Job Description

East Anstey Primary School is federated with Bishops Nympton Primary as part of the Exmoor Link Federation.

We require a highly motivated Early Years Practitioner to work part time (3 or 4 days per week), starting in January 2022. You will hold a suitable Level 3 qualification and will be working closely with nursery age children in our small mixed age Nursery/Reception/KS1 class. You will be supporting the class teacher in delivering and developing the Early Years provision, and may also be involved with some general classroom support. The post as advertised involves 3 days working at East Anstey, with an additional day available in the Bishops Nympton Nursery/Reception class.

You will need good literacy and numeracy skills, and the ability to motivate children to achieve the best they can in a patient and sympathetic manner. Any previous experience of working with children within the Early Years would be an advantage. A willingness to work as part of a team, as well as taking your own initiative when required, is essential. The ability to build effective working relationships with both children and adults is also essential for this post. You will have patience, flexibility and a very positive “can do” attitude. You will be calm and confident in your approach and will be willing to take part in further on-going training to develop your role. Other desirable (but not essential) attributes could include previous experience with speech and language work and other Special Educational Needs.

To discuss the post, or to make an appointment to visit, please contact the school.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
