Our Vision: Our children will be part of an adventurous, caring family. They will have the courage to meet challenges and to learn creatively, making full use of our outstanding natural environment.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and energetic teaching assistant to join our friendly and dynamic team. The combination of our passion for learning outside the classroom, evolving curriculum and innovative ideas ensure that no two days are ever the same. This role is mainly supporting children with special education needs across different classes, however, aspects of the role will be flexible.

This is a full-time (term time only, pro-rata) 30 weekly hour fixed-term role. The position is for 5 days a week, 8.45am until 3.15pm.

We need someone who has high expectations and a drive to improve outcomes for our children. The applicant should be a good team player but also be self-motivated and able to act upon his or her 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. 

You must be prepared to work both indoors and outdoors in order to support learners in a range of environments, even on cold days as we make use of our surroundings - which include our forest school. You 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.

We can offer you:

  • A friendly 'family' ethos
  • A well resourced working environment
  • A warm, supportive and committed staff team

Brook Community Primary School is committed to the safeguarding and promotion of children’s welfare. The post is subject to checks in line with this commitment including an Enhanced DBS Disclosure check.
