Snodland CEP School is a 'good' school where "pupils achieve well, behave well and care about each other" (Ofsted March 2017).

We would like a Teaching Assistant to join our dedicated and enthusiastic team. The position will involve working with a class, supporting children individually or in small groups.

This position is for 32.5 hours per week (8.30am-3.30pm + 0.5 hours each lunchtime as a Play Assistant).

We are looking for someone with good subject knowledge in reading, writing and maths (preferably with GCSE grade C or above in English and Maths), who has good computing skills and is able to work well as part of a large team, supporting children to make progress in their learning.

We have two levels of TAs in our school - TAs that are class-based and TAs who are class-based but also cover classes in the absence of the Class Teacher. Either of these positions are a possibility.

This position might be good for somebody who is thinking of applying for a Schools Direct placement for September 2019, who wants the experience of being in a school before training to be a teacher. We have been successfully suporting Schools Direct teachers for several years. In our recent Ofsted inspection it was noted that "development and training for all staff is a strength" and we have many teachers in post who completed their Schools Direct training with us.

Snodland CEP School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children. This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure Application to the Criminal Records Bureau.
