Do you strive to make a difference to the place you work and the pupils you support?

Would you like to be part of a small, active, supportive and friendly team?

Are you an effective, inspirational and motivated person?


Then, would you like to work in our small but lively village Primary School?

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and energetic full time teaching assistant to support our pupils from October 2022.

We can offer you a friendly ‘family’ ethos, a well resourced working environment, a staff team that is caring and committed to ensuring children’s maximum achievement, delightful pupils to work with and supportive governors and parents.

We need someone who has high expectations and a drive to improve outcomes for our learners. The applicant should be a good team player but also be self motivated and able to act upon their own initiative.  The ideal applicant should have a good understanding of child development and of how children learn and be able to enthuse, engage and challenge children in their learning journey.  High standards of personal numeracy and literacy are expected in order that our pupils benefit from these when being supported. 

The applicant should understand that working in a small school often means going the extra mile without being asked, because it benefits the whole community - especially the pupils.

Visits to the school are strongly recommended. Please contact the school office to make the necessary arrangements and/or to request an applicant’s pack. Applications on line are also welcomed.
