Lenham Primary School are seeking an experienced, well organised and enthusiastic Administration Assistant to join our busy office team. The successful candidate will work calmly amidst frequent interruptions whilst priding themselves on making an excellent first impression of our school and creating long-lasting relationships with parent and colleagues, but especially with the pupils as they are the heart of everything that we do.

We welcome applications from applicants who should have previous, proven, administration and office experience and skills, ideally within a school environment. Good interpersonal and communication skills are a must, and the ability to prioritise workload, take own initiative and to work to deadlines is essential. Experience of working with school’s admin systems (especially SIMS) would be an advantage but not essential as training will be provided.

The position is for 20 hours per week, term-time only: Wednesday 12 - 4:30pm, Thursday and Friday 8am - 4:30pm. We are flexible on the Pay scale between KR4 and KR5 dependent on demonstrable previous school experience. (Kent Range 4: £17,189 - £18,058; Kent Range 5: £18059 - £19,863 pro rata).

The closing date for applications is 12pm on Friday 18th January with interviews for those short-listed expected to take place on Tuesday 29th January.  We will be asking those invited to interview to undertake a couple of activities, one of which will be to read a story to a group of our children.

Applications should be made via Kent Teach online submission by the closing date. Any queries should be sent by email to Emma Pike, School Business Manager on finance@lenham.kent.sch.uk.

Lenham Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children. Appointment to the position will be subject to an enhanced DBS Check and proof of eligibility to work in the UK.
