"I love Cage Green and I know that Cage Green loves me," was what one of our children said during our recent, very successful, Ofsted inspection.  One of our excellent Midday Supervisors has just moved to become one of our TA team and we are looking for someone new to replace her.   If you are the kind of person who understands why what the child has said was important, you might be the person we are looking for.  

Our Midday Supervisors mainly work in our canteen.  You will supervise the chidlren whilst they eat, managing good behaviour and ensuring that the environment is safe and clean. You will be working alongside our excellent kitchen team who prepare and serve the food and you will deal with food spills (with the children's help!) and ensure that tables and disposal areas are clear. You will wipe tables after the meal is finished and ensure the floor is left clean and tidy.   We encourage independence and the children do a lot of their own serving and clearing away. We would like them to do more of this and you may be the person to help us.  You might also be asked to cover the playground while the children are playing. 

The role is a fun one.  We can't guarantee that you won't get beans on you, and it is very likely that someone will burst their yoghurt on you, but our chidlren are brilliant; they are fun, courteous, respectful and REALLY want a chat.  

If you think this role might be for you but you want to be sure, you are very welcome to come and visit us and see for yourself. Once you have met our children, we are confident that you will be eager to come and join us!  

The hours are 12.00 – 1.30pm Monday – Friday, 38 weeks per year.  The salary will be £3,633 per annum We require the successful candidate to start as soon as possible.

Being a Midday Supervisor can be an excellent stepping stone to further roles in schools and is an excellent starting point for someone who thinks they might want to become a TA.  

Previous applicants should not apply.  We reserve the right to close the process early if a suitable applicant is found.  Invitation to interview will be sent via email so please ensure that the email provided on the applicaiton form is correct and monitored regularly.  A lack of response to an interview invitation will preclude further invitations.  CVs are not accepted.
