as the named child remains at the school or requires a Teaching Assistant.
We are ideally looking for someone with experience in Foundation Stage but will consider applicants with experience in other primary year groups.
Would you like to work in a forward thinking school where staff are free to have fun with the children, to plan work that excites them and their pupils and have the chance to take risks?
To work with outstanding teachers who let their creativity guide them?
To work with the latest technologies and prepare children for life in the 21st century?
To join a friendly, supportive and inspirational team?
To help children build memories they'll carry with them for the rest of their life?
If you do...
And you have high expectations, want the best for pupils and want to make a difference. If you have a sense of humour and a sense of fun, then come and look around Ferndale, it might just be the place for you.
Your working hours will be from 8.20am to 3.25pm, Monday to Thursday, and 8.20am to 2pm on Fridays, term time only plus TD days.
