We are very excited about the new Primary provision for children in year 5 and 6 that we will be opening from September 2021. To support the primary teaching staff we are looking to recruit an experienced Teaching Assistant and Higher Level Teaching Assistant.
For both roles we are looking for someone with enthusiasm, patience and tolerance and a calm, friendly disposition. They will also have the ability to support early reading, writing and maths.
For the Higher-Level Teaching Assistant vacancy we are looking for someone with relevant experience and/or qualifications in a similar role who is able to demonstrate contributing effectively to teacher’s planning and the preparation of lessons. As well as this they will have experience of supporting teachers in evaluating pupil’s progress and monitor pupils’ responses to learning. Specialist knowledge and experience in behaviour management, pastoral care or early years special education needs is highly desirable.
The third vacancy we have based in our secondary school is that of Science Technician. If you have a Level 3 or equivalent Science qualification or relevant laboratory technician experience and would like to support our Science Teacher then we would love to hear from you.
The fourth vacancy is for a Teaching Assistant in our secondary school. This person will support one of our pupils that require support throughout their school day.
