  • NJC Grade B £9.60 per hour

We are looking for an After School Club Assistant to join our friendly team, initially on a fixed term contract until 31 August 2023. The start date will be immediate.

Exeter Learning Academy Trust (ELAT) is a partnership of primary schools based in Exeter. The Trust currently has four schools: Alphington Primary School, Bowhill Primary School, Ide Primary School and St Thomas Primary School.

We are a people-focused organisation with strong principles of enabling every child and adult within our Trust to thrive. We have high aspirations for all our children, regardless of their starting point, and, in turn, expect our staff to have high aspirations of themselves. We believe that our strength lies in working together and using our collective skills and expertise to benefit the children in our schools.

Ide Primary School is a village school located on the edge of Exeter. We have a strong and caring ethos which runs through the community, underpinned by our values of kindness and respect, teamwork, curiosity and individual best.

We are looking to find a member of staff who will get to know the children, giving energy and commitment to each child to help them to reach their full potential and feel good about their strengths.

We have a thriving after school club, where children regularly attend and enjoy the opportunity to take part in games and activities. We would like the successful candidate to play a key role in organising these, linking the plans into key events and celebrations through the school year and also into the curriculum being studied in class.

The role will include printing and collating registers of children and communicating by email with parents and carers regarding bookings via the after-school club email account.

The children have healthy drinks and snacks at the club and food preparation skills will be needed. A willingness to take part in food safety and hygiene training is essential. The candidate needs to take a role in ordering food and ensuring it is stored and prepared according to food safety standards, with due consideration of any allergies or dietary requirements that children may have.

We would also expect the successful candidate to undertake safeguarding and first aid training, to be able to ensure the safety of pupils attending the club.

We believe in professional development for all staff. You will have the opportunity to attend training, and work collaboratively with other staff in school to develop your professional practice.

Although we are a relatively small school, we like to keep at the forefront of curriculum development and give our children the most exciting opportunities possible on a local and national scale; over the past couple of years, we have achieved the “Gold” school games award, performed Henry V at the Phoenix in Exeter as part of the National Schools’ Shakespeare Festival, and had our artwork displayed at the National Gallery in London. We are currently working towards the Rainbow Flag award as part of our ambition to be inclusive for all, and we have recently been selected to have our Lego design for a house of the future displayed in the RAMM museum in Exeter over the Summer 2022.

If you have outside interests or passions that you would like to share with the children at Ide, we would be very glad to hear about these.

Ide School are part of the Exeter Learning Academy Trust, and the successful candidate will benefit from the training and opportunities from shared work and development across our schools which we offer as a trust.
