These three words are at the core of the vision and values of the school and underpin our exciting and child-led school curriculum.

We are looking for a Teaching Assistant who can support and inspire not just the children in the class but also their colleagues. This role would initially be in one of our Year 3 classes.

We are looking for someone to work 2 or 3 days a week (either Thursday/Friday or Wednesday to Friday).

  • Relevant and recent experience of working in a school and specifically with the EYFS
  • An ability to communicate, work as part of a successful team, take on board advice, use your initiative and meet deadlines
  • An individual who is organised, efficient and flexible in their approach
  • A good level of English, maths and science (at least to Grade C GCSE/O level)and a willingness to further develop and widen your own skills 
  • Proficiency in the use of ICT  
  • Current knowledge of SEND is desirable

In return we can offer you:

  • A superb environment in which to work;
  • Pupils who show excellent behaviours for learning;
  • High calibre colleagues with which you would learn with and from;
  • Opportunities for professional development.

And most importantly:

  • Pritt-sticks (real ones, not those fake ones from the Kent catalogue!)
