Do you love to instil a sense of adventure into learning? Do you bounce out of bed every morning believing you can make a difference? Will you go that extra mile to support our children in achieving their full potential?
Sussex Road Primary School is seeking an enthusiastic and energetic teaching assistant to join our friendly and dynamic team. The combination of our Forest School, evolving curriculum and innovative ideas ensure that no two days are ever the same.
Our Mission Statement - QUESTION, CHALLENGE, EXPLORE - is integral to all we do.
Come and be that teaching assistant that a child never forgets.
Sussex Road Primary School is an exciting place to learn and work:
Relationships between staff and pupils are respectful. Pupils are also happy to share their mistakes and talk about their misunderstanding because of the high level of trust between adults and pupils. This culture in classrooms has a positive impact on learning.
Pupils conduct themselves well around the school. Pupils are helpful and courteous to visitors and each other.
Teachers know pupils well and planned learning builds on what pupils know and can do.
Pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain. The school’s values are known and understood. Pupils play an active role in developing their school and relish the opportunities they have to make decisions.
Adults have high expectations of children. As a result, children develop very strong personal and social skills. Children work well together and are highly responsive to adult direction and instruction. Routines are well established. Classrooms in the early years are busy and highly purposeful places to learn.
If you are passionate about ensuring every child succeeds to the best of their ability, we will ensure you are empowered with the support and career development to achieve this.
We welcome applications from either qualified teaching assistants, experienced teaching assistants or from those who are just starting out on their teaching assistant career. We also welcome any 'future teachers' who would like to get experience in a school setting.
GCSE (or equivalent) Grade C in Maths and English is essential for this post. You will also need to have excellent time management skills, ability to work using your own initiative and a sense of humour!
