Advert

We are looking for a dedicated individual to work full time as a learning support assistant in EYFS/KS1, providing support for a child with special educational needs. This is a fixed term contract, however there is the potential for it to be renewed annually whilst the child remains in the school.

Enjoying working with young children is essential, as is a good sense of humour and lots of energy, imagination, patience and enthusiasm. We are looking for someone with relevant experience in EYFS/KS1. An understanding of working with children with a pre-school stage of development or those who have social communication difficulties would be a particular advantage. 

The successful candidate will also have the ability to promote the learning of all children and to form a strong working relationship with the class teacher and the child's parents.

 

Information about the school

Churchill Church of England Primary School serves the community of Westerham, a charming market town in Kent. The school, which has approximately 210 pupils on roll, is rapidly improving under new leadership, attaining Ofsted "Good" in Jan 2020, and is situated in amazing grounds.

We are extremely proud to provide a safe and caring environment for our children where they can thrive, whilst promoting Christian and British values. Naturally the children are considered to be our greatest asset, which ensures they are at the heart of our strategic and operational decision making. The school fosters an ethos where our pupils are keen to learn, well-behaved and a joy to teach. We encourage their development into caring and socially minded individuals, who value diversity and inclusion and who actively support the local community and beyond with initiatives; supporting the local food bank and a variety of local charities are just two examples.

Our collective behaviours, teaching and decision-making are underpinned by our core values; Respect, Excellence, Determination, Courage, Creativity and Teamwork; all of which ensure a well-founded and consistent approach in everything we do.

We have strong links with St Mary’s Church Westerham and participate in the many activities aligned with the religious calendar, which draws us closer to the community as a whole. A team from the church regularly lead our worship, providing guidance to ensure that Christian worship and distinctiveness are an integral part of the school.

The school has a breakfast club and after school club which can be used by staff.
