  • Ref:KCC886-2028-108S
  • Posted:20/09/2019
  • Pay:KR3
  • Start Date:ASAP but could be September
  • App Close Date:01/10/2019 at 12:00

30 hours per week, term-time only, to start as soon as possible.  20 hours either morning or afternoon would be considered (please specify this on the application)

We are looking to appoint up to two teaching assistants to support outstanding teaching and learning.  You could be deployed anywhere in the school from our Pre-School through to Year 6 depending on the needs of the children.  Candidates must express their preferred Key Stage in their applications: Early Years/KS1/KS2.

 Our children deserve someone with:

*a mature attitude and infinite patience

*excellent communication skills, both written and spoken

*a caring and calm nature

*an excellent attendance record

You will be required to support children's educational, social and emotional development.  There are sometimes aspects of physical development that require support including toiletting needs; this would be for specific children, for which training would be provided.  Prior experience in a childcare/educational setting would be advantageous but a commitment to the post and the children is much more important.

All teaching assistants have outstanding professional development.  For exceptional teaching assistants, the school may support progression routes through to gaining formal teaching qualifications.

Information about the school

We are one of the largest primary schools in Kent with nearly 800 children on roll, including a 52-place pre-school. Our Ofsted inspection, November 2016, found every aspect of the school to be OUTSTANDING. This represents a remarkable turnaround for the school which is attributable to the dedication and professionalism of ALL staff. A new teaching block opened in November 2015 with eight new classrooms, a second hall and staff facilities. Our school is warm and welcoming to children, their families and staff. We are committed to maintaining our outstanding school in an environment that promotes intellectual, physical, emotional, social and spiritual development. As with any school, there are challenges...but the rewards of working at Cliftonville are huge. The school became an academy in December 2013, a partner in a small local Multi Academy Trust called the Coastal Academies Trust. The school holds a number of important accreditations including the Inclusion Quality Mark and the Continuous Professional Learning and Development Quality Mark.
