Advert

We have a vacancy for an enthusiastic 1:1 teaching assistant to join our Foundation Stage team, with an immediate start. You will be working with a child with behavioural and SEMH needs. Experience in this area would be an advantage but not essential.   

This position is Monday to Friday, term time only, 8.45am to 3.00pm. (26.75 hours per week.) This is a temporary position and your contract will be tied to the child and their funding.

You will work alongside the class teacher and our supportive teaching assistants.   We have high expectations of everyone in our school - both children and adults - and firmly believe in our vision statement, that "Everyone is valued and learning is fun". We foster an ethos whereby all children develop a willingness to have a go and resilience when they feel challenged. We also encourage them to support each other in their learning. We expect everyone at Sandwich Infant School to treat each other with respect and teach this through our rich and varied curriculum. We want all the children in our care to flourish and achieve to the best of their abilities.

All applicants are required to fully complete the application form.  CVs are not required.  We will ask for references for all candidates who are shortlisted.  If an appointment is made, this will be subject to both references being received and a satisfactory DBS.  We may contact any previous employer listed on your form to clarify any information.

Shortlisting will be based on the applicant's suitability for the post linked to the job description and person specification.  Please make sure your application matches these requirements.   Your standard of English and attention to detail will be taken into consideration when we view your application form.

Visits to the school prior to application are welcome and strongly recommended.   Candidates will be notified by email about interview arrangements.
