1:1 Teaching Support Assistant

We are looking to appoint a committed teaching assistant to join our happy, friendly and dedicated team. Eastling Primary School is a good school (Ofsted October 2021) with a strong supportive community.

Do you have the skills to work with a pupil to support their personalised learning and social development? Are you adaptable and flexible, and ready to respond to the needs of the child?

Previous experience as a teaching assistant especially with children with additional needs would be beneficial, but not essential for the right person. The ideal candidate needs to be positive, highly motivated and flexible. The position will involve supporting a child in our year 3/4 class. Some support during unstructured times such as playtime and lunchtimes may be required.

The ability to think on your feet; working both independently and as part of the team, to promote and demonstrate resilience and be a positive role model for our children is key. It is essential that the applicant has good English and Maths skills. During the induction process any development areas will be identified and training will be provided.

The role is Term Time Only (38 weeks per year), and temporary until 31.08.2023 as the vacancy is linked to pupil funding; the post may have the opportunity to extend past that time frame.

Monday- Friday 8:45-3:20
