It is an exciting opportunity to work as part of our school team to further advance our rapidly improving school. It will be an opportunity to play a full part in the continued development of our vision for all our children to become confident, secure, caring individuals who flourish through our creative and engaging curriculum. A willingness to cover Breakfast Club from 7:45am, when needed, would be an advantage.

We are a welcoming Church of England school with happy, well behaved and highly motivated children. We have high expectations of ourselves and the children. Parents are highly supportive of the school. This post is suitable for a very experienced Teaching Assistant with a good level of qualification.

* have a passion for creating an exciting learning environment
* have successful, recent experience of supporting teaching and assessing learning
* work positively with parents and families
* be willing to participate in all aspects of school life
* have high expectations of children's achievements and behaviour
* be flexible and work collaboratively and successfully as team members

Longlisted candidates will be allocated a visit to the school, prior to interview, on Friday 7 June 2019, with some short tasks during the day. Shortlisted candidates will then be invited to undertake a observed task on Tuesday 11 June and a formal interview on Thursday 13 June.
