Are you looking for an exciting Teaching Assistant post where you can develop and progress in your career?
We are looking to recruit 3 full-time Teaching Assistants to work at our fantastic school from September 2021. We have a great mix of children, a strong and welcoming staff team and we have a very good reputation for the inclusion of children with special needs, including a number on the autistic spectrum. We have a supportive parent body and huge grounds to make creative use of. We had another very positive Ofsted inspection in March 2018.
We require skilled and enthusiastic TAs who can support teaching and learning and address the personal and individual needs of our pupils. You will need to be a good communicator, cheerful, calm, resilient and able to work as part of a team. Ideally, you will be qualified to at least NVQ2 in a relevant area and have some experience of working in a primary school. Experience and expertise of working with children with communication difficulties, medical issues, SEMH needs or on the autistic spectrum will be advantageous in this role.
The roles are permanent but subject to a successful 6-month probationary period. The role will be paid on Band B1 with progression up to B3 expected following successful performance management. One of the roles has a medical element and will be paid at B3 from the start. Where appropriate, we will offer pay point portability for experienced TAs already working at other schools. Your hours of work will be 8.30-3.30 Mon-Fri, with 30 minutes for lunch, term time only. You will not routinely be expected to work Teacher Training Days, but may be invited to do so on occasion and be paid overtime.
Further information about the school can be found by visiting the school website.
You are welcome to attend an online meeting with the Head Teacher and SENDCO to find out more about the school and roles and ask any questions you may have. This is planned for 4.30 on Thursday 27th May. If you would like to join the meeting, please email the school office for the link.
The closing date for applications is noon on the 4th June 2021. If you are successful in the short-listing process, you will be invited to attend an interview on 17th June 2021. Please note: interviews may be held remotely.
