  • Plymouth CAST Spinal Point 23 £23,133 per annum pro rata (£11.99 per hour)

We have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and talented Higher Level Teaching Assistant to join our strong and supportive team. This post offers a fantastic opportunity to work in an exciting and lively primary school that has a positive culture and strives to achieve the very best for all of its pupils.

The post is temporary due to changes required to classing structure as a result of increased numbers of pupils in school from September 2022.

The role will involve working with children across the school, so ideally you would have experience of working with children aged 3-11 years (or be prepared to work in different year groups). You would need to have at least an NVQ Level 3 qualification related to education or above and be confident to work with groups of children.

The main purpose of the job will be to provide learning support for pupils, to help them learn effectively as individuals, in groups, or in whole-class situations, select and prepare the resources necessary to lead learning activities and to give pupils feedback on their progress and achievement. The successful candidate will also need to demonstrate a positive attitude, a calm manner, be able to build effective relationships with staff and pupils and fully support the Christian ethos of a Catholic school.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS is required for this post.

If you are interested in this position, please contact Miss Nicola Slack, Headteacher, by emailing head@st-marysrc.devon.sch.uk for an application form.
Please apply by noon on the closing date.
Interview Date: 16 September 2022 (to be confirmed)
