Following some changes amongst our organisation of support staff we are looking to appoint new teaching assistants to support learning across our school. We also have a number of children with special needs already with us or expected to join our family in September that will need additional support. Although the actual number of available posts cannot yet be confirmed there will be a number of posts. Most posts will be full school days but there may be opportunity for some part-time working as well.

To be successful, you must be very hard working, committed to developing opportunities and chances for all children as well as showing a good understanding of child development.

Experience of working within schools is a distinct advantage!

The role involves working with a range of groups and individuals to provide calming support alongside other colleagues to ensure all children are able to meet their potential. We are a school that loves being outdoors and getting out and about. We have a fleet of minibuses and people with experience and willingness to drive school vehicles are also needed.

A visit to the school is highly recommended and we look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our happy, hardworking school.

Wouldham All Saints Church of England Primary School is committed to the safeguarding of all children and we will carry out rigorous recruitment procedures that ensure the successful candidate is suitable for working within the school. Part of this involves enhanced criminal record checks and the collection of appropriate references.

Information about the school

Wouldham All Saints Church of England Primary School is two form entry village school nestling close to the banks of the River Medway and close to both the M20 and M2 motorways. The school prides itself on the provision of a high quality learning experience that enables all children to feel valued and welcomed as part of the school family. Partnership with parents is a priority for us as is effective working with other local schools.

We have a strong Christian ethos and this is reflected in all areas of our school. The school has grown enormously since we moved five years ago into new state of the art premises.

We also host a satellite provision of Nexus Foundation Special School, working closely with the team to provide high quality inclusion for all.

We are committed to the safeguarding of our children as a top priority and all recruitment practices will ensure that personnel are safe to be with children. Everyone must have effective references and a satisfactory enhanced DBS check.
