Do you strive to make a difference to the place you work and the pupils you support?

Would you like to be part of a small, active, supportive and friendly team?

Are you a positive, inspirational and motivated person?

If the answer is yes to all of these, we would love for you to come and work in our school!

We are seeking an enthusiastic and energetic teaching assistant to join our friendly and dynamic team in Year 1. The combination of our Forest School, evolving curriculum and innovative ideas ensure that no two days are ever the same. This role is mainly supporting a child on a 1:1 basis but may involve taking a smaller group for phonics. This role is linked to Higher Needs Funding so is initially for 1 year only.

There are plenty of opportunities for CPD from within the school, through external training and using the expertise of other schools which form part of the CARE Foundation Trust.

We need someone who has high expectations and a drive to improve outcomes for our children. The applicant should be a good team player but also be self-motivated and able to act upon his or her own initiative. 

The ideal applicant should have a good understanding of child development and of how children learn, and be able to enthuse, engage and challenge children in their learning journey. Please see our person specification for more information about the skills and experiences we are looking for which are more specific for the supported child.

You must be prepared to work both indoors and outdoors in order to support learners in a range of environments, even on cold days as we make use of our surroundings - which include our forest school. You should understand that working in a small school often means going the extra mile without being asked, because it benefits the whole community - especially the pupils.

We can offer you:

  • A friendly ‘family’ ethos
  • A well resourced working environment
  • A staff team that is caring and committed to ensuring children’s maximum achievement

We are happy to arrange socially distanced safe visits to the school but understand that this may not suit everyone. Please contact the school office on 01233 812614 or email office@brook-ashford.kent.sch.uk to arrange a visit.

Brook Community Primary School is committed to the safeguarding and promotion of children’s welfare. The post is subject to checks in line with this commitment including an Enhanced DBS Disclosure check.
