Brabourne CEP School is looking for an enthusiastic and committed Teaching Assistant to join our wonderful school team. This position will predominantly be providing additional personalised support for a child in our Year 3/4 class, but the successful candidate will also be working with other children in small groups. This post is specifically to support the children with their learning, in order for them to successfully access the curriculum.

  • has the ability to build excellent relationships with children, colleagues and parents 
  • has knowledge of how to develop the whole child 
  • is confident to work independently and can use their initiative 
  • enjoys working as part of a team 

    In return we can offer you: 
  • a friendly and committed staff 
  • well behaved and motivated pupils 
  • great opportunities to continue your own learning and development 

Successful candidates would need to uphold and believe in our school ethos and core Christian values and prove that they can make an invaluable contribution to our children's education and development. 

The post available is for 3 hours per day, term time only. Pay is at KR3 (Approx. £6,891.25 Pro-rata). Hours are 9am to 12pm.

As long as funding is secured there is a strong chance that the role will continue into the following academic year. 

Visits to the school are essential, where possible, as part of the recrutiment process – please contact headteacher@brabourne.kent.sch.uk to find out more about the role and to arrange a visit.
