Do you have experience of supporting teaching and learning on a one to one basis for high needs pupils and experience of supporting whole class activities?  Do you have a passion for learning and improving the outcomes for all children?

We are looking for individuals with a good basic education ideally qualified to NVQII or equivalent.  You should have previous experience of working with young children and have the skills to engage individual and groups of children in effective creative learning. 

You will need to work using your own initiative and adapt to the challenging needs of the school.  Qualification in First Aid is desirable or a willingness to train is essential. 

In return we can offer a supportive team environment, recognised effective school leadership and opportunities for personal development.

We aim to create a Christian environment in which each child is valued and special and in which respects for rights and the need for others is nurtured.  As a church school we believe all we do is supported by Biblical guidelines.

At the present time we are unable to offer visits to the school.   If you are interested in applying for this post, then please download and submit a support staff application form directly from www.kent-teach.com

Information about the school

Welcome to the Hythe Bay Church of England School and Children's Centre. At this school we strive to switch children onto learning through outstanding education and care. We are a fully extended school and we believe that people of any age who are switched onto learning become confident, creative and connected.

Hythe Bay is a Church of England school, our distinctively Christian character is seen through our ethos, atmosphere and how people are valued. Every aspect of our school life is built around the particular Christian values of love, compassion, tolerance and forgiveness.

We aim to provide children with an education that is creative, broadly based and tailored to meet individual needs. We seek to provide an open and honest atmosphere in which everyone may develop and grow in self-confidence and respect for the people and environment around them.

We are committed to working at the heart of the community in partnership with parents. In a community that places such emphasis on personal relationships, we offer you the challenge of helping to develop a caring environment that will never be complete or final. All our children and adults are learners and it is the sharing of knowledge, skills and attitudes that make this school a special place.
