Scholes (Elmet) Primary School is a happy and healthy place to learn - and it's also a happy and healthy place to work.
We have vacancies for teaching assistants to join our friendly effective Sphere Federation team. The positions may be at Scholes (Elmet) Primary School, or one of the other schools in our Federation (Moortown Primary School or St James' CE Primary School).
The ideal candidates must have good skills in English and Maths.
We want people who demonstrates personal qualities of dedication, patience, flexibility and humour. They will be able to work collaboratively as part of a team as well as respond quickly to the changing needs of the school and individual children.
All applicants who can demonstrate strong skills and experience will be welcomed. Recently qualified graduates who are interested in a career in teaching are particularly encouraged to apply. (The posts offer an opportunity to gain valuable insight into primary education; we work closely with a School Direct provider and will support staff on this route into teaching.)
Potential applicants are welcome to visit the school by prior arrangement.
For children and staff alike, Sphere Federation has:
A perfect balance of care and support with high expectations
- A leadership team dedicated to attainment, achievement and enjoyment
- Friendly, welcoming staff
- A great atmosphere and ethos which promotes inclusion and co-operation
- A commitment to diversity and a workforce that reflects the population of Leeds
- A commitment to safeguarding and promoting welfare and safety (thorough checks will be made of the successful applicant’s background credentials, including enhanced DBS checks)
For further information and an insight into our schools please check out our websites.
The posts are for term time only and will be for around 31.5 hours per week. The posts are temporary in the first instance until 31 August 2021 with a possibility of becoming permanent. The posts may lead to a School Direct teacher trainee position in our schools.
Closing date : 04 June 2020
