At St John’s Catholic Primary School, we understand that these are unprecedented times and that it is difficult for everyone.  However, we are still recruiting and can assure you that we will need Teaching Assistants in future, due to an increase in pupil numbers.  Therefore, if you are interested in applying, we would urge you to do so.  While we may be unable to hold face-to-face interviews, we would be able to facilitate this remotely.

We are seeking to appoint 2 highly motivated and enthusiastic teaching assistants, to join our staff at St John’s.  You will be an effective team player, caring and patient, with a sense of humour and be sympathetic to the ethos of the school.

One post will be supporting KS2 and another will be a 1:1 post in KS1.  The ability to create secure boundaries and to have high expectations is essential to support a student with Special Educational Needs.  Applicants should hold a recognised qualification in Learning Support, NVQ Level 2, or equivalent, be willing to undertake this training or be able to demonstrate the relevant experience.
