Rosslyn Park Primary and Nursery School is seeking to appoint a Level 1 Teaching Assistant who is an excellent practitioner. You will have high expectations of pupil progress and a drive for self-development.
Rosslyn Park is a large primary school with nearly 700 children on roll and we pride ourselves on supporting each one of them and their families. Our children feel valued and have a sense of belonging to the school and the local diverse community. We believe strongly in developing the whole child and ensure that our knowledge-rich curriculum is supported by strong pastoral provision.
In recent years Rosslyn has received the Wellbeing School Award, the Arts Platinum Award and the History QM in recognition of the fantastic work we do. We work in partnership with a wide range of organisations such as Place2Be, Royal Shakespeare Company, Nottingham Contemporary, The University of Nottingham, and provide inclusive and accessible activities for everyone.
We enhance the curriculum by a whole-school digital approach. Our children have a 1:1 iPad in KS2 and 1:3 in EYFS and KS1, and have access to a variety of learning platforms at school and at home.
Rosslyn’s teachers and support staff “speak effusively about the quality and quantity of training they receive. As a result, staff are deeply reflective about their own practice and teaching across the school is consistently good.” (Ofsted). At Rosslyn, leaders place a strong emphasis on coaching, staff training and professional development and as outlined in a recent school’s quality assurance review: “Senior staff display extremely high level of empathic leadership.” We are looking for inspirational teaching assistants who are committed to creating a stimulating learning environment through excellent classroom practice.
In return we offer:
• A welcoming community and a highly motivated, professional staff team that are driven towards continuously raising standards.
• Excellent professional development opportunities through an extensive range of network groups and other Transform Trust initiatives
• Calm and purposeful learning environments
• Excellent partnerships between pupils, staff, parents, governors and community
• A forward-thinking approach to teaching and learning throughout the school
• Career opportunities as part of a successful Multi Academy Trust
We recommend and welcome visits to gain a true understanding of the fantastic things that go on at Rosslyn Park and what a great place for children and staff our school is.
If you would like further information or would like to discuss the role or arrange a visit to the school please contact the school office.
