Wonderful Teaching Assistant Required

We are looking for a fantastic Teaching Assistant for 5 mornings a week (8.30am-12pm) to work with a specific child in Key Stage 2 to help them reach their full potential in all areas of school life. You will need to have high expectations of pupil achievement and behaviour as well as believing that every child has their own interests and talents.

In return we can offer you a school of delightful children who are well motivated, happy and enthusiastic about school life. Please download the documents below for a Job Description and Person Specification and do visit our website for further information about our school.

The position will include providing 1 to 1 support for a truly delightful child in Key Stage 2 as well as occasionally offering general classroom assistance when required. Previous experience of working with children on a 1 to 1 basis will be an advantage but is not essential.      

Our School is committed to the Safeguarding of children. Appointment to this position will be subject to satisfactory references, a pre-employment and an enhanced Criminal Records Bureau Disclosure Check.

Visits to the school are encouraged. To arrange this and/ or for an informal chat with the Headteacher, please contact the school office on (01732) 832660 or at office@leigh.kent.sch.uk. We look forward to welcoming you to our school.

Please note that this will initially be a one year fixed term contract and is linked to the additional funding received for this particular child. There is every possibility however that there will be an offer to extend this at end of the academic year.
